Concert Listings Roundup #211

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:

Track Could Bend #29 (feat. BABEL / Invisible Out / Tom Richards) / The Steady Café 2017-08-01 (Tuesday – PWYC!) [FB event]

Some differing zones of electronic experimentation at this month's TCB, with the frazzled social media mysteries of Xuan Ye & Jason Doell's Invisible Out and some soothing shoreline drones from Tom Richards. But most notably, this is purported to be the final-ever show for Jakob Rehlinger's BABEL, as he prepares to pivot to new projects.
