Concert Listings Roundup #46

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:

Audiopollination 18.3 (feat. Chris Adriaanse/John Oswald/John Kamevaar / Bea Labikova/Raphael Roter/Michael Snow/Paul Dutton / CCMC) / Array Space 2014-05-31 (Saturday) [FB event]

That lineup might look like a jumble of names, but the simple takeaway is this: free-improv legends CCMC will close out the night, and the various members thereof will also split up for additional improvisations in the opening sets. And, as always, "creative bonanza" Audiopollination will feature the live visual improvisations of John Creson and Adam Rosen.
