Calvin Johnson will be the crowning gem of the fourth cyclical installment of SANDMAN CELEBRATES THE SEASONS at The Roxy Theater on September 27th. This time it’s an autumnal post-equinox hootenanny beginning at 8pm. Mermaid Book Club will splash open the heart of the night with a home-grown set of turquoise potions and Beauts (Chris Sand's new band) will punt things off at 8pm with a bouquet of Calvin-penned punk anthems.
Calvin Johnson—founder of Olympia’s K Records and influencer of Nirvana, Mirah, Bikini Kill, Beck, The Gossip, Modest Mouse, Sleater-Kinney, Mount Eerie, Jack White (and countless other punk and lo-fi indie-rock bands)—will be sharing songs off his latest album, A Wonderful Beast, produced by the Black Keys’ Patrick Carney. Rolling Stone Magazine calls the first single “smoldering." Don’t expect anything too polished, though. Calvin has always been, at his most natural, a primitive iconoclast hewn from old growth windfall and volcanic ash.
