DJ Rob Swift: Live! The Documented Movement
On February 25, 2010 one hundred or so New Yorkers braved through blizzard conditions and gathered at Club Legion in Brooklyn, NY to celebrate the release of Rob Swift's 4th album THE ARCHITECT. As much as that night served as a prelude to his various tour dates throughout the globe, spreading the word of his latest LP, it was also a nostalgic reminder of Rob's humble past as a member of the X - men. "We used to pack small rooms, intimate venues... just like this... and we'd be excited!" Hence, welcome to DJ Rob Swift: Live! The Documented Movement.
