Concert Listings Roundup #70

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:

DDL 5th Anniversary Weekend: Night One (feat. Corpusse / Tenderness / Processor) / Double Double Land 2014-11-13 (Thursday) [FB event]

DDL 5th Anniversary Weekend: Night Two (feat. Surinam / Prince Nifty / Man Made Hill / Tradition) / Double Double Land 2014-11-14 (Friday) [FB event]

DDL 5th Anniversary Weekend: Night Three (feat. The Space Lady / Carl Didur / New Chance) / Double Double Land 2014-11-15 (Saturday) [FB event]

DIY venues come and DIY venues disappear — sometimes within a matter of weeks or months, it seems — so it's truly worth celebrating one that has now lingered for a half-decade. Double Double Land might get a little warm and it might get a little crowded at times, but geez I've seen a helluva lot of good stuff there. A real community hub, it has hosted everything from the freakiest rave nights to the deepest listening parties — and there's something ineffably cool about going down that alley, up that stairway, and smelling that fresh bread smell. This celebration is itself noteworthy, with three fantastic gigs over the weekend. Thank-you DDL for existing.
