Concert Listings Roundup #189

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:

Century Palm [King Of John St. LP release party!] (Vallens / MOON EYED) / Monarch Tavern 2017-03-02 (Thursday) [FB event]

A pretty fine night to grab a cheesebag and celebrate the first full length from this stylishly-moody local new wave combo; also a great chance to catch Vallens again, who just happen to be in a really special zone right now.
