Concert Listings Roundup #158

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:

BIG on Bloor Festival (feat. Brenna MacCrimmon & Demetri Petsalakis / Eucalyptus / LAL / Prince Nifty / OG Melody / Mamalia) / St. Clarens Stage 2016-07-23 (Saturday – free! outdoors! all ages! street vibes!) [more info]

There's a reasonable amount of tastiness at the festival's other stages (see below) but you're not gonna do much better than the run of Eucalyptus/LAL/Prince Nifty/OG Melody in the middle of the schedule at this stage programmed by the ever-wonderful folks at Holy Oak Café. Essential street action!

Bandcamp corner:

  • It was back a year ago December that I saw the Gordon Brothers preview the songs from their completed follow up to the excellent Ragged Gold, which has now finally seen the light of day. Night always falls, and then the dancing begins.
  • Fans of Kappa Chow's primordial basement scuzz-punk should check out this new effort from the (now Toronto-based) Protruders.
