Chain & the Gang+the Hive Dwellers
This sweet double bill features two new bands from as many DIY lifers: Chain and the Gang is the latest project from former Nation of Ulysses/Make-Up dude Ian Svenonius; on Down with Liberty
Up with Chains! they add a little gutbucket funk to Svenoniuss long-established soul-punk sound. Beat Happening frontman (and K Records founder) Calvin Johnsons fresh Hive Dwellers outfit shares members with Chain and the Gang; hopefully their stuff doesnt share too much with Johnsons last several solo discs. With City Center.
