Concert Listings Roundup #12

You can read more about why I'm doing listings here. Long story short: This curated and decidedly non-comprehensive list contains nothin' but shows that I am going to/would go to if I had more time.

The Saffron Sect (Biblical / Ostrich Tuning / Tess Parks / Elissa Mielke) / The Silver Dollar Room 2013-10-04 (Friday) [FB event]

Consumer advice:

The New Music Passport is back! You pay $39 up front, and then you can see more than 10 concerts for $5 each at the door. (Plus! A free issue of Musicworks!) A very worthy investment for anyone that wants to get a little deeper into contemporary classical/new music. You can grab one for yourself or get more info here. This is really good value for the money, and last year, I got to see some pretty decent high-class shows on the cheap.
