Michael Gira Playing At Shearwater Album Premiere Show.

"I'll be playing a special acoustic set May 5th in celebration of my friends in Shearwater releasing their new album "Rook". My friend Thor is in the band, and they're all nice people and their music is excellent, so I hope to see you there. All the best!"
