Concert Listings Roundup #63

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.

Gigs of the week:

Jennifer Castle [Pink City release celebration!] (Eric Chenaux / HVYWTR) / The Great Hall 2014-09-25 (Thursday) [more info]

Brandee Younger (Dr. Matthew Dunn and Co.) / The Music Gallery 2014-09-26 (Friday) [FB event]

Two shows that are surely worth invoking that overused trope: "spiritual". Jen Castle has been playing some of the songs on her brand-new Pink City pretty much since her last album came out, but now we can hear them on record in a fully-developed, beautifully-arranged form. As a bonus, local guitar hero (and now Parisian expat) Eric Chenaux is back in town for a while, and will be opening things up.

Meanwhile, Friday sees things get deep at the Music Gallery, with afro-futurist harp player Brandee Younger making her local debut, pushing the legacy of Dorothy Ashby and Alice Coltrane in fresh, contemporary directions. Key clincher: that night will be opened by Matt "Doc" Dunn, celebrating his All Is album in a rare full band show featuring Kieran Adams, Jonathan Adjemian, Carl Didur, Mike Smith and Brandon Valdivia.
