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
Canadian Winter
Charles Bradley
DJ Spinn
Dead Tired
Eight And A Half
Four Tet
Hamilton Children’s Choir
Hamilton Leithauser
Hamilton Youth Steel Orchestra
Harlan Pepper
How To Dress Well
Jeremy Fisher
Jessy Lanza
Kevin Drew
Lee Reed
Live How You Live
Lori Yates
Naomi Shelton And The Gospel Queens
Norman Foote
Oh Susanna
Sarah Neufeld
Scratcha DVA
Shout Out Out Out
TURKEY Rhubarb
Teenage Head
Terra Lightfoot
The Beaches
The Dirty Nil
The Strangers
The Sugarman 3
Thought Beneath Film
Tongue Fu


Some Highlights I feel are Jesse Lanza and Charley Bradley andalso if you can afford it A Tribe Called Red
Please check the start times as a lot of good bands are playing super early, not sure why?
CBC has a good listing of the visual portion  a highlight will be Dan Drever and the regular galleries will be open too!

And here’s a treat from a hometown hero

The Art Gallery of Hamilton presents its annual film series, for all those of us unlucky enough not to be in Toronto for TIFF, this is a nice alternative.

Also one of the best things this year is it matches up perfectly with SUPERCRAWL!!!!! Check out all the performances with a ton of local musicians! (Jeremy Greenspan of  Junior Boys, Canadian Winter,etc etc)

I don’t know what city they filmed this video in but it kinda reminds me of downtown Hamilton…..

Oh and a last minuter reminder Supercrawl is coming……
