Swans to Headline Basilica Soundscape Festival in Hudson

It’s only August but from what I hear tickets are selling very briskly for the second-ever Basilica Soundscape festival, which takes place September 12-14. And no wonder. Curated by Pitchfork’s Brandon Stousy and Leg Up Management’s Brian Deran, this year’s event features a rare Upstate appearance by apocalyptic avant rock legends Swans, as well as performances by Tim Hecker, Endless Boogie, Richard Reed Parry of Arcade Fire, Guardian Alien, Deafheaven, Gamelan Dharma Swara, and others. Additionally, Soundscape will include visual art, DJ sets, pop-up shops, and food trucks.

In terms of headliner and venue, it’s hard to dream up a better pairing than this one. Basilica’s cavernous, reclaimed-foundry space is a perfect match for Swans’ monolithic, mountain-moving sound. Stick your skull in this edificial sonic slab from a show in Paris last year and see if you don't concur:

So if you’ve been thinking of going to this humdinger of a fest, you probably shouldn’t sleep. For a full schedule and ticket prices, visit http://basilicahudson.com/.
