Concert Listings Roundup #202

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.

Gigs of the week:

Decreation (feat. Ways / Cluttertones / Blessings) / Ratio 2017-06-02 (Friday) [FB event]

Decreation (feat. ¼ Tonne / Processor / Craig Dunsmuir) / Ratio 2017-06-03 (Saturday) [FB event]

Decreation (feat. Alan Licht & Michael Snow / Not The Wind, Not The Flag / Zoë / Heraclitus Akimbo with Paul Newman) / Ratio 2017-06-04 (Sunday) [FB event]

Some dreams are much too real to be leaned against for too long — and given the realities of keeping a DIY space going it was not entirely surprising to hear the collective behind the wonderful Ratio space announce their imminent winding-down. Dubbed "Decreation", their formal final bow takes place with three shows this weekend (as well as one last blast on June 10th) bringing together many of the artists who have created wonderful memories at Ratio. These last chances to hang out in one of the city's coziest, friendliest venues are not to be missed.
