Concert Listings Roundup #154

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:

Solonation (feat. Heidi Chan / Kayla Grant / Aki Takahashi / Nicole Rampersaud / Xuan Ye) / Array Space 2016-06-25 (Saturday) [FB event]

This new endeavour, curated by Audiopollination's Michael Lynn, presents a night of dynamic sets of solo improvised music. The five performers — including some perennial MFS faves — cover a range of musical practices from layered meditations to noisy invasions. And if you want to explore some experimental music in the comfort of your own home, you can still support the artists, as an advance ticket will also give you access to a live stream of the show.
