Concert Listings Roundup #306

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:

TONE Festival & Cramzac Present (feat. Lotte Anker / Silvia Tarozzi/Dan Pencer/Phil Melanson/Germaine Liu) / The Tranzac (Southern Cross Lounge) 2019-06-11 (Tuesday) [FB event]

TONE Festival & Riparian Acoustics Present (feat. Beverly Glenn-Copeland & Indigo Rising / Dustiny) / The Jam Factory 2019-06-12 (Wednesday – all ages!) [FB event]

Not to be redundant, but the TONE festival hits the sweet spot again this week. Some intriguing visitors are at The Tranzac on Tuesday, with Copenhagen-based Danish saxophonist Lotte Anker playing a solo set while violinist Silvia Tarozzi is joined by top locals Dan Pencer, Phil Melanson and Germaine Liu. And then, if you need a soul pick-me-up, be prepared to get some spiritual uplift from Beverly Glenn-Copeland, bringing not only some unique synth-based songcraft but the most energizing banter and stage presence felt in these parts for some time.
