Concert Listings Roundup #51

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:

Bombino / Harbourfront Centre (W------ Stage) 2014-06-30 (Monday – free!) [more info]

Tamashek groove music might be best known in these parts through the work of Tinariwen, but Niger's Omara "Bombino" Moctar brings his own style of guitar heroics to it. The music has a subtle drone effect, which is perfect for dancing to on a summer night.
