Concert Listings Roundup #156

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:

Feast In The East 58 (feat. Doomsquad with Not The Wind, Not The Flag / Isla Craig / Pantayo) / Prairie Drive Park 2016-07-09 (Saturday – outside! free! all ages!) [FB event]

This is one of those mind-bending, head-shaking summer weeks where the sheer amount of stuff going on in the city is truly perplexing. There's a veritable heap of awesome shows, making it tough to just put one thing here. But out of it all, I'm probably most excited to hop on the subway to Scarborough to celebrate this free outdoor show being put together by Feast in The East. This show is a part of the TAF's Arts in the Parks initiative, bringing cool events to green spaces all across the city and spreading culture beyond the normal downtown cloisters.
