Concert Listings Roundup #186

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:

Lina Allemano Four (Titanium Riot) / The Tranzac (Southern Cross Lounge) 2017-01-31 (Tuesday) [FB event]

It's always a rare treat to see both of these projects led by trumpeter Lina Allemano on the same night — and with Allemano spending more time over in Europe these days, one can't be sure when the chance will come up again. Grab it now, and hang out at The Tranzac on Tuesday night — come for the Four's melodic/jazzy excursions, stay for the Riot's sci-fi topographical fieldtrips.
