Concert Listings Roundup #43

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:

DIANA presents DIG DEEP (feat. Matt "Doc" Dunn / ASMR buds [Colin Fisher/Felicity Williams/Robin Dann] / DIANA / Jennifer Castle) / The Drake Underground 2014-05-08 (Thursday) [FB event]

After a whole lotta touring behind their Perpetual Surrender album, synth-rockers DIANA are looking for some new challenges. That might explain their pair of shows this week at The Drake Underground that will tap into two different vibes, including their "most opiated performance ever" on Thursday (with a lineup filled with MFS faves) and a nearly-as-enticing "pure dance set" on Friday (including performances from Ice Cream the awesome vogue crew House of Monroe).
