Music Menu: Richard Swift

Posted By on Sat, Jun 13, 2009 at 9:00 AM

Richard Swift. The Fray blah-blah-blah, hit song on Lost blah-blah-blah, blah-blah-the American Coldplay-blah, etc. The only possible reasons for attending this show if you're not a weepy 16-year-old are to hear what the acoustics sound like at the new Uptown venue, or opener Richard Swift, who's been described as "Prince sitting in on the Plastic Ono Band sessions." In fact, given Swift's sophisticated melodies, keen sense of the macabre and droll lyrics (all displayed on this year's theatrical The Atlantic Ocean), you wonder if this pairing was arranged as a lark – sort of like Nilsson opening for 'NSync. Opening gig for the Uptown Amphitheatre.
