Concert Listings Roundup #262

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:

Track Could Bend #41 (feat. Debashis Sinha / Luyos MC / No Seas) / Wenona Lodge 2018-08-07 (Tuesday – PWYC!) [FB event]

Shaking off the long weekend doldrums, there's entirely too much going this week, so once again there's hard choices to be made (Thursday, for example, has no fewer than three excellent shows going down, and the weekend is pretty jam-packed, including excellent African music throughout at Harbourfront's Habari Festival) but in the summer rush of it all, take care not to miss the modest pleasures, like Tuesday's stacked bill at Track Could Bend. Settling into the cozy basement digs at Wenona Lodge, expect a variety of flavours, from Alexei Orechin's ambient/noise for tapes'n'guitar, to Luyos MC's soft power kulintang fusions to Debashis Sinha's electroacoustic investigations.
