Posted by: on Jan 26, 2018 | Comments (0)

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.

Catch The Coathangers In Santa Rosa This Weekend

Garage rock doesn’t get much better than Atlanta’s the Coathangers. Together for over a decade, the three ladies in the band match their power rock hooks with a relentlessly fun brashness that has made them a must-see live act across the states.

Later this year, the Coathangers will welcome a new rip-roaring EP, Parasite, into the world via Suicide Squeeze Records. But, before the record’s June 30th release, the trio is laying down an obscene amount of miles with a full US tour that lands them in Santa Rosa this weekend. The show is being hosted by tireless music purveyor Shock City, USA.

Joining the Coathangers on the show are Oakland’s romantic punks the Younger Lovers, Los Angeles three-chord tearjerkers Girl Tears and local rockers Hose Rips, previously known as Secret Cat, who make their debut under the new name.

Haven’t heard the Coathangers? No problem, click below and listen to the band’s latest single, “Captain’s Dead,” from the forthcoming EP. The Coathangers roll into town on Sunday, March 12, at the Arlene Francis Center. 99 Sixth St, Santa Rosa. 7pm. $12. Get tickets here.
