A smattering of intriguing musical events for your perusal...
Local Natives were just at LC Pavilion's indoor stage last night, but today news came out that they'll return June 15 to play the outdoor stage for Next @ Wex Fest with The National and Matthew E. White. Tickets for that one went on sale a month ago when the initial news about The National came out, but you can still get them for $25 ($32.85 after fees).
Influential DIY veterans Ian Svenonius (Nation of Ulysses, The Make-Up, Chain and the Gang) and Calvin Johnson (Beat Happening, Hive Dwellers) will perform as Dub Narcotic Sound System May 8 at Skylab Gallery after Svenonious speaks about his new book, Supernatural Strategies for Making a Rock ‘n’ Roll Group, at the Wexner Center. Details on both events here. Svenonious was a stupendous showman when he came through town with Chain and the Gang last year, so both gigs should be great.
