Concert Listings Roundup #253

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:

Bernice [album release!] / The Drake Underground 2018-06-06 (Wednesday) [FB event]

Consider the slow unfolding of a flower blooming in a stop-motion capture, and reflect on the ongoing emergence/steady transformation of Bernice en route to Puff, their long-awaited second album. Promising "extremely fun surprises", expect some quiet astonishment and moments of joy to radiate throught the room.
