Calvin Johnson live in Liverpool!

In case you don’t already know it, Calvin Johnson, via his many musical projects and record label, has inspired and influenced a lot of indie rock artists including Kurt Cobain, Courtney Love, Beth Ditto, Sonic Youth and Beck, besides kick starting the Riot Grrl movement. (and, lest we forget, inspired Dirtblonde too, who regularly cover the Beat Happening’s Black Candy – watch video)

Calvin Johnson loved playing in Liverpool when we first brought him here a couple of years ago, and now he’s returning for his only North West gig, so don’t miss this unique opportunity to watch a true indie legend!

Best of all – this is a All Ages gig, kids!

Where: Leaf Tea Shop & Bar (27 Parliament St, Liverpool)

When: Monday 2nd August.

Doors 7pm, entry £6. Calvin Johnson will be onstage at 8pm, sharp! Support from Tom George and Emily & The Faves. Dirtblonde DJ set only. PLEASE NOTE: DOORS ONLY, NO TICKETS WILL BE ON SALE SO MAKE SURE TO GET THERE EARLY!
