Concert Listings Roundup #261

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:

Witch Prophet (Future Peers / VERSA / Inner Touch) / The Commons Space 2018-08-02 (Thursday) [FB event]

I have fond memories of this Little Italy space that was formerly home to the Whippersnapper Gallery, so it's cool to see some music returning there. This night promises to be a multimedia experience — and not only with VERSA's visual music, but also from installations and other sensory delights. And best of all is a set from Witch Prophet, currently riding high in the wake of her excellent solo album dropping a couple months back.
