Concert Listings Roundup #165

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:

7th Annual Toronto Bicycle Music Festival (feat. Jason Collett / Lido Pimienta / Nhapitapi / Moon Runners / Annabelle Chvostek / YUKA vs Heavyweights Brass Band / Girls Rock Camp Toronto alumni) / Evergreen Brick Works to Prairie Drive Park 2016-09-10 (Saturday – free! family friendly! mobile concert! pedal powered!) [FB event]

Who says summer is over? And who says there's no second chances to catch up some some summer's greatest hits? Anyone who attended the recent Feast in the East at Prairie Drive Park now knows it's a lovely green space just at the edge of Scarborough, and anyone who was on the Island for Camp Wavelength's late night sets knows that Nhapitapi were the festival's late-night groove champions. Add in a variety of other music flavours and this is a pretty awesome free show. For bicyclists, the action starts at the Brick Works and involves a communal ride with music and other fun to Prairie Drive Park; for everyone else, the park is just a few minutes walk from Victoria Park subway.
