With a list of music credits longer than your arm, songwriter, bandleader, record label owner and all-around indie icon Calvin Johnson has spent the last 30 years setting trends and representing the best of DIY culture with his label K Records and his bands Beat Happening, the Halo Benders, the Hive Dwellers and others.
When the Olympia, WA, native was in Sonoma County in 2016, Johnson unveiled his latest musical concoction, Selector Dub Narcotic, which boasted a DJ-oriented sound that mixes dance club beats and Johnson’s droned vocals delivering eccentric lyrics.
Now, Selector Dub Narcotic returns of the North Bay for a surprise last-minute show on Wednesday, Jan 31, at Brew in Santa Rosa. The show will feature two equally unconventional supporting bands in the form of Santa Rosa art rock act Hose Rips and quirky Sebastopol songwriter Big Kitty. Baked goods, beer, coffee, and other food and beverages will be available.
This intimate show is likely to fill to capacity quickly, so show up early on Wednesday, Jan 31, to Brew, 555 Healdsburg Ave, Santa Rosa. Doors open at 6pm, music starts at 7pm. All Ages. $10-$20. For more info, click here.
