Concert Listings Roundup #179

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:

Odonis Odonis (Doomsquad / Vallens) / The Garrison 2016-12-16 (Friday) [FB event]

Sweet salvation for musical locavores, this is an excellent triple-header with all sort of different vibes, mixing OO's dissonent electo-industrial downerism with Doomsquad's collective-consciousness groove uplift. Oh, and one of the best guitar rock bands in the city opening things up. Essential night.
