Concert Listings Roundup #224

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:

Musicworks Magazine presents O P E N : an evening of sound interactions [curated by Riparian Acoustics] (feat. Mary Margaret O'Hara / Cheryl Duvall [solo piano] / Pursuit Grooves with Mas Aya) / 918 Bathurst 2017-11-08 (Wednesday) [FB event]

I subscribe to Musicworks Magazine — and you should probably, too. Over the past couple years they've been doing a top-notch job of celebrating experimental Canadian sounds in a pleasingly catholic sense: not just chamber music and other formal entities, but everything else from gongs to offbeat improvisations. In other words, not an entirely different universe than this blog is often situated in. The music at this fundraiser night was curated by Riparian Acoustics (Nick Storring's post-Ratio vehicle for presenting shows) — quite fitting as Storring has been doing some ace work for the mag as a writer as well. The eclectic night offers a rare chance to hear MMO'H in action, solo piano from Thin Edge's Cheryl Duvall and a collaborative set of future beats from Pursuit Grooves with Mas Aya.
