Concert Listings Roundup #280

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:

Winter Bingo (feat. Bernice / Kith & Kin) / Lula Lounge 2018-12-16 (Sunday) [FB event]

You may or may not know that I'm not that into xmas or all the seasonal "stuff", so when I do recommend something with a holiday angle, y'know it's going to be pretty good. Bernice are going to play a "once in a lifetime set", celebrating their past holiday-themed songs (an annual tradition now in its fifth year) including a new one. And Kith & Kin are taking this year off from their large-scale Wassail at the Music Gallery, so this could be your only shot to hear three of the city's most wonderful voices joining together with friends. Plus: the titular "winter bingo", hosted by Alex Samaras and also special surprise guests!
