Concert Listings Roundup #223

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:

Odonis Odonis [No Pop record release!] (Beliefs [Habitat record release!]) / The Garrison 2017-11-03 (Friday) [FB event]

It's a double celebration, with two albums from local fave bands. Odonis Odonis' No Pop shows that the Nitzer Ebb cover they were doing last year was something of a glimpse of things to come, while Beliefs' sonic expansion continues with the shimmeringly-austere Habitat.
