Audio: Michael Gira tells chatty audience members to get off his lawn
Michael Gira on Saturday night at the Oriental Theater
Michael Gira's show on Saturday night at the Oriental Theater with Wovenhand included a few chatterboxes with whom the 58-year-old Swans mastermind just couldn't abide. Page down to hear Gira tell the more vocal members of the crowd to "Go read Pitchfork," after demanding that they kindly "Shut the motherfucking fuck up!"
