Concert Listings Roundup #135

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:

Wavelength Music Festival 16 – Night 1 (feat. FOXTROTT / Calvin Love / Keita Juma / Programm / Organ Mood) / The Garrison 2016-02-12 (Friday) [FB event]

Wavelength Music Festival 16 – Day 2 (feat. Foxes in Fiction / Merganzer / Steven Lambke) / Markham House 2016-02-13 (Saturday – afternoon show!) [FB event]

Wavelength Music Festival 16 – Night 2 (feat. Duchess Says / Soupcans / Beliefs / Partner / VERSA) / The Garrison 2016-02-13 (Saturday) [FB event]

Wavelength Music Festival 16 – Night 3 (feat. Thus Owls / She-Devils / Prince Innocence / Clairmont The Second / Pantayo) / The Garrison 2016-02-14 (Sunday) [FB event]

Unburdened by a lack of round numbers to celebrate, this year's Wavelength Festival is a bit more back-to-basics than we've seen in the past couple years. But what it lacks in big-name headliners it more than makes up in well-selected up-and-comers. A very good weekend who those who want to create some future memories instead of having their nostalgia catered to. (The festival is also more settled geographically as well, with three nights at The Garrison in lieu of the traditional venue-hopping, with the added bonus of an all-ages daytime show on Saturday.)
