Concert Listings Roundup #176

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:

Knurl (Lorde Awesome / Cares / Moth Ash) / Belljar Café 2016-11-26 (Saturday – PWYC!) [FB event]

Saturday is one of those typical jaw-dropping nights where you sorta want a few clones to spread out among the all great gigs (a groovy Wavelength excursion to a bike shop, Casper Skulls' EP release, Os Tropies celebrating a new album with special guests like Bruno Capinan and Aline Morales, and on and on) but I suspect I'll find myself as this casual night of noise and drones. This'll serve as the de facto release party for Cares' new tape, plus it's a rare chance to see Lorde Awesome — who've been building their own east-end thing with their long-running monthly residency at The Only — playing west of the Don Valley. And that's saying nothing of Knurl's loud/blissful overtone harmonics. Don't give in to the urge to hibernate — there's too damn much going on in this town!
