Concert Listings Roundup #284

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:

Picastro [LP Release!] (Fresh Snow / Colin Fisher) / The Baby G 2019-01-12 (Saturday) [FB event]

An excellent night from Burn Down The Capital sees some big names marking their return from quieter times, most notably Picastro who are celebrating the release of their new album Exit. The current version of the band, with Liz Hysen joined by Nick Storring, Germaine Liu, and Matthew Ramalo (all staples of the city's improvised music scenes!) can transport the listener to some eerie places while generating a surprising groove to bolster Hysen's oft-fragile song structures. Meanwhile, it's a treat to see instru-barnburners Fresh Snow back in action and Colin Fisher is promising some solo ambient guitar in the style of last year's V Le Pape album.
