Concert Listings Roundup #248

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:

Feast in the East: 7-Year Anniversary (feat. Gary Wilson / Omhouse / Bernice / Cindy Lee) / Jam Factory 2018-05-05 (Saturday – all ages!) [FB event]

Feast in the East's anniversary is a huge cause for celebration — you wouldn't even have to look at who's playing to know you oughtta be there. But the fact that the show includes a performance by the cult underground freak-funk legend Gary Wilson, as well as a preview of Bernice's upcoming album relase celebration makes it a can't-miss.
