Concert Listings Roundup #278

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:

Emergents I (feat. Grace Scheele / Xuan Ye) / The Music Gallery @ 918 Bathurst 2018-12-02 (Sunday – all ages!) [FB event]

The first of this season's Emergents Series shows — always an excellent destination to discover new sonic approaches — features the first offering from new series curator Sara Constant. This night includes Grace Scheele's electroacoustic re-imagining of the harp, as well as the interdisciplinary force of Xuan Ye — who should be well known to this blog's readers as a badass rock'n'roller, social-media sonifier, piano deconstructionist and more – "manipulating electronics to turn the Great Hall of 918 Bathurst, as well as its adjacent Sun Room, into changing, interactive sound installations."
