Concert Listings Roundup #297

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:

Raven Chacon mini-fest, Night 1 (feat. Array Ensemble) / The Music Gallery @ 918 Bathurst 2019-04-12 (Friday) [FB event]

Raven Chacon mini-fest, Night 2 (feat. Laura Ortman/Cheryl l'Hirondelle/Carmina Escobar/Suzanne Kite / c_RL) / The Music Gallery @ 918 Bathurst 2019-04-13 (Saturday) [FB event]

Raven Chacon mini-fest, Night 3 (feat. Raven Chacon / Olivia Shortt) / The Music Gallery @ 918 Bathurst 2019-04-14 (Sunday) [FB event]

Sort of the springtime antipode to fall's Avant X in the Music Gallery's season, this "mini-festival" sees three nights devoted to the work of Raven Chacon, examining parallel paths in composed/chamber music as well as noisier experimental/improvised sounds (such as those he creates in Postcommodity). That means there'll be a wide swath of interesting locals joining in the proceedings, ranging from the Array Ensemble examining the former realm and c_RL the latter.
