Monday Roundup #5

In the absence of concert listings, my regular Monday dispatches have fallen off. After bringing some life to the blog with the "bumping into" series, I figure I should get back in the groove. I'm guessing that this will be a bit like what used to get shoved into the end of the post when I was doing listings — some bandcamp suggestions, nods to a few livestreams, and sundry community notes (email me if you have anything that needs broadcast in the latter category!). Plus maybe a look back through the MFS archives.

Bring me my cake!

  • Once more, it's time to celebrate MFS' blogiversary, though I almost feel like the past year hardly happened, or should count for blog-age purposes. (And, for that matter, the fun of the 10th Aniiversary celebrations two years ago still feels really close at hand!) In these times, the future of so many things remains uncertain, but I guess one should still mark twelve years of doing a thing with some manner of curt nod to oneself.

Livestream nation:

  • Double feature at the Music Gallery on Saturday night, with sounds and visions from Ami Dang and Gudiya commencing at 7 p.m. The night "will showcase the intricacies of Dang's experimental effected sitar techniques with synthesizers and electronic instruments from South Asia along with Gudiya's original electronic music production and visual collages." As with all of their events this season, the livestream is free and available to all, on facebook or over at the MG's website.

In case you missed it...

  • MFS faves Not The Wind, Not the Flag convened for a special pandemic-at-home performace as part of Bogotá's "Sesiones Bolón de Verde". It's a real shot of spiritual energy to hear Brandon Valdivia and Colin Fisher playing together, and their jam is still up on youtube for your enjoyment:
