We are delighted to welcome Pencilhead promotions to present: Calvin Johnson + Support.

Heres what they have to say about it :

Calling all hangman hipsters, new mod rockers, sidestreet walkers, scooter-mounted dream girls, punks, teds, instigators of the Love Rock Explosion, editors of every angry grrrlzine, plotters of youth rebellion, midwestern librarians and Scottish ski instructors who live by night to an intimate live performance with CALVIN JOHNSON as part of his 'A Wonderful Beast' album tour (recorded by Patrick Carney of the Black Keys). No lackies to the corporate ogre allowed.

Calvin has been a hugely influential figure on independent freak scenes since way back in the 80's. Ever heard of KURT COBAIN? had a tattoo of Calvin's record label 'K Records'. Howsabout BECK? his first album was a collaboration with our good buddy Cal. RIOTGRRRL? Took off in Olympia, Washington with a little helping hand from Beat Happening in the late 80's.
