Concert Listings Roundup #59

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.

Gigs of the week:

Totenbaum Träger [tape release!] (Moonwood / Colin Fisher + Mike Gennaro / The Knot) / Ratio 2014-08-29 (Friday) [more info]

Man Finds Fire Presents (feat. Fresh Snow / Doomsquad / Petra Glynt / North America) / Geary Lane 2014-08-29 (Friday) [FB event]

Except for the fact that they're tempo-spatially mutually exclusive, there's not much to dislike about this pair of gigs at two wonderful new spaces. Perhaps you can let your decision depend on if you want weird-noise burrowing internally into your psyche at Ratio or some avant grooves to get your existential booty moving at Geary Lane.
