Concert Listings Roundup #239

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:

Man Made Hill [Fingertip Pleasence Records release show!] (Corpusse / New Chance / ZOË) / The Baby G 2018-03-03 (Saturday) [FB event]

Since decamping to Hamilton, Man Made Hill shows have been thinner on the ground in these parts, which makes this album release celebration even more of an event. Expect Randy Gagne's squiggle-slop funk to both explode into high-kicking glory and implode into weird loverman crooning. Superb support on the bill as well — top to bottom, not a show to be missed.

This week's noteworthy shows:
