Concert Listings Roundup #226

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:

Lina Allemano double release party! (feat. Lina Allemano Four / Lina Allemano's Titanium Riot) / The Tranzac (Southern Cross Lounge) 2017-11-28 (Tuesday) [FB event]

LUKA [What Kind of Animal album release!] (SlowPitchSound / Isla Craig) / The Baby G 2017-11-28 (Tuesday) [FB event]

Tuesday sees two excellent albums release parties, and you can't go wrong here either way. Energized by plenty of recent time spent in Berlin, Lina Allemano presents new albums from two of her primary Toronto-based projects: the jazz-composition oriented Lina Allemano 4 as well as the more abstract/exploratory electroacoustic unit Titanium Riot. There are stupendous musicians in both units (Brodie West and Andrew Downing in the former, Ryan Driver and Rob Clutton in the latter, and Nick Fraser in both) and this should be a joyous, packed show — arrive early if you want a seat! Meanwhile, Luke Kuplowsky releases a new set of carefully-wrung observations on love in a night opening sets from MFS faves Isla Craig (seagull ballads) and SlowPitchSound (sci-fi beatscapes).
