Concert Listings Roundup #129

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:

Nite Comfort 29 (feat. Cares / Slocum) / Handlebar 2016-01-03 (Sunday) [FB event]

Some folks treat the start as a new year as a beacon to house-bound hibernation, but even as things slow down a bit the regular rhythm of the city's shows ticks along, including Nite Comfort, bringing dark ambience and synth-noise to Handlebar on the first Sunday of the month. This is no time to rest!

Bandcamp corner:

  • Zacht Automaat started the year with an album release and dropped their covers tape in the summer, so it's exciting to see them complete the 2015 hat trick with More Down Than Out. Hunker down for winter with one of the city's best bands!
