Concert Listings Roundup #90

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:

Feast in the East 47 (feat. Picastro / Charles Spearin's Roadside Silhouettes / Isla Craig / A. Minster) / Jam Factory 2015-04-04 (Saturday) [FB event]

Not so much of a rager at this month's mellower feast, but you can expect to see a tour-sharpened Picastro, a new improvising ensemble from Charlie Spearin, as well as some new tunes from Isla Craig.
