Concert Listings Roundup #255

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:

Fake Humans [LP release!] (Blisk / Mark Hundevad) / The Tranzac (Main Hall) 2018-06-23 (Saturday) [FB event]

Isla Craig [The Becoming Pleasance Records album release!] (Eiyn Sof) / The Tranzac 2018-06-24 (Sunday) [FB event]

Back-to-back release shows in the Tranzac's Main Hall by some of this blog's fave musicians? That's a little piece of heaven in my estimation. I've been waiting for both of these albums to make their ways out into the world for awhile now, and while album release shows sometimes feel more like the end of an era than the beginning of one, hopefully these platters will make it possible for more people to get caught up with some of Toronto's finest.
