Concert Listings Roundup #271

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:

X AVANT XIII (feat. Tasman Richardson / See Monsters / CreeAsian) / The Music Gallery @ 918 Bathurst 2018-10-11 (Thursday) [FB event]

X AVANT XIII (feat. Maria Chavez / Geronimo Inutiq / respectfulchild) / The Music Gallery @ 918 Bathurst 2018-10-12 (Friday) [FB event]

X AVANT XIII (feat. Los Poetas [CD release!] / Above Top Secret / Ziibiwan) / The Music Gallery @ 918 Bathurst 2018-10-13 (Saturday) [FB event]

X AVANT XIII (feat. Narcy / Jennifer Kreisberg / Lillian Allen) / The Music Gallery @ 918 Bathurst 2018-10-14 (Sunday) [FB event]

No surprise here, as the Music Gallery continues to push and blur boundaries at its annual festival. Subtitled The Halluci Nation, and curated by A Tribe Called Red's Bear Witness, the festival weaves together strands from the past to present a narrative of resistance to support a future of bolder community-building and sound experimenting. There are plenty highlights over four nights of concerts, and two daytime spin-off events as well, including the Saturday's "Sampler Cafe" and Sunday's "Building The Halluci Nation" Panel Discussion.

Community corner:

  • Track Could Bend has found a friendly and cozy home at Wenona Lodge, and I'm pleased to note that peeps are taking note and getting a chance to use the space as well. So in addition to TCB on the first Tuesday of the month, re-align your mental calendars to include JAOIM ("jazz and otherwise improvised musics"), a new series curated by Andrew Furlong, on the second Tuesday of the month. And if that weren't enough, Karen Ng is booking the third Tuesdays, with a first show including sets from the Lowell Whitty 4 and Jacob Gorzhaltsan Group. Please show your support for these excellent initiatives!
  • Meanwhile, The Dupe Shop is once more showing its fun-lovin' bonds to the community with a celebration of Cassette Store Day this Saturday afternoon (October 13th), including snacks and deals and a mixtape exchange party.
