Concert Listings Roundup #148

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:

Doomsquad [Total Time release party!] (feat. LIDS / RONiiA) / Smiling Buddha 2016-05-14 (Saturday) [FB event]

Very exciting to see a new album from these dancefloor groove-ritualists / psychonautic innerspace explorers, and packed into the Buddha (along with LIDS' lumbering grooves) this should be a righteously-sweaty celebration — and a chance to examine how the Blumas siblings' live band sounds now that it's been enhanced with an additional pair of twin brothers.
