Concert Listings Roundup #146

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:

Baby Cages (Jo Passed / Secret Sign / Brigitte Bardon't) / The Silver Dollar Room 2016-04-28 (Thursday) [FB event]

Womxn Pedalling ["a new performance, workshop and gathering series curated by Lido Pimienta showcasing womxn in music + exploring the use of loopers and pedal stations as core tools for music composition and performance"] (feat. Alissa Vox RAW / New Chance / Kira May / Witch Prophet) / Gladstone Hotel 2016-04-28 (Thursday) [FB event]

Two cool shows on Thursday night, and to be honest, I have no idea where I'll end up yet. But it's cool, in any event, to see some boundary-pushing shows on local stages and a whole lotta woman power. (On that theme, and pushing things in a different direction on that same night, Zimbabwean a cappella group Nobuntu are at Lula Lounge.)
