Well, this should be nothing short of amazing: If you haven't heard, on Saturday, March 24, Wovenhand, led by the masterful David Eugene Edwards, is sharing a bill with Michael Gira at the Oriental Theater. Every time the former 16 Horsepower frontman plays, it's a completely noteworthy occasion, but with this being the act's first local show in over a year and with Swans' mastermind Gira also on the bill, this show merits must-see status. Tickets for the performance are $15 in advance ($18 day of show) and on sale now on the Oriental's website.
