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.

Gigs of the week:

Intersection Day 1: Music Gallery Departures Series (feat. Mick Barr + Thin Edge New Music Collective + Droid) / Jam Factory 2017-08-31 (Thursday – all ages!) [FB event]

Intersection Day 2 (feat. Evyind Kang/Jessika Kenney/Andrew Timar/Pedram Khavarzamini/Araz Salek / Völur [acoustic set]) / Jam Factory 2017-09-01 (Friday) [FB event]

Intersection Day 3 (feat. Northumbria / Meridian / Contact / Carl Didur / Jason Doell & Xuan Ye / The Visit / Kristina Guison / Dialectica Sax Quartet) / Yonge-Dundas Square 2017-09-02 (Saturday – free! outside! all ages + family-friendly! weird sonic interventions in the mersh fabric!) [FB event]

One of the year's most consistently interesting musical experiences is sprawling out a bit this time round, with the annual Intersection festival now stretching out to four events astride the long weekend. (The last event, the very excellent Plant Music event at Allan Gardens, is not listed above as it comes a week from now on Labour Day itself.) Great work with Burn Down the Capital once more curating (alongside event founders Contact) — and now with two rather different nights in the Jam factory as well as the traditionally-odd mix of strange sounds in Yonge-Dundas Square, a free event that puts experimental music in the city's mershiest commercial zone.
