Concert Listings Roundup #123

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:

Michelle McAdorey Band [Into Her Future record release party!] / Monarch Tavern 2015-11-18 (Wednesday) [FB event]

Lots of tough choices to be made this week, and this top recommendation could just as easily have gone to Monday's Gravitons 10th anniversary show, Thursday's Presencia or the two-night psych spectacle of the Night Owl Festival. You should dig into those below, but I think the one I'm anticipating the most is the celebration for long-awaited release of Michelle McAdorey's Into Her Future. Finely-crafted songs with deep roots and the soulful contemplation that comes with the urgent patience of moving through life.
