Concert Listings Roundup #39

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.

Gig of the week:

Wavelength 593 (feat. Picastro Record Release!] / (Magali Meagher [early show] / Paul Schedlich [late show]) / CineCycle 2014-04-09 (Wednesday) [FB event]

Wavelength has a flurry of shows coming up, but this week's is one of the ones I'm most looking forward to, with long-time sleep-rock/drone-pop unit Picastro launching new album You. You have your choice of early or late shows, and the edge here goes to the early show with Magali Meagher, fondly remembered for her work in The Phonemes, making her long-awaited return to live action. [Update! It looks like early + late shows have been merged into one single show, which means that you'll be able to see Meagher and Paul Schedlich without having to pick! Doors at 7:30, show at 8:30!]
