Third annual Night of the Blue Swan announced

by | Sep 27, 2017

Get ready. Swancore is taking over Anaheim and Sacramento for two nights in December.

The third annual Night of the Blue Swan has been announced. It’s the holiday party of sorts that celebrates the Blue Swan Records roster — aka the label run by Dance Gavin Dance guitarist Will Swan — along with bands associated with the label.

This year’s Night of the Blue Swan will take place in Anaheim and Sacramento — December 2nd at Chain Reaction and December 3rd at Holy Diver, respectively.

The lineup will feature Sianvar, Secret Band, Eidola, Icarus The Owl, Wolf & Bear, plus a special appearance by VIS in Anaheim.

If you’ve never been to Night of the Blue Swan, it’s usually a festive event. Last year Hail The Sun performed their 2014 album Wake in its entirety. And with Secret Band on this year’s bill, we presume Will Swan will have some tricks up his sleeve.

Tickets are on sale now. You can get tix for the Anaheim show here, and Sacramento tickets here.

And just because, here’s a stream of Secret Band‘s 2014 self-titled album.
