Concert Listings Roundup #57

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:

Wavelength 611: Endless Summer Mini-Festival (feat. Comet Control / Mexican Slang / Steve Shiffman & The Land Of No / JFM / New Horizzzons / Alpha Strategy / Hiawatha / Delta Will) / Vintage & Flea Outdoor Market 2014-08-16 (Saturday) [FB event]

This weekend just gone by would have been ALL CAPS if last year's festival hadn't been the final one. While there's an island-sized hole in my heart that may some day yet be filled, it's good to see that Wavelength is still celebrating the summer with an all-day outdoor show. Promised as ALL DAY / ALL AGES / 10 BANDS / 10 BUCKS, there's a promise of "not just live music, but also live video games by the Hand Eye Society, projections and art installations, plus food, drink and vintage clothing and goods for sale." Sounds like a solid way to spend a Saturday.
