Concert Listings Roundup #174

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:

Ken Aldcroft Convergence Ensemble [Tour Send-off and Trio Records Marketplace] / The Tranzac (Southern Cross Lounge) 2016-11-09 (Wednesday) [FB event]

Last month's Ken Aldcroft memorial at The Tranzac was a "commerce free" zone, but here's your chance to support his family and fill in some gaps in your music collection, with all of Ken's available albums being offered for sale. There's bundle deals available so you'll want to grab a few. (I especially recommend the THREADS disc and the solo Mister, Mister.) The night is also a send-off for the Convergence Ensemble, with the members taking Ken's music out on a tour that he had arranged before his passing. [N.B.: You can make a night of it at the Tranzac with Brodie West's Quartet playing in the early slot.]

This week's noteworthy shows:
