Concert Listings Roundup #190

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:

Not The Wind Not The Flag with Rob Clutton (Matias Rozenberg / Magali Meagher) / Burdock Music Hall 2017-03-09 (Thursday) [FB event]

As we've seen in the past with the likes of William Parker and Josh Cole, adding a bassist to Brandon Valdivia and Colin Fisher's cosmic jams gives a different sense of structure to the prceedings. Presumably Rob Clutton will help shape things in his own way in this special encounter. (Also on tap: opening sets from a couple beloved Blocks Recording Club veterans.
