/Welcome to the Future /245 /Events, Livestreams and New Releases 05-May 2023

Back from Whitby, and the usual Friday update to cover (it’s also Bandcamp Friday again today).

In addition, my heart goes out to a long-time friend of this site, Sean Payne of Cyanotic, who lost his wife and is in hospital in Chicago himself this week after a car accident. You can help him out with the inevitable medical expenses here.

This post is a roundup of (relevant to this site) new and upcoming music, a nod to upcoming events and livestreams both from this website and others and also a catchup of what I’ve posted recently. Thanks to everyone who sends me new music and events, keeps me up to speed, and indeed simply reads these posts.

/Upcoming Compilations, Live Albums, Reissues

None this week.

/Upcoming/Livestreams/Gigs/Club Nights/Events

Obviously, things change at short notice right now, and I’m updating events as they are postponed or cancelled, and also including relevant Livestreams as they are announced.

/amodelofcontrol.com continues to maintain an events calendar, but it has now moved to /amodelofcontrol.com/events – and is now a dynamic, searchable database, and you can add individual events to your own calendars. I’m currently fixing a couple of minor backend issues, so new events may not be added promptly, or be added sporadically.

If you have updates, relevant events for me, or want to tell me about something else, use the contact details above. It goes without saying that any gig or club still in the listing is subject to change at short notice, or may not happen at all.
