Concert Listings Roundup #126

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:

Hoover Party [Another Bankrupt Hapsburg Legacy digital album release] (Karen Ng & Brodie West / Matthew A. Dunn / Amelia Ehrhardt / Victoria Cheong) / Array Space 2015-12-09 (Wednesday) [FB event]

Jonathan Adjemian has been making drones (not drones) as Hoover Party for a while now, and is celebrating the release of the new Another Bankrupt Hapsburg Legacy with a series of "extended and reinvented collaborative versions of tracks from the album" with a fab series of special guests. The night also promises a dance by Alicia Grant, and the album will be available as a "download code / limited-edition baked good combo".
