Concert Listings Roundup #260

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:

Goosebump [LP Release!] (Chandra / Persons) / Lula Lounge 2018-07-26 (Thursday) [FB event]

As Germaphobes give way to Goosebump, the songwriting relationship between Paul Erlichman and Neil Rankin continues to evolve and mutate — the most recent fruits of which is the Goosebump by Goosebump LP. That's worthy of being celebrated with a party at the stately Lula Lounge on Thursday. Besides a chance to check in with the band's post Fiji Whizz refreshments, the night also offers another chance to catch the Chandra band, with a team of local weird-rock all-stars backing former child/art star Chandra Oppenheim in a joyful groove marathon.
