Concert Listings Roundup #162

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:

Camp Wavelength (feat. Operators / Jef E. Barbara's Black Space / For Esmé / M.A BEAT! / MATROX / Wolf Saga / Latasha Alcindor a.k.a. L.A. / Brendan Philip) / Artscape Gibraltar Point 2016-08-19 (Friday) [FB event]

Camp Wavelength (feat. Cloud Nothings / Odonis Odonis / Moss Lime / LAL / Spek Won / Casper Skulls / Hex / Guerilla Toss / Petra Glynt / Scott Hardware / Nhapitapi Mbira) / Artscape Gibraltar Point 2016-08-20 (Saturday) [FB event]

Camp Wavelength (feat. Young Galaxy / Lydia Ainsworth / Bruce Peninsula / Bart / Michelle McAdorey / Castle If) / Artscape Gibraltar Point 2016-08-21 (Sunday) [FB event]

Like a weekend at the cottage for the city-bound, Camp Wavelength is a late-summer soul-salve and sonic banquet deluxe. Mixing big names and up-and-comers and tossing them together without undue regard to genre, this is the city's smallest big festival, and one that treats its participants as more than just cattle to be herded through a chute and into the maelstrom of the cultural-fattening pens. Mellow vibes, easy beach access and all sorts of MFS faves up on stage.
