Concert Listings Roundup #54

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:

Backyard Afternoon (feat. HVYWTR / Heather Segger & Doug Tielli / Isla Craig / Prince Nifty) / Tibet Kitchen 2014-07-27 (Sunday – Matineé! PWYC!) [FB event]

The gorgeous back patio vibes at Parkdale's Tibet Kitchen were a delightful surprise at Healing Power's first afternoon show there last summer. Sheltered under mature trees and colourful banners, the space radiates tranquility. Add in some cool music and this is a can't-miss proposition. PWYC and all ages.
