Seen above is Calvin Johnson (The Hive Dwellers) and Linton (of the the newly-reformed Aisler Set) in Los Angeles, CA. Linton wandered over to a performance by The Hive Dwellers, Bouquet and Dream Boys in Los Angeles at Ooga Booga 2. Linton is the down-the-street neighbor of Wayne from Dream Boys. We’re not talking Los Angeles-style down the street (two-three miles), Linton and Wayne live only a few houses apart (where above photog was taken)!
This week Shaggy Sample are touring through the Northwest, including a show in Olympia on Sunday, August 24. Their new album My other Car Is can be obtained from their snazzy site on the world-wide web.
Shaggy Sample is the Oakland, CA combo that claimed Evan Hashi (on the far left in above photog) after he left the Hive Dwellers and headed to the San Francisco Bay area early last year. Evan is the drummer on the latest Hive Dwellers album Moanin’ [KLP249]; see below LP cover:
