Concert Listings Roundup #254

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:

TONE Festival/Wavelength present (feat. Efrim Manuel Menuck / FET.NAT / Fresh Snow / Scattered Clouds) / Jam Factory 2018-06-15 (Friday – all ages!) [FB event]

TONE Festival (feat. The Revival Ensemble / Sick Boss Löve) / The Tranzac (Main Hall) 2018-06-17 (Sunday) [FB event]

It's hard not to single out TONE again, with each week offering more variety and surprises. Besides being damn good music, there might not be much a throughline connecting Friday's Wavelength co-curated weird/rock extravaganza and Sunday's jazzier excursion, but both are highly recommended — especially if you've never seen FET.NAT performing in a sweaty room. Sunday's Revival Ensemble show, with Ted Crosby's site-specific big-band re-interpreting Duke Ellington's Far East Suite might not have an eye-catching international touring headliner like some of the other shows, but it's one of the festival's most ambitious offerings and is definitely not to be missed.
