Concert Listings Roundup #288

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: Mechanical Forest Sound's 10th Anniversary Celebration (feat. The Allison Cameron Band [Allison Cameron / Thom Gill / Kurt Newman] / Lender [Christine Duncan / Laura Swankey (music) / Nilan Perera / D. Alex Meeks] / The Knot [Tilman Lewis / Nick Storring]) / Array Space 2019-02-10 (Sunday) [FB event]

This blog became a thing on Friday, February 13th, 2009 (though there was a certain amount of pre-planning before that) so it would seem amiss to not mark the occasion somehow. The first set of celebrations (with more to come!) celebrates the city's creative music scenes, with three sets from some seriously heavy hitters. I'm pleased to have wrangled a too-rare appearance from the "new" AC band (with Thom Gill + Kurt Newman) as well as a return-to-action from the recently-quiet cello duo The Knot. And then, in improvised music tradition, I made up the rest, mixing together four great players into one unpredictable band. It should be a night of great music, and there will also be snacks. (Did I mention the snacks?)
