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

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.

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.

Tuesday Hello Cat Piano

WEDNESDAY KING PARROT with CHILD BITE & PROFANER – 8pm

 

Genra : HEAVY.THRASH.GRIND.PUNK.METAL
King Parrot’s new offering ‘Dead Set’ lays waste to the senses with high-octane grind, thrashing riffs, pummelling beats and punk rock mayhem. Produced by the legendary Philip H. Anselmo (Pantera, Down, Superjoint Ritual) at Nodferatu’s Lair studio in Louisiana, ‘Dead Set’ is a relentless aural assault proving that somehow the band show no signs of wear and tear following a brutal touring schedule through Asia, North America, Europe and Australia since their inception in 2011.

Leading off with the hilarious ‘Like a Rat’ video filmed at Anselmo’s ranch during the recording process, and the creeping ‘Home Is Where The Gutter Is’ video filmed by long time video producer for the band Dan Farmer, Dead Set is a more mature but equally as brutal record to its predecessor. Growth and solidarity is something the band have focused on in the last 12 months, and the results from ‘Dead Set’ are a testament to the bands commitment.

A huge Australian tour to launch the new record with sold out shows in capital cities around the country has cemented King Parrot’s name as one of the top handful of Australian extreme metal bands. Their hell-raising live show, full of energy, ferocity and hilarity, confronts and entertains audiences alike. Drawing influence primarily from the thrash, grind, hardcore and punk scenes of the 80’s and 90’s, a new sound has been created fusing those styles and attitudes with a fresh approach that encapsulates their aggression, humour and intensity seamlessly. Catch King Parrot touring worldwide throughout 2015 and 2016.

SUNDAY SCREAMING FEMALES (8pm)

Screaming Females’ seven years as a band, four full-length albums and 700 globe-spanning live shows has made them difficult to miss. Through it all, the New Brunswick, New Jersey trio have continued to exude a frenetic energy which is built upon the zeitgeist of America’s punk and indie underground yet has always remained forward-looking. Fittingly, for Screaming Females’ 5th album ‘Ugly’, the band enlisted legendary recording engineer Steve Albini, famed for his unique ability to capture the ferociousness of a live performance while delivering gorgeous sonic clarity. The album’s 14 tracks reaffirm the touchstones of the band; they can still shred and front-woman Marissa Paternoster can still unleash a powerful howl. But it doesn’t end there. The album ushers in new explorations for the band, a truly remarkable feat considering their already prolific output. ‘Ugly’ has the perfect combination of raw energy and honed musicianship that produces the type of rock & roll which is still a force to be reckoned with.

HELLO CAT PIANO OPEN STAGE (9pm) / Isotopes with Barbed WIRE Braces & RADAR Hate – 8pm/JOHN OTWAY with special guest Chris Birkett & DJ Aerlie Wild/Summer Throwdown with The Funk Underground x Canadian Winter (w/ The Snow Beach Players)

Tuesday Hello Cat Piano

Wednesday Isotopes with Barbed WIRE Braces & RADAR Hate – 8pm

Isotopes are the world’s greatest baseball punk band.

Since taking the Canadian Punk League by storm in 2006 and delivering a string of clutch singles, the Isotopes have garnered a reputation as wily and relentless underdogs. Pioneers of the baseball punk genre, the club’s gritty, no-bargain brand of 100% juice-injected baseball-themed punkrock has earned them faithful legions of fans and Juiceheads worldwide.

In 2012, after more than 20 line-up changes, the Isotopes finally hit their stride, filling out a full road schedule including a Canadian tour with Off With Their Heads, appearances at Ottawa Explosion and PouzzaFest, and chalking up Ws at home VS legends like the Queers, Hanson Brothers, Zeroes, Methadones, Teenage Bottlerocket, Chixdiggit, Pennywise, Swingin’ Utters, Agent Orange and Richie Ramone. It was the club’s first .500 season and 2013 was on course for a repeat, when the ‘Topes were hit with a season – and possibly career-ending blow that saw Evan October and Dallas Duststorm ejected and banned from the USA for touring without green cards.

Down in the count but never out, the original bad boys of summer took 2014 to dust off and rebuild, releasing a singles compilation, The First Four Seasons on 643 Records and Red Scare Industries, and inking a deal with Canadian heavy-hitter, Stomp Records to release their debut full length in what projects to be a contending 2015 campaign.

Speed: check. Guts: check. Steroids, chicks, God shout-outs, Espanol: check, check, check, check. Evan October and his all-star Isotopes line-up featuring Trevor Uppercutz of Nervous Talk on drums, Vlad Zak of The Real McKenzies on bass, and a special pinch vocal appearance by hall-of-famer, Blag Dahlia of The Dwarves, are back to deliver hit after hit of pure baseball punk gold on Nuclear Strikezone. With more pop than George Brett’s Louisville Slugger, and a tip of the cap to punk legends like the Adolescents, Dickies, Buzzcocks, and of course – the Ramones, Nuclear Strikezone hammers the Isotopes’ classic old-school pop punk sound, and gives Juiceheads world-wide a new soundtrack for socking dingers all season long.
Barbed Wire Braces
Mid tempo to fast, old school punk based in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada.

Friday JOHN OTWAY with special guest Chris Birkett & DJ Aerlie Wild

Bio : John Otway is an English singer-songwriter, who built an audience through extensive touring, a surreal sense of humour and an underdog persona.

Arriving on the back of punk rock and a gymnastic performance on The Old Grey Whistle Test, his first single, the half-spoken love song “Really Free” reached number 27 in the UK Singles Chart. It would be his greatest success for some time. The song earned him a five album deal with Polydor Records, who viewed him as a punk rather than merely an eccentric.[1] His first album, recorded with Wild Willy Barrett, was produced by Pete Townshend but sold only fitfully. The follow-up singles fared no better despite some imaginative promotion, which included an offer for Otway to come to a buyer’s house and perform the single if their copy was one of the few from which the vocal had been omitted. Otway’s and Barrett’s only other UK chart success came in July 1980 with “DK 50-80”, a modest #45 hit.

When Otway turned solo, his audience remained loyal despite poor record sales, and perhaps because of the possibility of physical injury during renditions of songs such as “Headbutts”. When his music career faltered, the resourceful Otway diversified by co-authoring a play, Verbal Diary. He created a role for himself playing a disorganized, likable twit, and by playing himself to perfection, he found other work playing the same character in commercials on the television.

His 1990 autobiography, Cor Baby, That’s Really Me (subtitled Rock and Roll’s Greatest Failure) was a study in self-deprecation, and his touring continued to sustain him. Within weeks the book outsold almost all of his albums. In 1992 Otway appeared at GuilFest. In 1993 he was able to draw 2,500 fans to a gig in London and, in 1998, 4,000 celebrated his birthday with him at the Royal Albert Hall, coinciding with the release of Premature Adulation, his first album of new material for over ten years.

By then, Otway had realised he could use his fanbase, who were in on the joke, to engage in minor publicity stunts. A grassroots campaign saw his “Beware of the Flowers Cause I’m Sure They’re Going to Get You Yeah” voted the seventh greatest lyric of all time in a BBC poll. In 2002, when asked what he wanted for his 50th birthday, he requested “a second hit”. A concerted drive, including a poll (scrutinised by the Electoral Reform Society) to select the track, saw “Bunsen Burner” — with music sampled from the Trammps song “Disco Inferno” and lyrics devised to help his daughter with her chemistry homework — reach number nine in the UK Singles Chart on 6 October, and earned Otway an appearance on Top Of The Pops, BBC Television’s flagship popular music programme. To encourage fans to buy more than one copy each of the single, he released three different versions. The flip-side of “Bunsen Burner — The Hit Mix” was a cover of “The House of the Rising Sun” recorded at Abbey Road Studios and featuring 900 of his fans on backing vocals, each of whom was credited by name on the single’s sleeve. Thanks to this second hit he has now been able to release his Greatest Hits album. Commenting on the fact that the title of this album is now in the plural, Otway said that he was very proud of it, having “finally got it (the ‘s’) on the right side of Hit”.

Otway currently tours as a solo act; as a duo with Richard Holgarth; and often with his Big Band which includes Murray Torkildsen, Seymour, Adam Batterbee and guest keyboard player Barry Upton. Throughout 2005 and 2006 Otway teamed up with The Hamsters and Wilko Johnson as part of The Mad, the Bad & the Dangerous tour. A DVD of the tour was released in 2007.

He delivers occasional (humorous) lectures on the theme, “Making success out of failure”.

Otway now has a motorcycle club of fans called Beware of the Flowers MCC.
