GET TIX HERE https://www.bruha.com/event/3435
Are you a Billy Van fan? You know, the guy from Frightenstein? Party Game? Nightcap? Bizarre? Hmm, how about Bits & Bytes? Anyways, a writer named Stacey Case and his friend, author Greg Oliver, are writing a book about Billy Van, using Billy’s own unpublished autobiography as the framework. They are self-publishing the book, with a distribution offer already. Stacey’s also curating a Billy Van museum, opening the beginning of July, right here in Hamilton. Both endeavours need to generate revenue to keep going – so BILLY VAN FANS UNITE!
This Ain’t Hollywood presents the Billy Van Benefit on Thursday July 14. Get this –
TRACY VAN EVERA
they’re all reading excerpts from Billy’s unpublished book! His own words! Covering his whole career! This will be a magical event for fans of Billy Van!
Doors are at 7:30 and the readings start promptly at 8. Stacey will be spinning sweet soul music 45’s from his collection all night! Advance tickets are $12, and it’s $15 at the door. All funds raised go towards the Billy Van museum and book. See you there!
FRIDAY June 15 – HAPPY BIRTHDAY MATT BURNS feat GNARLY HORSE ,MATTY SIMPSON and BEN SOMER – 9pm
On Friday, June 15th at This Ain’t Hollywood! Gnarly Horse! Matty Simpson! Ben Somer! And best of all, he’s a man around town, a prolific drummer who plays with more than a handful of bands in town and teaches future generations of rhythm makers.. you all know him, you all love him – it’s Matt Burns’ 30th birthday bash! Come out and party with us!
Since their formation, Toronto/Hamilton based four piece, Gnarly Horse, have made it their mission to deliver fuzzed out pop gems inspired by 90s rock giants like Weezer, Smashing Pumpkins and Sloan. The songs are loud, catchy and waste no time getting to the chorus. Lead vocals are shared between guitarists Carter Jarvis and Luke Boehler, who are known for injecting their songs with harmonized guitar licks and catchy vocal melodies that you’ll be humming for days. Their first EP, “Kissing”, was released in 2017, with a follow up set to release in fall 2018.
Matty Simpson is a world class guitar player and singer-songwriter based out of Hamilton, Ontario. His style has been called an eclectic mix of rock and roll and the blues. To hear Matty’s songs is to appreciate what a dedicated singer songwriter he has become. His songs are a testament to the years of devotion to the craft yet their message remains relative to all of his listeners. His singing and vocal styles have been compared to musical greats such as Chris Cornell and Eddie Vedder. His soulful melodies and thoughtful chord progressions will have you wanting to listen to his songs on repeat.
Ben Somer is a gifted songwriter with a knack for storytelling. His works are painstakingly candid snap-shots of the day-to-day which bring to mind the great songwriters of a bygone era. Armed with a razor-sharp wit and a gift for brevity, Somer crafts beautifully compelling songs that are as heartbreaking as they are tongue-in-cheek. His music has travelled across the country via radio, television, internet, and relentless touring. Part of a new generation of artists carrying on the Great Canadian Songwriting Tradition, Ben has performed hundreds of concerts ranging from intimate living room shows – playing to a handful of attentive listeners – to larger music festivals where he’s shared the stage with world-class artists. The future looks promising for the young musician, who has already garnered critical acclaim, and with a third studio album forthcoming it seems that Somer is well on his way to joining the ranks of Canada’s songwriting elite.
