Concert Listings Roundup #191

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:

Wavelength 726: Don't Speak II (feat. Kyle Bobby Dunn / Off World / Bomb & Body [Anna Mayberry/Allie Blumas] / Zone Support) / The Baby G 2017-03-18 (Saturday) [FB event]

The first Don't Speak event came off nicely in a space that sort of implicitly suggested a quiet listening experience. We'll see if that can be pulled off again in shifting the action to a more traditional bar-type space, but this is, in any event, a worthy lineup. Arrive early to get your auras cleansed by the Zone Support crew!
