The Swell Season Announce Last Minute Show

The Swell Season featuring Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova will be performing an intimate set at the legendary McCabe's Guitar Shop on February 12, 2012. The Swell Season have made a habit of calling McCabe's home when in the Los Angeles area having performed there a number of times. This will be the first show the duo has played since October 2010 and their first time back in Los Angeles since headlining a sold out Hollywood Bowl show in July 2010. At the time the duo were touring in support of Strict Joy their follow up to the Grammy nominated Once soundtrack.

While The Swell Season has been relatively quiet over the last year their music and name has not. The documentary, The Swell Season debuted at Tribeca Film festival and went on to play at numerous festivals and theaters across the country. It comes out on DVD on March 13, 2012. Once The Musical opened this past winter to rave reviews and quickly sold out its entire three month run at The New York Theatre Workshop. The musical has now moved to Broadway and opens on March 18, 2012 at the Bernard Jacobs Theatre.

Separately both Marketa and Glen have remained active. Marketa released her debut full length Anar on Anti Records in fall of 2011 and has toured continually in support of it. Glen has been busy recording and touring. He supported Eddie Vedder in summer 2011 and headed to Europe on his own headlining run later that fall. This coming year is going to prove busy for both of them with further recording projects and touring (see dates below).

This show quite innocently came together as the two find themselves in Los Angeles for an event with The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. Proceeds from this show will be going to two charities that close friends of Glen and Mar have championed for some time. The first is the animal shelter, Camp Cocker (http://www.campcocker.com/) and the second is Batonga Foundation (www.batongafoundation.org), which provides secondary education to girls in Africa.
