Concert Listings Roundup #153

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:

Burn Down The Capital (feat. Jooklo Duo with Colin Fisher / CCMC / Cory Latkovich & Robert Grieve) / Ratio 2016-06-13 (Monday) [FB event]

Some prime cuts of avant-shred and free noise at this one, combining the headliners (visiting from Italy) with local fave Colin Fisher (of Not The Wind, Not The Flag, etc. etc. etc.) and mixing in lifers CCMC and selected components of Imaginary Flesh in the form of two slices of dreamed meat.
