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.

Now in its fifth year, the Somewhere There festival has become a true celebration of the many strands of the local creative music communities. With five shows over the weekend, there's lots of music, plus a keynote lecture and a panel discussion (on dance and improvised music) to provoke conversations. Come and witness new music, unfinished music, impossible music all presented in the spirit of spontaneous joy.

Mixcloud corner:

  • I had a fun time making a playlist for yesterday's drone brunch — so much so that I ended up with more than eight hours of material! So seeing as I have it all gathered together, I shuffled it up and will convert it into a series of hour-long mixes. To keep things interesting, expect about 40% drone and 60% drone-adjacent sounds from various genres. Here's the first one, expect a new one weekly for the next while.
