Concert Listings Roundup #227

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:

60 plus 20: Celebrating Dan Burke (feat. The Highest Order / Comet Control / Hooded Fang plus special guests) / Lee's Palace 2017-12-08 (Friday) [FB event]

Local legend Dan Burke has long had an eye that could spot a spark in a musician or band, honed over twenty years of putting on shows. He'll be celebrating that landmark (as well as his 60th birthday) at this huge blowout at Lee's, with a series of sets from some of his favourite bands, each stacked with some extra special guest appearances (the event promises Jennifer Castle, Andre Ethier of The Deadly Snakes, Dallas Good of The Sadies, Briå of FRIGS, Matt Mason of Anagram, Michelle McAdorey of Crash Vegas, Nick Kervin of Mimico, Scott Harwood, Richard Gibson of B17, Jake Koffman, Kritty Uranowski and more). It's not at the Silver Dollar, sadly, but this still promises to be a rather memorable night.
