Listening Woman Heads Out on “Take it to the Next Trek” Tour!


Think of a drunken toddler swaying down Mass Ave to the hectic compositions of Miles Davis; or an eccentric underground carnival on acid. Or hell, a techno fueled plane crash even. All would be relate-able descriptions of Boston, Mass’ Listening Woman for anyone who’s ever had the pleasure of witnessing the anomalous music collective. One part performance art, two parts music, and ten parts wildl weirdness, Listening Woman slaps its viewers with jagged and jarring, aggressive yet calm, noisy, often atonal blasts of multi-instrumental porridge that is best served hot, sweaty, and in close proximity. Really, this is a band that should be seen live. Sure, you can get a feel listening to their recordings, or better yet, watching a video of them performing live. But really, the only way to truly appreciate the otherworldly, beautifully choreographed insanity of an LW set is to be there. So boy oh boy do we have good news for you non-Bostonians. The group is hitting the road for the rest of August and first part of September to bring the weird to your city! If you want a taste of the incredible avant-garde, freaky renaissance happening in the Bay State right now, there’s nowhere better to start than Listening Woman. Tour started last night in Buffalo, NY and continues tonight in Kalamazoo with stops all over the Midwest in Wisconsin, Minnesota, and Indiana before climbing back up the East coast by way of Georgia, Tennessee, Virginia, and the rest of New England culminating in the triumphant return of leader Katie McShane’s monthly fem night at the Midway Cafe in JP. Please put your phones down for a second and listen closely. Do.not.miss.out.on.this.tour! Come on out, support traveling Boston artists, and soak in all the operatic sonic regurgitation. It’ll be a show you won’t soon forget.
