Concert Listings Roundup #111

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:

Camp Wavelength (feat. Holy Fuck / Doldrums / Dirty Frigs / Kurt Marble / Zoo Owl / Above Top Secret / Allegories / RAVETAPES) / Artscape Gibraltar Point 2015-08-28 (Friday) [FB event]

Camp Wavelength (feat. The Wooden Sky / Moon King / Prince Rama / Doomsquad / LIDS / Blonde Elvis / Slow Down Molasses / Etiquette / Most People / Digits / Kidstreet / Mar Aberto SoundSystem) / Artscape Gibraltar Point 2015-08-29 (Saturday) [FB event]

Camp Wavelength (feat. Do Make Say Think / The Weather Station / Loscil / Pierre Kwenders / Avec le soleil sortant de sa bouche / Anamai / Scattered Clouds / JOYFULTALK) / Artscape Gibraltar Point 2015-08-30 (Sunday) [FB event]

Picking up the mantle of the beloved ALL CAPS! island excursions, Wavelength returns in force to the Gibraltar Point for a fairly packed weekend. The offerings range from big-name headliners to aspiring up-and-comers (and even a few bands like Moon King, making their return as the former after making a nascent appearance as the latter).

After several summers on the island, Wavelength has figured out how to run a festival with professional flow and slickness but without most of the alienating corporate cattle-pen mentality. This year also sees more bands jammed in than previously attempted, with "late night" sets (and a corresponding late-night ferry service, which tends to involve some end-of-night hurry-up-and-wait panic). There's also the whole camping element, if you're into that sort of thing, and all sorts of art and activities beyond the music. A highly-anticipated end-of-summer celebration of Toronto culture.
