Concert Listings Roundup #243

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:

Nite Comfort 55 (feat. Uxvae / Saturn City) / Handlebar 2018-04-01 (Sunday – PWYC!) [FB event]

This month's Nite Comfort sees new-ish projects from familiar faces — and should also make for a satisfying contrast in their approaches to "electronic" music. Uxvae mixes Martha Adem and Bryan W. Bray (Gates, Cetacea) in a dark, dangling-vine forest of gothy ambiance, while Saturn City is a new solo endeavour from Processor's M. Joakim — her recent Korg Etudes collection is really excellent stuff that I'm looking hearing to hearing in a live setting.
