Concert Listings Roundup #267

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:

FASTER presents (feat. Carl Ludwig Hübsch/Pierre-Yves Martel/Philip Zoubek / Magiceyeimage) / Gerrard Art Space 2018-09-15 (Saturday) [FB event]

Zacht Automaat [Memory of the World L.P. Release!] / Owl's Club 2018-09-15 (Saturday – PWYC!) [FB event]

After a quieter ease-into-September week of gigs to start the month, things are reliably starting to pick up once more, leading to an intensely-exciting weekend packed full of cool shows. Way too much to see on Saturday, including an exciting Feast in the East, but for this week I'm going to spotlight two other gigs in somewhat off-kilter spaces. Owl's Club has become familiar to local show-goers, filling in the gap as it does for medium-small venues and it should be an apt spot to celebrate Zacht Automaat's new album, which is arriving on vinyl no less. Meanwhile, across town, FASTER are continuing their series at Gerrard Art Space, bringing a wide variety of creative music to the east end. This night, including the ever-more-quiet Magiceyeimage, should reward eyes-closed careful listening.
