Concert Listings Roundup #166

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.

Gigs of the week:

Bloor Ossington Folk Festival (feat. Motherhood / Little You Little Me / The Wilderness of Manitoba / Steve Lambke / catl / Bidiniband / Hooded Fang / Julie Doiron and the Wrong Guys) / Christie Pits Park 2016-09-17 (Saturday – free!) [FB event]

Bloor Ossington Folk Festival (feat. The Idaho Stop / Bart / Wax Mannequin / Eamon McGrath / Will Kidman / By Divine Right / The Highest Order / The Cosmic Range / Bry Webb & the Providers) / Christie Pits Park 2016-09-18 (Sunday – free!) [FB event]

I've been a fan of the Bloor Ossington Folk Festival since it was a series of shows in cafés and people's living rooms. As the festival grew, it never lost focus on its local roots and DIY, neighbourhood feel. That makes the news that this will be the final edition a bit sad, but the festival (stripped back to its Christie Pits beer garden and stripping away its mainstage) is going out with a greatest-hits roll-call of sorts, celebrating some of the musicians who have made past years such special experiences. Two great days of music, and still free for everyone.
