Concert Listings Roundup #37

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:

Stripmall Ballads (Flood & Pass / The Living Daylight Stringband) / Holy Oak Café 2014-03-30 (Sunday) [FB event]

A lot of fine shows this week, but this takes the prize for its intimate and unique nature. Simone Schmidt (Fiver/The Highest Order) joins forces with American songwriter Phillips (who performs as Stripmall Ballads) to share some new collaborations that the pair are heading into the studio to record.
