Concert Listings Roundup #282

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.

Gigs of the week:

Cosmic Homeostasis IX (feat. Paul Newman / Ronnie Blake / Del Stephen / Mkl32 / Liz Lima / Heraclitus Akimbo / more TBA) / The Tranzac (Southern Cross Lounge) 2018-12-30 (Sunday – afternoon set, 3 to 5 p.m.!) [FB event]

The Titillators / The Tranzac (Southern Cross Lounge) 2018-12-30 (Sunday – early!) [FB event]

SynapticCircusSundays (feat. Nightmare Alley [Liz Hysen/Kurt Newman] / mkl32 and Mira Martin-Gray) / The Tranzac (Southern Cross Lounge) 2018-12-30 (Sunday) [FB event]

I'[m spending Sunday at The Tramzac, and I'm inviting you to join me! Full disclosure: I had a hand in organizing the first and last of these shows, but they're good stuff if you like calming daytime drones or slightly-alarming evening noises. There's also the historical fifth show by local jazz whistlers The Titillators — and word on the street is that there's still some copies of their tasty tape available! In a generally-quiet week for shows, The Tranzac is really the place to be, with hang-worthy shows on Thursday, Friday and Saturday as well!
