SuperCrawl is Coming!

So hold on to your hats because supercrawl is coming! Now in case you didn’t know Supercrawl is a free, yup free, music festival going on the weekend of the 11-14th (sept2014). The idea was to highlight music and art but on a grander scale. The organizers took artcrawl and basically added music/big bands/sponsorship etc to the mix and this resulted in a explosion of people coming to downtown Hamilton and realizing its not scary and people can do stuff here. (Live start a business,etc)

The whole list of music bands are —–

Antibalas
Arkells
Ben Somer
Bry Webb
Canadian Winter
Charles Bradley
DJ Spinn
Dead Tired
Eight And A Half
Four Tet
