Concert Listings Roundup #258

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:

H.W.G. Showcase (feat. Tata Chris/Jim Benbow/{AN} EeL / Sandy Ewen/Kurt Newman/Paul Newman / Sound of the Mountain & Bim Prongs) / The Tranzac (Southern Cross Lounge) 2018-07-14 (Saturday – early!) [FB event]

This town's been a little less strange since Neal D. Retke (who howls/drones/records/collaborates as {AN} EeL) has left for greener pastures. This showcase — absurdly packed with awesomeness for an early show at The Tranzac — is the spawn of last year's Eclec~Tic~Toc Fest that was pulled together when mounting a full-scale follow-up proved unfeasable in the current tough environment for DIY culture. So instead, come and celebrate {AN} EeL's birthday with this night of strange sounds and unique collaborations.
