Concert Listings Roundup #349

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.

Special note:

For the past six-and-a-half years, I've faithfully been cranking out these listings every Monday. Because of the unprecedented situation we now find ourselves in, this week's listings remain blank. Stay safe and sheltered.

Community corner:

  • After being forced to cancel the remaining events in its season, the Music Gallery has pivoted to find new ways to support artists and engage with its community. The Music Gallery at Home series begins tonight with David Dacks in conversation with Nilan Perera, the first of several interviews taking the ethos of their History Series. The music events are built around Xuan Ye's score-app "Even a Blind Squirrel Finds a Nut Once in a While", which will be interpreted by a series of musicians, leading off this week with Germaine Liu. [customary disclosure: I am a member of the MG's Artistic Advisory Council.]

Bandcamp corner:

  • M. Joakim's Saturn City continues her series of synth EP's based on single-take recordings with no multi-tracking or editing. This time out she explores Pan, Saturn's innermost moon, with a quartet of typically tasty probes.
  • After a series of demo-ish duo sketches that laid out some song ideas, The Archives of Eternity have presented an ensemble album that lives up to their incendiary live shows. Formed in the model of a classic jazz combo, the multi-generational band features percussive titans Mark Hundevad (vibes) and Mike Gennaro (percussion) alongside Patrick Smith (tenor sax) and Andrew Furlong (double bass) playing with plenty belly-fire.
