Concert Listings Roundup #118

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:

Pleasence Records 5 Year Anniversary (feat. Odonis Odonis / Soupcans / New Fries / Blonde Elvis) / Smiling Buddha 2015-10-16 (Friday) [FB event]

The biggest event of the week is definitely the X Avant festival, but I'm going to have more to say about that tomorrow, so for now I'm going to put a word in for this very worthy celebration. For five years now — and nearly fifty releases — Pleasence Records has been championing some of T.O.'s most inventive musical practitioners. To mark the occasion, they're gonna cram the Smiling Buddha full with a lineup that would be more than worth it on its own merits. Come out and give your heartiest congratulations to Deirdre and James — keeping a label going in this day and age doesn't happen without a lot of dedication and spiritual sweat.
