Concert Listings Roundup #136

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:

INsulator (feat. members of Holy Fuck / Jooj with Sandro Perri / Not The Wind, Not the Flag / Lido Pimentia / Yamantaka//Sonic Titan) / Artscape Sandbox 2016-02-17 (Wednesday) [FB event]

INsulator (feat. members of Fucked Up / Egyptrixx / Mary Margaret O'Hara / Jennifer Castle / DOOMSQUAD / Soupcans) / Artscape Sandbox 2016-02-18 (Thursday) [FB event]

UPDATE: "Due to unforeseen circumstances, the event is unable to happen as planned, so the event needs to be delayed to resolve the issues." All previously purchased tickets are valid for the new dates. APRIL 13 +14. I'm not entirely sure what to expect from this "giant maze and audio-visual experience" presented by Long Winter and Heretical Objects Cooperative, though it's promised to be an immersive event with the music from a wide range of cool folks playing behind fabric walls and blending together into a sonic tapestry. Expect more of an exploratory soundscape journey than a "concert" experience.
