Concert Listings Roundup #212

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:

Native North America Gathering (feat. Duke Redbird / Willie Thrasher and Linda Saddleback / Willy Mitchell / Shingoose / Lawrence Martin with Vern Cheechoo / Lloyd Cheechoo / Eric Landry / Leland Bell / Brian Davey / John Angaiak / Alexis Utatnaq) / Trinity-St. Paul's 2017-08-08 (Tuesday) [FB event]

A monumental night at Trinity-St. Paul's brings together several of the musicians whose place in Canadian music history was reasserted with the release of 2014's Native North America compilation. Surely an opportunity that isn't going to come around again, this show is really not to be missed.
