Concert Listings Roundup #117

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:

Bodies That Matter [EP release party!] (Zones / Mimico / Beard Closet) / Ratio 2015-10-09 (Friday) [FB event]

Quite exciting to see Ian McPhedran's post-Ostrich Tuning solo project releasing EP Glorify! Glorify! Glorify! with this sit-down night of drone'n'noise at Ratio. There's an ace lineup of like-minded friends and comrades rounding out the bill, too.

Community Corner:

  • This year's edition of the 416 Toronto Creative Improvisers Festival is coming up at The Tranzac November 4 to 7. (listings included above) The shows are PWYC, and give audiences a chance to see a vital cross-section of music from T.O.'s thriving creative/improvised scenes. To try and enhance the artists' compensation, the festival has launched a crowdfunding campaign — please consider contributing if you are able, and do remember to block the dates off in your calendar!
