Concert Listings Roundup #215

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:

Bunny [Memory Curator album release celebration!] (Sandro Perri) / The Tranzac (Main Hall) 2017-09-08 (Friday) [FB event]

Burn Down The Capital presents (feat. Chris Corsano / Friends & Neighbors / Retired) / D.D.L. 2017-09-08 (Friday – all ages!) [FB event]

What sort of mood do you think you'll be in come Friday? One of these gigs will surely suit some point on your emotional spectrum. On the mellow-to-ebullient side of things, Bunny launches their excellent Memory Curator album at The Tranzac. Pop perfection from The Bicycles' Drew Smith, growing out of its earlier incarnation as Dr. Ew (whose 2010 Gadzooks in an underappreciated gem), with a side-order of Sandro Perri to warm things up.

Meanwhile, if your blood is a little more frenzied, you'll want to catch master out-jazz percussionist Chris Corsano at a Burn Down the Capital showcase that also features Norwegian avant jazz crew Friends & Neighbors paying tribute to Ornette Coleman as well as local jazz-punk faves Retired.
