Concert Listings Roundup #98

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:

PPOP Presents (feat. Surinam [cassette release party!] PANIC / Past Crimes) / Soybomb 2015-05-29 (Friday) [FB event]

JOOJ [album release party!] (Carl Didur [live score] / Benjamin Kamino [dance]) / Double Double Land 2015-05-29 (Friday) [FB event]

Mechanical Forest Sound Presents (feat. Moonwood / Manticore / Mirrors) / Ratio 2015-05-29 (Friday) [FB event]

On a pretty busy week, it's just too hard to narrow things down to one show, so let's highlight a couple worthy album release shows on Friday night. The Suicide-meets-Marlene Dietrich of Sook-Yin Lee's JOOJ is celebrating at DDL, while Anagram-descendants Surinam will be spraying blood, pacing nervously and generally punishing the halfpipe at Soybomb — so your particular mood/emotional needs might dictate which one of those is right for you. Or, if you want to get an earlier start to the night, drop in to Ratio for a MMMarvelous night of drone-pop (which, full disclosure, I am presenting) from Moonwood, Mirrors and Manticore — it'll even wrap up in time for you to go check out your choice of the headliners above.
