Concert Listings Roundup #138

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:

Somewhere There presents: All-Set! Triple Album Launch (feat. Ali Berkok / Mike Smith and Jonathan Adjemian / The See Through Five) / Array Space 2016-03-05 (Saturday) [FB event]

Hot on the heels of their bountiful festival, Somewhere There are back to present this triple-header, celebrating a trio of albums on the new All Set! label. All three entries here are connected through the band Aurochs (and, if you reach back, through the belovedly-extinct Muskox), but there's quite a range from Ali Berkok's solo piano work to Mike Smith and Jonathan Adjemian's Transcombobulating synth-wiggling and See Through Five's Utilitarian chamber-prog compositions.
