Concert Listings Roundup #208

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:

Eclec~Tic~Toc Fest, Vol. 1 – Night 1 (feat. James Bailey / Money House / Lorne Shapiro/Brian Abbot / Body of Waste / Retired / Bit Reduction / Mkl32 / The Bim Prongs / Ben G./Cheryl O./Barry P. / Faster) / Gerrard Art Space 2017-07-14 (Friday – PWYC!) [FB event]

Eclec~Tic~Toc Fest, Vol. 1 – Night 2 (feat. No One Receiving / Irrevery / Valarie Kuhene / Darling Cora / Damon Loren Baker / Hidden Hierarchies / Fake Flesh / Moth Ash / Knurl / {AN} EeL) / Gerrard Art Space 2017-07-15 (Saturday – PWYC!) [FB event]

Neal D. Retke (who performs as {AN} Eel) is a down-to-earth guy with a larger-than-life persona. Since becoming a member of the local wierdo/improvising community he's been collaborating with a huge range of musicians... and listening as well. This two-night event is "dedicated to bringing adventurous & forward thinking experimental sounds & performances from both local and international underground scenes, with an emphasis on unusual collaborations & crazy sounds". Gerrard & Coxwell might seem far afield if you haven't been out to the G.A.S. before, but it's quite easy to get to on the TTC, and a really cozy, welcoming space. Come out for one night or both and see a whole bunch of MFS faves in action.

Album corner:

  • Shore Line by Tom Richards
    Best drones of the week come in this free-to-download package of synth excursions from Tom Richards (of Riverrun and many other projects). Modestly-described as "intended to be used by musicians for practicing intonation and refining tone-quality", there's a lot of both foreground and background listenability here. The drone-tones start out pretty "pure", but by the stretch of Eb/G/Ab towards the end there's a lot more going on.
