Concert Listings Roundup #195

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:

Jonathan Adjemian [Adequacies album release!] (IC/JC/VC) / The Tranzac (Southern Cross Lounge) 2017-04-14 (Friday – early!) [FB event]

Jonathan Adjemian will be celebrating Adequacies, a new album of solo piano pieces at this early show, and besides his set, the night will feature a too-rare set of vocal improvisations from Isla Craig, Jennifer Castle, and Victoria Cheong. Oh, also: "there will be pink cookies shaped like hippos."
