Concert Listings Roundup #26

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:

The Ryan Driver Sextet / Array Space 2014-01-10 + 2014-01-11 (Friday + Saturday) [more info]

The soft-spoken Ryan Driver is not very much of a big self-promoter and phrases like "songwriter's songwriter" sound a bit like backhanded praise. But there's good reason to be quietly excited as these two nights (with two sets each!) at the lovely Array Space give one of the city's best a chance to celebrate the release of the new double album The Ryan Driver Quintet Plays The Stephen Parkinson Songbook. (The keen-eyed will note that the group has expanded since the album was recorded.)
