Concert Listings Roundup #229

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:

Venus Fest Winter Solstice Celebration (feat. Jennifer Castle / Aisha Sasha John / Ora Cogan) / The Garrison 2017-12-21 (Thursday) [FB event]

Born at the end of the year, Jennifer Castle has always had an affinity for the Winter Solstice, usually celebrating it with what turns out to be the last awesome show of the year. Fresh off playing Massey Hall (!) expect her next album's songs to be in the spotlight here. This year's event is presented in association with Venus Fest's ongoing concert series and is strictly not to be missed.
