Concert Listings Roundup #180

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:

Jennifer Castle (Fiver / Damian Rogers) / The Horseshoe Tavern 2016-12-21 (Wednesday) [more info]

The concert scene is thin this weekend, for some reason, but there's lots to do in the earlier part of the week. Best of all, Jennifer Castle is returning with another birthday/solstice celebration, this time out at the 'Shoe. Essential recalibration for anyone looking ahead to winter with dread instead of a sense of celebration. (Those wanting to celebrate the solstice in a different way should check out the Winter's Drone event at the Tranzac on the same night.)
