Concert Listings Roundup #116

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:

Not The Wind, Not The Flag [Pleasence album release!] (c_RL / Nifty) / The Tranzac (Main Hall) 2015-10-01 (Thursday) [FB event]

What can I say about Not The Wind, Not The Flag — T.O.'s best band — that I haven't said a kajillion times on this blog already? Fierce astral projections meet meditative inner peacemaking, the duo are celebrating Vermillion, their first-ever vinyl album release, on Pleasence Records. Super rad openers to boot, so this is simply not to be missed.
