Concert Listings Roundup #100

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:

Sound Séance I: Day 1 (feat. EXPO 70 with Dirty Inputs / Caro Diaro / Babel) / Geary Lane 2015-06-12 (Friday) [FB event]

Sound Séance I: 5 Hour Drone (feat. Knurl / Lorde Awesome / William Davison / Isles Day / Brigitte Bardon't / Sexy Merlin / Isla Craig) / Geary Lane 2015-06-14 (Sunday – afternoon show! PWYC! all ages!) [FB event]

Sound Séance I: Day 3 (feat. Wrekmeister Harmonies / Off World / Carl Didur) / Geary Lane 2015-06-14 (Sunday) [FB event]

The first noteworthy festival of the warm-weather season is upon us. The tagline for this weekend-long affair ("An awakening of experimental music in Toronto") might sound a bit overly-sweeping (especially to those already involved with experimental music in Toronto) but there's no doubting the ambition from Invocation TO, bringers of cool culture to Geary Lane. With three nights and two days, there's definitely a chance here for some full-on immersion, and a nice mix of out-of-town guests (especially from the Montréal scene, courtesy of the festival's association with Suoni Per Il Popolo) and local faves.
