Concert Listings Roundup #194

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:

Emergents III (feat. Castle If / Laura Swankey) / The Music Gallery 2017-04-07 (Friday) [FB event]

I've been a fan of the Music Gallery's Emergents series for several years now, so it was a real rush when I was asked to curate one of this year's instalments. This show features two different approaches to musical experimentation, matching Castle If's plant-kingdom synthtopia with Laura Swankey's vocal journeys. I'm hoping this will be a sonic treat for Music Gallery regulars... and for those who don't get out there too often, a chance to experience a show in one of the city's best venues.

Bandcamp corner:

  • D'you ever do that thing where you're layering the end of an Ann Southam piece into the start of a Sade song.. and then you keep overlapping more and more of it until you might as well call it a mashup?
