Concert Listings Roundup #125

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:

Silent Shout Festival (feat. Lydia Ainsworth / Ben Gunning / Lockbox / Hush Pup) / Smiling Buddha 2015-12-04 (Friday) [FB event]

Silent Shout Festival (feat. Phèdre / JOOJ / Scott Hardware / New Chance) / Smiling Buddha 2015-12-05 (Saturday) [FB event]

The good folks at Silent Shout took some time away from live music curation, but they are returning with a big splash to celebrate their five-year anniversary. Their ecumenical vision of electronic music means that the two nights are pretty diverse, and both shows are rather stacked — including several faves from around these parts. Also not to be missed are two new musical reincarnations from familiar faces, including Laura Barrett's Lockbox and Scott Harwood's post Ken Park reformulation as Scott Hardware.

Community corner:

  • Youth in Toronto Music: Trends, Barriers and Experiences. Youth make up one of the biggest and most enthusiastic groups of music enthusiasts, but do they have the corresponding means to control and shape their own participation? On Thursday, Demo Magazine and Wavelength are co-presenting a panel discussion on youth perspectives on the local music scene at Hart House's Arbor Room. The event is free and should serve as a chance for the contingent of former youth to listen to and support the next wave of musicians, programmers and fans.
