Concert Listings Roundup #178

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:

Track Could Bend #21 (feat. No Parking / Heather Saumer / Del Stephen & The Bedroom Refuge Holiday) / Dundas Video 2016-12-06 (Tuesday – PWYC!) [FB event]

There's actually an overwhelming number of really cool shows this week, and to be honest, this one's only getting the top-listed honours as it's pretty much the only night where I'm not conflicted about which of two or three things I'll end up at. I'm also looking forward to it because there's a whole bunch of cool folks coming out to play, and (even less that usual!) I'm not really sure what anyone's gonna be doing. Unexpected music from excellent people! (And as always, making this a reasonable option for anyone who's got somewhere to be on Wednesday morning, we'll be wrapped up by eleven o'clock.)

  • Come out and celebrate mutant Canadian Culture on Sunday afternoon at the launch of Heavy Metalloid Music, the authorized biography of Simply Saucer written by eminent local music head Jesse Locke. (Locke apparently has gotten on with the band well enough that he's now filling in on drums with them!) The event will feature a musical performance by Simply Saucer lead singer/guitarist Edgar Breau and a discussion of the book with Jesse Locke and Sam Sutherland (author of Perfect Youth: The Birth of Canadian Punk). 2 o'clock at the Monarch, no cover.
