Concert Listings Roundup #157

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:

Live on the Patio (feat. Daniel Nebiat) / Roy Thomson Hall Patio 2016-07-14 (Thursday – free! outside! early show, sets @ 6:30 and 8:00 p.m.!) [more info]

Live on the Patio (feat. Hampaté & Sahel Blues) / Roy Thomson Hall Patio 2016-07-15 (Friday – free! outside! early show, sets @ 6:30 and 8:00 p.m.!) [more info]

The free summer concert series on the patio beside Roy Thomspon Hall not only enlivens a concrete pond that's an often-overlooked space right in the heart of the city, but also offers a casual zone to encounter some new sounds. There's a couple different flavours of African music on hand this week, with local krar master (and damn fine groove-pop creator) Daniel Nebiat on Thursday and Senegalese/Sahel rhythms on Friday.

Community corner:

  • It might not be the most comfortable thing to ask ourselves who isn't at the shows we put on or attend, but it's something we have to confront if we're serious about equity. This week's essential reading is from Michael Rancic and examines some of the issues around physical access to venues. Especially in the low-recource DIY side of things, accessibility is most often an afterthought, so we should start asking what can be done at a structural level to change this.
