Concert Listings Roundup #217

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:

ANAMAI (YlangYlang / Xuan Ye + David Jones) / The Baby G 2017-09-21 (Thursday) [FB event]

Anamai's What Mountain release show back in May felt like a truly special event, a space where the rock'n'roll bar crowd simultaneously agreed they were there for some Deep Listening, quietly absorbing the music's delicate strands. We can only hope for as much as this night — and there are some excellent fellow voyagers on hand as well, with now-Hamilton-based YlangYlang's bedroom electronic self-ruminations and the insert-question-mark-emoji-here investigations from Xuan Ye + David Jones, a pair of restless explorers/occasional collaborators.
