Concert Listings Roundup #103

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:

No Angels Dancing / The Tranzac (Southern Cross Lounge) 2015-07-05 (Sunday – afternoon show! 1 to 3 p.m.!)

I've been a frequent advocate this alternative to Sunday brunch right from the get-go. An example of the sort of thing that the Tranzac can incubate when an artist is given a regular timeslot and a chance to let things develop at their own pace, No Angels Dancing has gelled into something with its own distinct sound, merging Allison Cameron's toy factory electroacoustic bricolage, Stephen Parkinson's patiently recursive guitar scratchings and D. Alex Meeks' watchmaker drumkit ratatat. Billed as "our last trio performance together for an unknown period", there'll be new and surely pleasant recombinations on the horizon, but if you've wanted a chance to witness the "classic" No Angels Dancing, you should make a point of coming out for this.
