For those of you looking for a little adventure on a Thursday night, you're in luck:
K Records founder Calvin Johnson and indie rapper Astronautalis will join in baritone-voiced harmony in Montauk on February 10. This is a once-ever opportunity to watch Calvin and Astronautalis perform individually and collaboratively against the backdrop of sunset in Montauk.
Tickets for a round-trip bus ride from Brooklyn to Montauk are only $30, only 40 are available.
The Montauk date kicks off a round of Calvin Johnson tour dates that continue with a Brooklyn show at Dead Herring the next day (141 S 5th St #1E between Bedford Ave & Driggs Ave) with Chain & the Gang (with Ian Svenonius), Girls in Trouble, and E-Prhyme. His full slate of Northeast/Midwest dates are below.
Calvin Johnson doesn't currently have any new musical wares (outside of K releases in general), but his K Records brethren Chain & The Gang do, as they just released their new LP, Music's Not For Everyone. The LP features the new track "Why Not" available for download above/stream below. Order a copy at K Records, and check out the song stream, art/tracklisting, and all Calvin Johnson dates below.
