Concert Listings Roundup #175

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:

Emergents I (feat. Völur / Wapiti) / The Music Gallery 2016-11-17 (Thursday) [FB event]

Just as saplings can push out from the unlikliest cracks in the concrete, musicians can "emerge" from many points of origin. Although the Music Gallery's Emergents series used to focus more closely on those emerging into the classical/New Music firmament, the scope has slowly broadened, leading to an interesting wider view. The first instalment of this season's series sees Wapiti, a more traditional sort of Emergents duo who'll be bringing some Morton Feldman and contemporary composed works being matched with Völur, a doom-folk trio that's more often seen at metal-hewing gigs. The opportunities for cool discoveries continue, and the Emergents shows are a great deal for Music Gallery members at $8 a pop.
