Calvin Johnson, Tori Kudo, Los Angeles, Calif.


The Pink Elephant’s Gravecast is also available from Stitcher and iTunes.

This episode of the Pink Elephant’s Graveyard is an exploration of music discovered on a recent West Coast tour by the Hive Dwellers  (of which Calvin Johnson is a member, along with Ben Kapp and Gabriel Will). We follow the Hive Dwellers from Washington through California and back to Oregon. All of the recordings included here were acquired on the journey, or represent a path crossed with the particular artist featured, including local combos (Ings, Panduhs, Secret Cat, Bouquet), fellow touring troubadours (Devon Williams, Stephen Steinbrink, Tele Novella) and the musical sage encountered by chance somewhere along the way (Dean Wareham, White Rainbow, Maher Shalal Hash Baz).

The above photog shows Calvin with Tori Kudo just prior to a performance by Maher Shalal Hash Baz at Chin’s Push in Los Angeles. For more photogs and video documentation of this event go HERE.

Below are photogs of the featured artists and links to their recordings.
