/Welcome to the Future/169/Livestreams and new releases 02-Apr 2021

Bandcamp Friday has rolled around again, so there’s yet again a ton of music to cover. In addition, I’ve overhauled the events page in a big way, so see the link further down for that. Livestreams and waiting for new releases seem to be the order of the day, for now, still, so I continue to wrap up both.

/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.

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.

/amodelofcontrol.com/next week
/Tuesday Ten/449 will come next week, as well as a couple of new interviews (with LONESAW and Terminal) once I’ve transcribed them – there will be another to follow the week after. Life is really busy at the moment so finding the time to write more otherwise is difficult.

Also coming up this week is /A Certain Shade of Green/002/Nu-Metal and Alt club classics tonight and /Breadcrumb Trail/002/A Post-rock livestream on Tuesday. The upcoming livestreams from /amodelofcontrol.com can always be found here, too.
