Concert Listings Roundup #10

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.

Gigs of the week:

Not the Wind, Not the Flag (Forget the Times / Matt "Doc" Dunn) / The Tranzac (Main Hall) 2013-09-17 (Tuesday) [FB event]

Healing Power album release party, good vibes, and music from some of the city's finest improvisers. If you've never seen NTW,NTF in action, this is a great time to get on board with one of the best bands in T.O.

Bloor Ossington Folk Festival (Saturday feat. Julie Doiron / Pick A Piper / Memoryhouse / Sandman VC / Grand Analog / Minotaurs / Alex Lukashevsky and Sunday feat. Lemon Bucket Orchestra / The Golden Dogs / Bidiniband / catl / The Schomberg Fair / Ken Whiteley / Beams) / Christie Pits Park 2013-09-21/22 (Saturday/Sunday) [FB event – Sat/Sun]

Now in its third year, the community-minded BOFF brings together a tasty variety of music. There's a full weekend of smaller, late-night shows in various venues worth checking out, but the cream of the crop is at the (free, all-ages) main stage in Christie Pits.
