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 —–

Ben Somer
Bry Webb

Supercrawl to Hit Downtown Hamilton with Ohbijou, Hidden Cameras
9/29/2009 By Stephen Carlick

It’s not every day that Hamilton, ON hosts an art and music festival, but it does every month apparently. Every second Friday of each month the art galleries, artists and musicians of downtown Hamilton and the surrounding area launch new exhibitions as part of the James Street North Art Crawl, while patrons of the arts from near and far are encouraged to visit and take part in the festivities.

On October 9, James Street North will celebrate the monthly success of Art Crawl by closing down between Cannon and Wilson streets to allow artists and patrons to participate in what has been aptly titled Supercrawl.

The free event will allow Exclaim!-approved acts Ohbijou and the Hidden Cameras to perform block-party style, along with a pile of other groups. The bands will play from 7 to 11 p.m., after which several separate after-parties will begin.

There will be a grand total of four stages (three outdoors and one hosted indoors) that will feature bands from both Hamilton and around the province. Local restaurants will participate by bringing their food to the event, while the Hamilton Food Share will be running a food drive for charity.

Here’s a list of all the bands playing the event:
