Concert Listings Roundup #58

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:

Optical Sounds Presents: U.S. INVASION! (feat. The Veldt / Magic Shoppe / The Highest Order / B-17) / CineCycle 2014-08-23 (Saturday) [FB event]

An Optical Sounds party is always a special occasion, but this one even more with the long-awaited visit from a couple psych-allies from south of the border. The home side is represented by two fab units as well. This is very much the sort of thing you should willingly head down a darkened alley to investigate.
