Concert Listings Roundup #170

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:

DAS RAD [final show!] (Surinam / Traitrs / Alpha Strategy) / The Baby G 2016-10-15 (Saturday) [FB event]

This biggest event of the week is definitely the Music Gallery's X Avant festival, but seeing as that's going to be getting a post of its own to preview all the goodness, in this space let's highlight this going-away party. DAS RAD put out a couple ace releases but I'll remember them as one of the city's most exciting live acts, with Bo Frantz sacrificing his body to conquer both floor and ceiling while never letting a song slip entirely out of control. Very tasty supporting cast as well, so this one's not to be missed.
