Calvin Johnson - Somebody's Phone is Ringing

Calvin Johnson - Love Will Come Back Again

Full review to follow. Given the billing, I was expecting that Johnson would be presenting some of the material from his brand-new Hive Dwellers album in a solo setting. What I wasn't expecting was that the show was going to be completely unplugged, with no mic or amplification of any kind — there were even a couple songs performed a capella. I did what I could to capture the set with the gear on hand — at any rate, it's hard to imagine something more intimate than this. A fairly wonderful experience.
