Concert Listings Roundup #209

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:

Batuki Music Society, Wavelength Music Series and Music Africa present (feat. Mbongwana Star) / The Great Hall 2017-07-19 (Wednesday) [FB event]

Just take a look atthe list of co-presenters here and you should have a clue why this one shouldn't be missed. And if that doesn't enough, maybe the notion that these futuristic sounds of Kinshasa come packaged with a "big fistful of European post-punk bass and busted electronics" will do trick.
