Concert Listings Roundup #221

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:

Bill Gilliam/Kayla Milmine/Ambrose Pottie [Entangled Pathways CD release!] / Array Space 2017-10-18 (Wednesday) [FB event]

There's some spectacular gigs this week (including Hans Joachim Roedelius's much-anticipated local appearance alongside some very tasty local support) but I wouldn't want this modest endeavour to get lost in the shuffle. Bringing together three highly-flexible improvisers, this trio can show hints of melodic tunefulness alongside a collective will to derail those same instincts and head for thornier ground. It's also pleasing for an ensemble like this to be documented on a proper album, so that's additional cause for celebration. (Here's a couple clips from when I caught these three playing together before at The Tranzac — I'm looking forward to hearing Bill Gilliam get inside Array's grand piano to add some preparations to the night's twists.)
