Concert Listings Roundup #141

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:

Wavelength 696: Don't Speak (feat. Benoît Pioulard / North Atlantic Drift / David Jones) / Array Space 2016-03-25 (Friday) [FB event]

If you've felt like Wavelength has had scant offerings when its not in festival mode lately, fear not, as they have re-committed to their monthly showcase format, promising a focus on shows with an added conceptual or visual component to make them feel more like experiences and less like a regular gig. There's gonna be a lot of that on offer at this show, with its injunction on any verbal communication inside the venue — all the better to be able to really soak in some atmospheric, ambient pop styles (including some ace local openers).

This week's noteworthy shows:

Karen Ng + Mike Gennaro (ACK! [Avesta Nakhaei/Chris Adriaanse/Karen Ng]) / The Tranzac (Southern Cross Lounge) 2016-03-22 (Tuesday – early!) [FB event]
