Concert Listings Roundup #188

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:

SEVENTEEN: Wavelength Music Festival 17 (feat. TOPS / DIANA / Vallens / Chandra) / The Garrison 2017-02-17 (Friday – $3 with RSVP!) [FB event]

SEVENTEEN: Wavelength Music Festival 17 – Exclaim! & Girls Rock Camp Toronto co-present An All Ages Matinee (feat. Peeling / WLMRT / Strands / Denim Roses) / Monarch Tavern 2017-02-18 (Saturday – matinee! all ages!) [FB event]

SEVENTEEN: Wavelength Music Festival 17 (feat. Julie Doiron & The Wrong Guys / Fake Palms / FET.NAT / WHOOP-Szo / Helena Deland) / The Garrison 2017-02-18 (Saturday) [FB event]

SEVENTEEN: Wavelength Music Festival 17 – Mechanical Forest Sound co-presents "Drone Brunch" (feat. North Atlantic Drift / Kat Estacio) / Gladstone Hotel – Melody Bar 2017-02-19 (Sunday – free! all ages!) [FB event]

SEVENTEEN: Wavelength Music Festival 17 – co-presented with Silent Shout (feat. Phèdre / Han Han with HATAW / Emay / Fin / Hush Pup) / The Garrison 2017-02-19 (Sunday) [FB event]

No surprise here — Wavelength's annual anniversary festival is a February long weekend staple 'round these parts. It's simply a delight that I can say that my attendance still arises out of eagerness for its forward-thinking programming rather than out of a sense of mere habit or nostalgia. Once again, the festival is settled into The Garrison for three nights, but there are also two daytime excursions further afield, including an ace co-presentation with Girls Rock Camp on Saturday, and an ambient "drone brunch" that I had a hand in on Sunday. Don't let winter get the best of you; come out and celebrate a strong and flourishing community.
