Concert Listings Roundup #220

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:

X Avant XII (feat. Man Forever / Germaine Liu + Ensemble / Luyos MC/Reila) / 918 Bathurst 2017-10-11 (Wednesday) [FB event]

X Avant XII: James Tenney: Resistance / 918 Bathurst 2017-10-15 (Sunday) [FB event]

if you saw last week's preview, it's no surprise that The Music Gallery's twelfth edition of their fall festival is the week's big event. I won't rehash what I said in the preview, but all of these events are worth coming out for, even — or especially — if it's something you don't know very well. This is a pretty varied festival, united by its theme of resistance more than genre limits, so as the MG settles into 918 Bathurst, come and experience the strange and the familiar mix and remix in new ways.

[And do note, if you're reading this shortly after this preview is posted, you have a chance to enter to win a FESTIVAL PASS courtesy of the Music Gallery! Follow the link to the preview for the details; closes October 9th at 5 p.m.!]
