Concert Listings Roundup #214

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:

Audiopollination #54 (feat. Minibeast [Keith Seidel/Eric Baylies/Peter Prescott] / Insect Factory [Jeff Basky] / Sandy Ewen) / Array Space 2017-08-21 (Monday) [FB event]

After a summer break, beloved improvised music series Audiopollination returns with this Monday-night special with some high-powered out-of-town guests before returning to its usual "self-curated" format. Known for his work with Mission of Burma and Volcano Suns, Peter Prescott brings his Minibeast project to town, joined by Jeff Barsky's meditative/atmospheric guitar project Insect Factory. And Sandy Ewen, who has some local roots, is no stranger to Audiopollination.
