Concert Listings Roundup #169

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:

Tribute to the Life of Ken Aldcroft ["music, words and memories shared amongst family, friends, colleagues and acquaintances"] / The Tranzac (Main Hall) 2016-10-07 (Friday) [FB event]

There's not much to be said here. If you knew Ken Aldcroft or his music, this is the place to gather this week. Music, friends, and even a potluck dinner, this is a chance to remember how important it is not to take the presence of the people you know for granted.

Bandcamp corner:

  • With Lina Allemano over in Berlin, there has only been one gig from Glamour Nails, her electroacoustic/noise duo project with Justin Haynes. Fortunately, there's now this digital album to fill in the gap and anticipate the further possibilities.
  • Meanwhile, here's another duo set from Haynes, this time from some few years back in the murky past alongside prepared guitar master Nilan Perera. I love it when artists use bandcamp as a chance to share things from their archives like this — and word is we can be expecting more from Perera.
