From M. Gira:

“Hello Folks, At the request of my old friend Jim Thirlwell, I’ll be playing
a solo acoustic set for the final set of his month long programming of shows
at The Stone in NYC Tuesday September 30 at 10 PM. Go here for details:

“My set will include 2 new songs (maybe a 3rd – I’m working on it), the Swans
song ‘I Crawled’ from 1984 (ridiculous to play this song on acoustic guitar,
but I think it works somehow) as well as various Angels of Light and other
Swans songs.

“I hope to see you there. In keeping with the informality of this show, I’ve
asked that the admission be $5.”
