Concert Listings Roundup #279

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:

Somewhere There presents (feat. Black Givre / Kee Avil / Laura Swankey / Patrick O'Reilly) / Wenona Lodge 2018-12-03 (Monday) [FB event]

A superb mix of locals and Montréal peeps playing a variety of solo styles at this show in the cozy basement at Wenona Lodge. When Vicki Mettler brought her Kee Avil project to town earlier in the year, her loop-based avant-song styles were already razor-sharp, so several more months on the road might have rendered it other-worldly — catch her close up now before her big gig opening for Marc Ribot next year. Meanwhile, on the local side, here's a rare chance to hear Patrick O'Reilly playing on his own, and another opportunity to spend time in Laura Swakney's vocal garden.
