Swell Season announce spring dates, returning to Raleigh

The Oscar winning duo of Glen Hansard and Markéta Irglová, better known as The Swell Season, are gearing up for a new U.S. tour that will bring them back to Raleigh. They last played here in May 2008 at Meymandi Hall, which was a fantastic show. You can read that review here.

This time, the band will grace the outdoor stage at the North Carolina Museum of Art on Friday, May 21. Ticket info is not yet available for the show, but we'll keep you posted. Tickets are on sale now here for $30 or $20.
