No Wave/ Noise/ Punk – Hamilton
From the ashes of Poorage, Human Nun was freshly birthed – similar streams of shifty weirdness were quickly demon-strated.
Members other projects: Man Made Hill, Lizzy Boredom, Get Off The Cop, Sensei, Concavity, Toilephant, etc, etc, etc!
Manny Manteau aka Randy Gagne was beckoned by the 3 ex members of Poorage to saddle up behind the bash machine! Drew Taylor plays his guitar (with self destruct strum triggered strings it seems) and spews some vocal chunks into a microphone, Danielle Ouimet picks up a guitar and yells like a lovely banshee, and Beth de Jong picks up her bass guitar (by the neck) and told the microphone where to go not so nicely. They morphed into some kind of mighty strange, improvised no wave/ noise/ punk creature of shoulder vibration delight.

All proceeds to the
East Hamilton Rent Strike Defence Fund
For over 4 months a group of Stoney Creek Towers tenants have been withholding rent, from their greedy dirtbag landlords (CLV/InterRent), in collective protest of an unaffordable Above Guideline Increase (AGI) in their rent (9.6% over 2yrs), and a lack of repairs to their units. The tenants are all working class folks.. folks on low and fixed incomes, gov’t assistance, seniors, immigrants, young families, etc. For them, a 10% increase in rent is dire. For many it means needing to move, in a housing market with NOTHING in their price range; for others it means choosing between rent and food, or rent and proper care for their families. The Rent Strike is tenants fighting back. Organized and determined. In a fight for their homes.. a fight to remain in their communities, with their friends, doctors, schools, shops, etc. A fight for respect, and for the dignity of working class Hamilton. And with CLV forcing tenants to the Landlord Tenant Board (LTB).. that fight is fucking expensive.
In celebration of the summer of Rent Strike.. in support of working class Hamilton folks standing up to a billion dollar Real Estate Investment giant.. and in the spirit of ’46.. come get loud, rowdy rawkus with us.. and raise some beers, cheers and dollars for the rent striking tenants of the Stoney Creek Towers (and their growing shit stack of LTB notices and fling fees).
10PM DOORS // Doing a late start for all our Strangewaves pals. Their beautiful free Strange Day at the Bay runs 2pm-11pm down at Bayfront Park // https://www.facebook.com/events/844050795795239/ // get you some some of that sweet Strange and then come rawk with us at th’Saint // ?
