Concert Listings Roundup #106

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:

Event Cloak (Jeffrey Alexander / Love Thy Will Be Done [Thom Gill & Band] / New Chance) / Ratio 2015-07-25 (Saturday) [FB event]

a certifiable Big Event at ratio sees what should be an impressive headlining set from Montréal's Nick Maturo, who records crystalline synthscapes as Event Cloak. His work has the stamp of approval of being on the excellently-designed Orange Milk label. But local heads will also be flipping to see Love Thy Will Be Done, which is Thom Gill's post-THOMAS reincarnation with an all-star backing crew. There'll be some sweet grooves from New Chance as well. Not to be missed!
