Concert Listings Roundup #76

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:

A Ryan Driver Quintet / The Tranzac (Southern Cross Lounge) 2014-12-26 (Friday) [FB event]

The keen eye might note that this gig is billed as a Ryan Driver Quintet, not the Ryan Driver Quintet. This Boxing Day special lists Driver as being joined by Rob Clutton, Michael Davidson, Blake Howard and "special guest" Stephen Parkinson. The group's languid approach to standards old and new is sure to be an oasis away from the hurlyburly and a fine chance for a post-xmas moment of decompression.

This week's noteworthy shows:

The Taste / Holy Oak Café 2014-12-27 (Saturday) [FB event]

What's in the Box 2014 – Night 2 (feat. Lay These Knight / The Meligrove Band / Seas / International Zombies of Love) / The Drake Underground 2014-12-27 (Saturday) [FB event]

Arthur Bull/Bob Vespaziani/Arnd Jurgensen / The Tranzac (Southern Cross Lounge) 2015-12-28 (Sunday – early!)

Mirrors / The Tranzac (Southern Cross Lounge) 2015-12-28 (Sunday)
