Concert Listings Roundup #161

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:

Eric Chenaux (Ryan Driver) / Burdock Music Hall 2016-08-13 (Saturday) [FB event]

The Draperies / Quixotic Sounds 2016-08-14 (Sunday) [FB event]

Absence making the heart grow fonder and all of that, Eric Chenaux's annual-ish returnings to T.O. always feel like special events. This weekend sees him playing in a couple different contexts, playing solo on Saturday night at Burdock and exploring Draperies' curious drift-world alongside Ryan Driver and Doug Tielli in a live-recording session at Quixotic Sounds on Sunday. Miss these and you'll be waiting for awhile.
