Concert Listings Roundup #245

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:

Collateral [Sam Shalabi/Norman Adams/Tim Crofts] (Nicole Rampersaud) / Array Space 2018-04-12 (Thursday) [FB event]

Given the economics of making creative music in this country, we don't get a chance to see out-of-town peers to our local scene as much as we should. Sam Shalabi was in T.O. not that long ago at the centre of his big-band Land of Kush ensemble at the Aga Khan Museum, but Norman Adams (cello) and Tim Crofts (piano) — both stalwarts of the Halifax creative music scene — don't make it out this way as often. Together, they're celebrating a just-released trio album. Nicole Rampersuad's solo trumpet (quite possibly with feedback bursts) will welcome them on behalf of the local side.
