Concert Listings Roundup #47

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:

PANIC [debut show! LP release party!] (Wyrd Visions) / Smiling Buddha 2014-06-06 (Friday) [FB event]

PANIC is fronted by Simon Oates (ex-No No Zero) and includes some other familiar faces (Chris Sandes, Johnny LaRue) generating some Birthday Party-esque badvibe hoodoo. They released a tasty album at the end of last year, and are now making their live debut at this gig.
