In his second year as a comedian, Josol won the Craven A’s Funniest Home Grown Competition for the Montreal Just for Laughs Comedy Festival in 2000. Since then, he has been performing in festivals such as the Winnipeg Comedy Festival, Montreal Just for Laughs Comedy Festival, International Comedy Fest 2k8, the Orange County Comedy Festival, and the LOL Comedy Festival in Hollywood, California.

Indubitably the most recognizable Asian comedian in Canada, Josol was profiled on the Comedy Network, ABS–CBN in Asia, Showtime Dubai, CBC, Discovery Channel, Echo TV, OMNI 1&2, MTV Canada, and recently, the Biography Channel Canada.

He has hosted his own television series on the new OMNI.2 Network called Flip. He produced, co-wrote, and starred as the lead of a short film based on his true story entitled Rolling Longaniza, which aired on the CBC zFlicks. He has written and performed on the MuchMusic hit show Video on Trial and MuchMoreMusic.

Josol has taped numerous stand up comedy specials in his career. He first achieved his own comedy special in 2000, Comedy Now!, on the CTV/Comedy Network. He has been featured in ABS-CBN’s SlantEd Comedy taped at the San Jose Improv and recently recorded two comedy specials produced by Showtime Dubai.

Montreal outfit We Are Wolves are ready to howl, having just announced their next LP. The indie rock trio will deliver their WRONG collection, their first in three years, on September 30 via Fantôme Records.

The record has yet to be detailed in full, but a press release notes that it will arrive equipped with the group’s June-revealed “Wicked Games” single, which is described as possessing “groovy electronic dance rhythms.” The record is likewise expected to continue the band’s evolution by mixing elements of post-punk and electronica.

WRONG is the follow-up to 2013’s La Mort Pop Club, which was the first to feature drummer Pierre-Luc Bégin playing alongside longtime members Alexander Ortiz and Vincent Lévesque. Prior to playing in We Are Wolves, Be?gin had been performing with fellow Montreal act Polipe.

Series -10dB and Strangewaves present:

CCMC

December 1 & 2,
7:30 pm
1280 Main Street West, Hamilton
https://series10db2016.eventbrite.ca/

Series 10 dB is the in-house concert series created by the LIVELab at McMaster University’s Institute for Music and the Mind. Each concert features a brilliant musician and a McMaster researcher in an intimate 100-seat one-of-a-kind research theatre.

Canada’s preeminent non-idiomatic free-improvisation ensemble, world-travelled since the 1970s, today comprises original member Michael Snow (piano, synth), John Oswald (sax), John Kamevaar (percussion, electronics), and Paul Dutton (soundsinging, harmonica). Process takes precedence and form evolves in a shifting tapestry of textures and timbres, dense layerings, meditative calms, and raucous cacophony.

JOHN OSWALD (alto sax). World-famous composer and plunderphonic maestro, Oswald has also maintained a career-long improvisatory focus for over thirty years, both as a saxophonist and a contact dancer. He has performed on four continents and can be heard on dozens of recordings as soloist, featured guest, and band member.

PAUL DUTTON (soundsinging, harmonica). Ranked among the world’s leading exponents of oral sound art, Dutton has toured extensively across the Americas and Europe, and has released five solo sound recordings. One of The Four Horsemen poetry and voice-improv group (1970–88), he has collaborated with Phil Minton, Lee Ranaldo, Jaap Blonk, R. Murray Schafer, and many others.

JOHN KAMEVAAR (percussion, electronics). Sound artist, visual artist, and musician, Kamevaar first played in CCMC in the ’80s and early ’90s, touring internationally and recording with the band. Between 1987 and 1991, he gave concerts and made six recordings with the industrial-ambient-noise trio Kaiser Nietzsche and produced soundtracks for the feature-length art films.

MICHAEL SNOW (piano, synthesizer). A founding member of CCMC, Snow is a world-renowned visual artist with a distinguished parallel career in music. He played in the ’50s with jazz greats like Jimmy Rushing and Cootie Williams, led his own extended improv groups in the’50s and ’60s, still performs solo piano in the U.S., Canada, and Europe, and has issued many recordings.

FRIDAY  Gregory Hoskins & Tina Newlove: Illuminate Me

The Pearl Company
16 Steven St., Hamilton, Ontario L8L 5N3

GREGORY HOSKINS with TINA NEWLOVE: ILLUMINATE ME: A Concert and Live Painting Performance.
Two nights: Thursday / Friday, December 1 & 2: 8:00pm. $25 door.

A concert presentation of songs from acclaimed Canadian recording artist Gregory Hoskins set against a larger-than-life canvas being painted by Tina Newlove and projected over the singer. The evening begins with Hoskins under the stark light of the projected canvas and ends drowning in colour and form. The songs of Hoskins are cool and warm and sorrowful and hopeful all at the same time and the paintings of Newlove are organic and grounded, abstract just enough to make them otherworldly but recognizable. The interactions between painter and singer are unrehearsed and the outcome is unplanned as he makes his way through solo renditions of the songs (with a dose of the “between song asides” he is known for) and Newlove’s projected “Hand of God” applies colour in all its’ drippy mess. The audience gets a taste of the chaos that can lead to form. And that is where the two meet..

Mills Hardware (95 King St. E., Hamilton)
Tickets: $25 (+SC) advance, $32 at the door
http://www.ticketfly.com/event/1275499

Plants and Animals are a Montreal-based trio that began playing together as kids, emerged on the international scene in 2008 and have developed a varied cult following ever since, built this on the shoulders of their self-produced records, their intense live show, or both—depending on who you ask. April 2016’s “Waltzed In From the Rumbling” is their first album in nearly four years. It is Plants and Animals’ most soulful and inventive collection of music yet. Eleven soundtracks for leaps taken, ships sailed, dark water and pink skies.

Here is a Gunnersmith.ca facebook listings of other shows.

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, THE FABULOUS STAINS
Corrine Burns retreats far into plans for her band, The Fabulous Stains, after her mother’s death. So far that she gets them (she and two cousins) on a tour with a washed-out glam-rock group and a rising British punk band, radically changes her appearance, attracts a cult following and national media attention. With luck like this, what could go wrong?Directed by: Lou Adler, 1982 (USA)

RUDE BOY
Rude Boy is a semi-documentary, part character study, part ‘rockumentary’, featuring a British punk band, The Clash. The script includes the story of a fictional fan juxtposed with actual public events of the day, including political demonstrations and Clash concerts. Filmed over a period of years, the written dialog takes on the appearance of improvisation.

THURSDAY Trickbag CD Release Party 8PM

On Thursday November 17th to coincide with the release of their brand new CD “North End Ramble”, Trickbag will be holding a CD release concert at “This Ain’t Hollywood” (345 James Street North, Hamilton). The disc was recorded live at “This Ain’t Hollywood” back in March so it seemed logical to bring the band back there for the official CD release. We plan to have a few special guests drop by to join us on stage for a some musical surprises. Doors open at 8 with the music getting underway at about 8:30. Cover charge is $10. CDs and a limited number of t-shirts will be available for purchase. We’re hoping all our friends and fans will join us to make this special gig especially memorable. See you there.

 

FRIDAY Viletones with Artificial Dissemination & Fleshrag

SATURDAY DAN EDMONDS WITH ZACHERY LUCKY (9pm)

  
Dan Edmonds
Dan Edmonds’ first solo album, Ladies On The Corner, finds the former front man for Hamilton, Ontario roots rockers Harlan Pepper exploring many new facets of his songwriting. Relying on an often spontaneous, lo-fi approach on the record’s eight tracks, Edmonds re-establishes himself as one of Canada’s most dynamic young musical voices. After laying down the basic tracks at his home studio, Edmonds shifted the scene to fellow Hamiltonian Sean Pearson’s Boxcar Sound Recording where additional guitars were added by Wayne Petti (Grey Lands, Cuff The Duke), along with lap steel by Rich Burnett and bass by Tyler Belluz, both members of Bry Webb’s band. Edmonds likens the sessions to a gathering of friends more than anything else, in keeping with the loose vibes of the music.

Its been three long years since Zachary Lucky released his critically aclaimed recording “The Ballad Of Losing You”. Don’t miss Zachary and his band when they role through on November 19 . For more information on Zachary’s upcoming tour dates or the new record visitwww.zacharylucky.com

Music Photography Exhibition by Cormac Figgis

Cormac is a Hamilton based photographer, illustrator and art director from Dublin, Ireland. He has lived and worked in Dublin, London and Amsterdam, and has worked as resident photographer for numerous venues, clubs, promoters and festivals in both Ireland and Europe. He’s photographed many bands and recording artists for PR, editorial and album releases.

He has also worked extensively with performer/composer/producer Daniel Figgis (Virgin Prunes, Princess Tinymeat), performing at Symphony Space on Broadway NY, National Concert Hall Dublin, Wexford Opera, Pearce Museum and RTE.

Asa & Brighid in Hamilton

Asa Berezny & Brighid Fry met in Junior Kindergarten and became best friends. After a couple of years they ended up at different schools and eventually lost touch before re-connecting at a Junior Beekeepers class where they discovered they both had a passion for making music. At 13 years old, they have put out 3 albums between them and play together in the band Kingdom of Birds where Asa is the front woman and songwriter. Brighid has her own solo career (the Toronto Star declared her Toronto’s tween queen of rock) and both girls have played with Joel Gibb as part of The Hidden Cameras.

As inspiring young musicians who are challenging gender stereotypes about girls in music, Brighid and Asa are featured in the new Kinnie Starr produced documentary on women in music called “Play Your Gender” being featured on November 11th at 3:30pm as part of the Hamilton Film Festival. They will be following the screening with a free (pay what you can) show at This Ain’t Hollywood. Doors at 6, music from 6:30-7:30pm.

Kitty (Daytona Beach, FL, fka Kitty Pryde)

$10 in advance, $12 at door

 THURSDAY   New Swears plus TBA (8pm)

Cover Charge TBA

Sammy J Scorpion, Scru Bar, Beej Eh, and Nick Nofun are New Swears, and New Swears are a garage-punk band specializing in melodic horseplay. They come from Ottawa, Canada… more specifically, they come from the Fun Boy Club House, a house in Ottawa they all lived in together with two bars, a mini ramp, a tattoo gun (but no actual tattoo artists), motorcycle tire burnout skids in the form of an inverted cross on the front walkway, rats and squirrels that made enough appearances indoors to be given names, murals everywhere, and a liberal ‘where should I piss?’ policy.

That paragraph right there might be enough to make your average jaded old punk hate them, but their saving grace is that there’s a big difference between try-hard and work-hard. New Swears are definitely the latter.

Despite regularly partying themselves into the emergency room, these dudes have still managed to put out a split tape and two full length LPs; gone on tours of the States, Canada, and Europe; self-released a shocking amount of shocking music videos (that always seem weirdly influenced by boy-band video aesthetics just as much as they are by CKY/Jackass and alcohol); and did it all without breaking anything more serious than legs and arms and TVs and walls, and without pissing off anybody who isn’t a cop or a landlord.

These guys will spend an hour trying to perfectly catapult a bucket onto a head, or flip a dart (that’s a cigarette for any non-working class Canadians out there) perfectly into a mouth until they nail it. The result is something incredibly stupid, that took an unreasonable amount of work and patience, but is surprisingly satisfying to watch happen.

The same goes for their music, it might seem simple, you might get the impression YOU could write songs that catchy and raw, but you can’t, you didn’t, and New Swears out-practiced, out-partied, and out-worked you to get it done. Deal with it.

The band has signed with Dine Alone records and will be releasing the Brand New Spot/Sugar Heavy Metal 7 inch on November 4th. More shows, shenanigans and a full length record will come in 2017.

MNDSGN:
Signed to indie stalwart Stones Throw Records, MNDSGN, is a forward thinking hip-hop producer and songwriter performing live solo with keyboards and vocals..
The growth and evolution of Ringgo Ancheta as Mndsgn is a wonderfully unexpected journey of discovery. Raised in suburban South Jersey, his most formative introductions to the world of creativity came through B-Boying, Gospel church and rap videos. He immersed himself in Fruity Loops as a teen and started creating curious sounds—part rap beats, part electronic experiments. After buzzing locally, he took a chance one-way trip to LA on the strength of the Beat Scene hype and found himself at home in the sun-soaked streets of LA. After years of building community through collaborations and performances, his blissed-out tunes caught the ears of Stones Throw Records. His debut album cemented Mndsgn as a premier producer of the label’s next generation of artists.

He’s since toured the world over, released more than a dozen projects and been a part of countless collaborations. He’s formed Akashik Records with a crew of conspirators, aimed at delivering ultra-curated, hyper-personalized musical offerings to the public. Looking to instill a sense of balance to the listener, harmony remains a central value to Mndsgn’s journey

MNDSGN recently released “Ya Own Way” July 2016:

MNDSGN “Camelblues” video from debut album YAWN ZEN exceeding 1 million views:

ELAQUENT:
Canadian-based producer Elaquent is certainly no rookie in the thriving beat scene. Known for his smooth, soulful style; his off-kilter, neck-break beats; and his obsession with Batman and Sega Genesis, Elaquent is finally beginning to reach his full potential. Elaquent, or “eQ” as he is also known by, has been making his mark on the independent beat scene in a big way over the last few years, with a large discography of well received instrumental albums. Since the ninth grade, eQ has been mastering his production techniques, creating a sound uncommon to the crop of other local producers. Citing J Dilla and DJ Premier as some of his earliest influences, eQ has become much of a fan favorite among beat afficionados in Toronto. After a string of successful releases, including “Believing” , “The Scenic Route” and “Green Apples and Oranges”, eQ has begun to take his show on the road, armed with his trusty SP-404sx loaded full of beats. Having toured all around the United States and many parts of Europe, eQ shows no signs of slowing down. Signed to HW&W Recordings (based out of Los Angeles), the enthusiastic producer is already planning a number of albums, live shows and collaborations. Needless to say, Elaquent is on the come-up.

SATURDAY  Duchess SAYS w/ HSY, SHA BANG BANG & Puke Sasss FamBand!

Cover Charge TBA
Duchess Says
Duchess Says is a Canadian dance punk band that was created in late 2003 in Montreal by four influent members of the Church of Budgerigars who decided to collaborate together in a common musical project. Their goal was to insure a faithful representation of the message of the Duchess (or spiritual budgie) through a precise artistic dialog. Composed of Annie-Claude Deschênes (vox, keytar, guit, programmations), Ismaël (keyboard,guitar, programmations), Phil (guitar, bass,feedbacks) and Simon Says (lo-fi beats, drums and doubtful noises). Duchess Says is serving a repertory of “moog rock” songs strong in images and enormoustly intense live performances! Their musical influences range from no wave, new wave, punk, to cinema and visual arts. If you pay attention, you could see them perform in the most unusual places such as golf courses, shop windows, vacant buildings, etc. Duchess Says has the mandate to decontextualise the rock and to promote simultaneously their Church on the way.

SATURDAY  The Damn Truth

SUNDAY  Enuff Z’Nuff live in the Hammer

TICKETS – $10 Advance $15 on the door
Wrongly lumped in with the disposable pop-metal bands of the late ’80s, ENUFF Z’NUFF is instead a truly gifted power pop act. Founded in Chicago in 1984 by Chip Znuff, ENUFF Z’NUFF arrived with their self-titled debut in August 1989, scoring a couple of hit singles with “New Thing” and “Fly High Michelle”. The follow-up was 1991’s “Strength” album, where the band had noticeably toned down their image and turned up their creative ambitions to deliver a masterful ’90s take on the crunchy power pop sound of CHEAP TRICK and BADFINGER.

As of today, ENUFF Z’NUFF is still going strong and continues touring the globe.
