Tuesday THIS AIN’T THE OPEN JAM

 

WEDNESDAY BEAMS with PROOF of Ghosts (8pm)

Beams
Every decade or so, a band comes along that perfectly reflects Toronto’s never-ending quest to honour the legacy of its musical past while breaking new artistic ground. In 2015, that band is Beams. For the past two years, the sound of Beams’ two female voices in harmony, combined with banjo, mandolin, lap steel guitar and singing saw, has carved a niche within Toronto’s alternative folk scene. Now, with its new two-song single, The Gutters and The Glass, Beams has fully tapped into its unlimited potential.

As a true collective, the seven-piece ensemble’s sound brings together elements of country, bluegrass, folk, and avant garde to create music that echoes long-dead Appalachian voices while bravely injecting that spirit into 21st century pop. With the writing of co-front woman Anna Mernieks as its foundation, Beams pushes the boundaries of tradition, at the same time allowing each member space to contribute their distinctive voices toward a greater end. With The Gutters and The Glass, those results are well beyond anything Beams has conceived up to now.

On their own, each song — “The Way We Run” and “Black Shadow” — takes the approach Beams’ employed on its acclaimed 2013 debut album, the Peter J. Moore-produced Just Rivers, to a different level of sonic sophistication, with the array of voices and instrumentation beautifully balanced, and each note perfectly placed. It’s what a great single has always been and should always be—approximately seven completely captivating minutes.

Fittingly, the story behind the making of The Gutters and The Glass embodies the band’s artistic intent. In the fall of 2013, drummer Mike Duffield heard that John McEntire was relocating his SOMA Electronic Music Studio in Chicago. The news prompted Duffield to contact McEntire (known best for his work with Tortoise and The Sea & Cake) to see if it was still possible to schedule a session. Beams managed to secure two days just after the New Year, convinced a Chicago friend to put them up at his apartment, and spent the remaining funds on a van for the daunting mid-winter drive.

The Gutters and The Glass comes barely a year after Beams’ formal arrival in May 2013 with Just Rivers. In her four-star review, NOW’s Julia LeConte described the initial offering as “an album that never repeats itself and is full of unexpected nods and surprise turns – bluegrassy one minute (okay, many minutes), nodding to ‘60s Britrock the next.”

One listen to The Gutters and The Glass will confirm that view and then some. With this single, Beams has set a high standard for its next recording venture, but after this experience, they are sure to live up to it. Enjoy these two songs for the gorgeous documents of two whirlwind days in Chicago that they are, but know that there is also much more to come.

Proof of Ghosts is going to take you home down country roads. Proof of Ghosts is pure pop perfection. Proof of Ghosts is going to tear your crying heart from your throat.

WEDNESDAY  AN EVENING FOR KERRY GRAY.

An Evening For Kerry Gray

Featuring Simply Hip (a tribute to Tragically Hip) and Rose Garland (a tribute to The Grateful Dead)

Long time Hamilton Radio Morning Host Kerry Gray is battling cancer. Kerry was travelling through Tennessee to Florida this past spring to take on a new career opportunity when he got into a car accident. He was brought to the local hospital where they ran some tests. They found multiple tumors on his brain and a spot on his liver. Others have been found since.

After a lengthy stay in Tennessee, Kerry was transferred home to Minnesota to The Mayo Clinic. The doctors in charge of his care would only transfer him home with medical transport. Being between jobs, Kerry has no health insurance coverage.

The purpose of this night is to raise money to help cover Kerry’s trip home and the balance of his stay in Tennessee.

Kerry is currently in good spirits & his treatment continues. As always, he is fighting the good fight.

We are hoping to raise enough funds to relieve pressure for his outstanding medical bills so he can focus solely on continuing that fight.

We look forward to a Great Evening For Kerry Gray!!!

AUG 20 The Retroaction (Record Release Party) Ft. Detour And The Lost Angelos @THESAINTTWEETS @the_retroaction

 CLICK HERE FOR DETAILS AUG 20 The Retroaction (Record Release Party) Ft. Detour And The Lost Angelos at This Ain’t Hollywood.

“The Retroaction are able to distill the essence of classic rock n’ roll through the lens of modern experience. Not satisfied in being a mere throwback, they are able to expand on each other’s inherent influences. There’s precision in the imperfections. There’s momentum in the raw energy.”

Adam Bentley – Auteur Research, Catherine North Studio (Worked with artists such as Arkells and The Dirty Nil)

The Retroaction is an Old-School Garage Rock four piece from Hamilton Ontario. Being at one of their shows feels like you’ve time traveled to an era where people danced their hearts out with the band, and the music was incredibly energetic and fun. Recently the band was nominated for two Hamilton Music Awards and won Local Group of the year by Peoples Choice.The band consists of Keith Moffat, Ron Lang, Charles Kostash, and Thomas Duxbury.

Watch their stunningly original interactive 360 music video for “Little Strange” here:

THURSDAY  SATE with ASTRAL WITCH (8pm)

Genre: Bluesy Raunch & Soul meets Dirty Rock & Roll
Rock and roll fans, SATE knows your desires and she is prepared to give you more than you can handle.
With her trademark black lips and platinum Mohawk, the Toronto vocalist and songwriter leads a dynamic band combining blistering hard rock with gritty funk. The empowering messages embedded in her music, and her soul-shaking live show, have quickly built SATE’s reputation as an artist impossible to ignore. Even Canada’s national daily newspaper, the Globe & Mail, declared her full-length debut album, RedBlack&Blue one of 2016’s most anticipated releases.

The build up to RedBlack&Blue has been underway for over a year, starting with a hugely successful Pledgemusic campaign that helped produce three digital-only independent EPs. RedBlack&Blue was then compiled from what donors chose as their favourite 10 tracks from these releases. Among the standout songs are the potent first taste, “Warrior,” and the hard driving single “What Did I Do,” the video for which premiered exclusively at Ebony.com.

It only takes seeing SATE in concert once to feel the impact of everything she represents. Toronto’s NOW Magazine described her as having “a tornado of a stage presence,” while Lithium’s live reviewer proclaimed, “I can tell you sincerely that she is one of the most resounding artists I’ve heard.” When each show inevitably reaches its climax with the indelible image of SATE, fist in the air, and an entire audience raising its hands in unity, the full spectrum of human emotions—anger, joy, vulnerability—suddenly comes into sharp focus through the music.
RedBlack&Blue is the natural result of that live experience, and the culmination of a lifetime spent fully immersed in music of all forms and shades. As the daughter of Canadian blues and jazz pioneer Salome Bey, SATE learned at the feet of countless music legends that passed through Toronto during her childhood. She soon found her own voice by adding the sounds and attitudes of punk and hard rock that shaped her own identity and set her upon her journey.

That journey is in fact only just beginning. The release of RedBlack&Blue will finally introduce SATE to a wider world clamoring for new voices to pick up the torch passed down from our rapidly disappearing rock and roll elders. SATE was born to bear that responsibility, and in the end, everyone will be sated.

SATURDAY WEIRD LINES with ADRIAN TEACHER, JON McKIEL & DAN EDMONDS 9pm

Weird Lines release their debut, self-titled album on Friday, July 08, 2016. The band embarks on an Eastern Canadian tour in support of the record, which is available via the newly minted Sappy Futures Ltd. label.

Weird Lines also premiere a new single from the debut album today. Listen to the crunchy offering, “Between The Lamppost (You And I),” HERE or below.

LISTEN: Weird Lines – “Between The Lamppost (You and I)”

https://soundcloud.com/matt-21-1/weird-lines-02-between-the-lamppost

It seems apt that Weird Lines infuse lyrics about sunnier days on their debut LP: “You asked for twin summers / It was all you ever wanted / It was all you ever needed” sings C.L. McLaughlin on “Twin Summers.” Coupled with the unmistakable voice of Julie Doiron, the subtle timbres of Jon McKiel, the adventurous saxophone of Chris Meaney, and the jukebox beats of James Anderson, the summer theme permeates the eight-track album, both in style and content.

Whether on the doo-wop progressions of “One Fell Swoop,” the anthemic chime of “Fade In My Heart,” the hazy ocean sway of “Malibu,” or the careening drive of “Summer Can,” these are songs started around fire and muddled swamp water, drawing influences from 50s pop, 90s distortion, and a little magic in Sackville, New Brunswick.

Though there are certainly sweet moments to be found, Weird Lines is, however, far from saccharine. True to the Sappy motif, beneath the oft-invoked sugary sheen is an enduring legacy of raw and emotive songwriting coupled with an affinity for big guitars (“Between The Lamppost (You And I)”), caustic introspection (“Bother To Be Bothered”), and – as described by Giller Prize winning author Sean Michaels – “grim whimsy” (“There Are Never Too Many Matches”).
Praise for Weird Lines:

“I’ll be honest: I can’t see anything. Just a throng of silhouettes, horizontal lights. Weird Lines are somewhere among all that. Maybe they have a dead body back there. Instead of an autopsy it’s grim whimsy: a muddle of bass and horns, trundling drums and two pal’s twin voices. This band was born to cover ‘Hang On Sloopy.’ But they don’t.”
– Sean Michaels, Scotiabank Giller Prize Winner

“Weird Lines felt compelled to take us on a dynamic trip. They went from stomping rockers to makeshift ballads, letting their rickety frames collapse onto themselves so they might reconstruct them with krazy glue. A sax player wailed so hard that Jennifer Castle, watching Weird Lines, could only describe the whole set as ‘saxophonous.'”
– Vish Khanna, Exclaim!

“Almost every new band on the East Coast sounds like fucking Mac Demarco and it’s getting unbearable. Like, he’s good or whatever but I’m tired of people buying that same pedal for their riffs too. This is really nothing like it.”
– Lucas Hicks, Creative Director – SappyFest

Tuesday Hello Cat Piano

WEDNESDAY THE SCENICS with LONG BRANCH – 8pm

“It wasn’t so much that The Scenics were ahead of their time in 1977, it’s more that almost everybody else didn’t even know what time it was. The Scenics were on top of it though, grabbing the freedom promised by punk’s first blush… New York had Talking Heads, and England was blessed with XTC, but here was their equal in Toronto and they never got the necessary push and support. It’s fabulous we finally have the evidence, but it’s a drag we haven’t been able to enjoy it the past 30 years.”
Bob Mersereau, author of the “the Top 100 Canadian Albums”

“The Scenics hit the road for 7 shows supporting the June 17 USA LP/CD release of “In The Summer” from Light in the Attic Records.”

ABOUT THE FILM SACRED WATERFALL
Sacred waterfall is a an experimental no budget film, created over the span of three years in Hamilton Ontario by a group of artists inspired to explore and capture the essence of the waterfalls of the Hamilton, while to honor the sacredness of water and these incredible landmarks. The film takes the waterfalls into another world through the of star beings extraterrestrials perspective, taking the viewer on both a visually stimulating and also transcendental ride. Our intention behind the film was to create a story to be interpreted by the audience while having a deep symbolic message to pass onto the subconscious. Our goal was to bring some of the inaccessible waterfalls of Hamilton to the viewer in a interesting thought provoking way, while also bringing awareness of aliens and the deep importance of water and how we are all interconnected.

THURSDAY  THOMAS ST CLAIR, TIMID THE BRAVE, GARETH INKSTER – 8pm

Thomas St. Clair plays country & folk music. His debut record “As The Crow Flies” has claw-hammer banjos, pedal steel and double-stop fiddles that recall AM radio greats of the past like Willie and Gram.

And his dedication to the origins of the genre have not gone unnoticed. He and his band “The Scared Crows” have already shared the stage with Daniel Romano, Doug Paisley and Del Barber, fellow members of the new guard, of old-time country. Their live show swings from the lilt of heartbreaking ballads to four on the floor honky-tonk shuffles, sometimes even within the same song.
