Concert Listings Roundup #102

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:

Wavelength 669 (feat. The Ex / Swedish azz feat. Mats Gustafsson / Brodie West & Fleshtone Aura) / Hard Luck 2015-06-23 (Tuesday) [FB event]

Essential, life-affirming guitar collisions are at hand with the return of Amsterdam's avant-garde, transcultural punk legends. I've never left an Ex gig without feeling a sort of spiritual contact high from the sparks raised from the intersecting lines of Terrie Ex and Andy Moor's guitars. Add to that a set from sax master Mats Gustafsson's soundclash Swedish Azz and an opening salvo from Brodie West & Fleshtone Aura and your week is set. Do not miss.

[Bonus interview action! I had a chance to chat with Andy Moor over at ye olde Wavelog.]
