SUNDAY  Wax Mannequin Bunt Mäkkelä Sarah Good

Mäkkelä is from Finland but tours Germany a lot. That’s where I met him. We played a show there in the basement of a spooky movie theatre. Then we went on a romp about the streets of Nürnberg, plucking broken clay shingles of the roofs of old churches. His folk songs are sombre and political. We have a bunch of shows together next month because he’s over for a big visit. I figure we could play all kinds of music and hang out. That’s what I say anyway. Really great. Also, I think Bunt are just super and they are up for hanging around too. The music will end early so if you need to bugger off to get up for something, that’s fine. I’d rather you just stay out till the salty hours and get debauched with us though. Either way I’d like to see you and catch in my awkward/sincere way. It’s a good idea. Great, neat tunes. Really neat times to make music and just hang around.

Super News: Sarah Good has been added to the bill. She will be play her fantastic songs.

Wednesday David Simard & GlassEYElashes – Sep 21 at This Ain’t Hollywood

On September 21st, David Simard comes to Hamilton for the release of his sophomore full-length, The Heavy Wait, with a four piece band & an opening set by G l a s s E Y E l a s h e s !

10$

https://davidsimard.ca/
https://davidsimard.bandcamp.com/album/the-heavy-wait

The lyrical and musical makeup of The Heavy Wait is an effortless combination of gilded European elegance and small-town noir. Simard and his band recorded most of the album in a charged, live-off-the-floor session in Arcade Fire’s old “Petite Eglise” studio. They dug in hard and deep to produce a quiet intensity so palpable and persistent that the album builds in strength with each passing track. Waves of horns and lap steel guitar, sparsely placed piano, and haunting clarinet lines, recorded later in Vancouver, rush to complement the live performances. “The Heavy Wait” was the band’s chosen mantra during that first session and it persisted until the final note was captured.

Born in a small fishing village in northern British Columbia, David Simard has always imbued his work with a sense of space and a hint of nostalgia. Simard’s arrangements evoke the landscapes he’s studied and lived in, while his lyrics intimately relate the stories of characters met and imagined, along with more than a few of his own experiences.

catl.bandcamp.com

Matty Simpson Band
Matty has been playing the guitar for as long as anyone can remember. Since joining his first band when he was in grade 6 to travelling the world with the Fred Eaglesmith Travelling Show, Matty has become an incredibly versatile guitarist.

From an early age, Matty has had an appreciation for good music, growing up listening to artists such as Bob Dylan, Leonard Cohen, Neil Young, Van Morrison, The Band and many others. This has had a profound impact on his current songwriting style, which can be said to sound like 60s rock/folk – the Band meets the Black Keys meets Willie P. Bennett.

The Handsome Devils
Rev. Jon Goold was struck down by blinding light one night after an evening of drunkenness and debauchery. He then heard a benevolent voice tell him that he was to start the greatest old-timey country western band that no one has ever heard of, and that he should recruit his foolish wife and brothers to join him in this fruitless endeavor. Thus the Handsome Devils were born.

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.

BLISSCO (featuring Brandon Bliss of Monster Truck and Greg Brisco) 8pm doors/AN EVENING FOR KERRY GRAY./ROUGH FRANCIS with THE GREAT MACHINE (8pm)/ BEATS & VISIONS III – ARTCRAWL AFTERPARTY/ BIG RUDE JAKE (9pm)

Tuesday Bliss Co. A night of Jerry Garcia

Brandon Bliss & Greg Brisco present Bliss Co. A night of love for Jerry Garcia

Featuring DJ Aerlie Wild.

Door: $10.00

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!!!
