TUESDAY  MAY 23 PHEW (Japanese legend) with YlangYlang & Xuan Ye

Image may contain: text

Strangewaves is overjoyed to announce an incredibly special performance by a Japanese legend, alongside a Canadian artist whose passionate work is near and dear to so many hearts:

Phew (Tokyo, Japan)
Phew’s career began in the 70s when she fronted Osaka punk group Aunt Sally (who released one album on Vanity Records in 1979). Ryuichi Sakamoto produced Phew’s first solo release in 1980 and in 1981 Pass Records issued her debut LP, a classic featuring Holger Czukay and Jaki Liebezeit of Can, and Conny Plank. She’s since collaborated with members of DAF, Neubauten, Boredoms and more. Her latest two solo LPs, Light Sleep & Voice Hardcore have received deep critical acclaim from The Wire, Pitchfork, Dusted Magazine and more.

MONDAY   Palberta, Man Made Hill, Sourpussy at This Ain’t Hollywood

No automatic alt text available.

Strangewaves is thrilled to bring a behemoth tripleheaded monster to This Ain’t Hollywood on an unsuspecting Monday. Time to figure out how to get off work on May 8…

Palberta (NYC/Philly)
Palberta are total mindblowing vagabonds, who are killing it at every level right now. They somehow continue to get better: releasing classic albums on an annual basis and constantly touring have made Palberta living legends in the underground scene. Palberta is totally chaotic, yet masterfully tight. Hamilton debut!
https://palbertapalberta.bandcamp.com/

Man Made Hill (Hamilton)
Purveyor of ear-worm melodies, big bouncy beats, syrupy synths and the best live show in canaduh, Man Made Hill is a pop star from a virtual VHScollection. MMH somehow creates something unique and real with each live set, putting it all on the line for the sake of an unforgettable show. Hot on the heels of his brand new smash hit, FINGERTIP, catch him before he hits the road for his first west coast tour!
https://manmadehill.bandcamp.com/releases

Sourpussy (Hamilton)
The mischievous rascals of improv are back to tear a big ol hole in whatever expectations we might have. After a cold harsh winter, Sourpussy is sure ready to *SPRING* into action and deliver a freakishly radical set of spontaneity.
https://sourpussy.bandcamp.com/releases

$10

TUESDAY  MAY 8 Calcedon/CHANCES/The Ferns in Hamilton

Image may contain: 6 people, text

There’s something empowering about seeing Montreal’s CHANCES play live. Lead singers Chloé Lacasse and Geneviève Toupin mirror each other with their synth/keyboard set-ups while drummer Vincent Carré sits directly in the middle, forming a circle with the audience and giving the show a sort of pop ceremony feel. Their unique sound is a blend of influences and cultures, mixing indie-pop with a hint of electro and world music, underscored by the english, french-canadian and Metis backgrounds present in the trio. With harmonies weaving in and out of thumping drums and sparkling synths, CHANCES’ otherworldly pop songs strike like a stream of light to the gut.

SLOW with Dearly Beloved & FLESH RAG.

Slow — Vancouver
https://slow.bandcamp.com/releases

It is almost impossible to over-estimate the effect of Slow on Canadian music. Formed in the mid-80s in Vancouver, and releasing only one album and one 7″ on Zulu Records, the band has consistently been called one of the most influential punk rock bands in Canada and forerunners of the Seattle grunge scene. Perhaps most infamously, Slow is also the band that brought Expo 86 to its knees.

Not bad for a band that recorded only eight songs.
Slow was formed by Thomas Anselmi, Christian Thorvaldson, Stephen Hamm, and Terry Russell. Ziggy Sigmund was added to the line-up soon after as a second guitarist. The band released the 7″ I Broke the Circle in 1985, followed by Against the Glass in 1986, which featured the legendary “Have Not Been the Same,” one of the most iconic songs in Canadian music history. The song’s name was even taken as the name for the CanRock Encyclopedia, published by ECW Press.

Slow’s brand of rock n roll and punk rock has not aged one bit: Anselmi’s voice is monstrous, the guitars seriously rock n roll, and the drummer is all energy and destruction. Against the Glass is the kind of album that could only be delivered by a veteran act of 20 years—or a bunch of genius teenagers with not much better to do.

Dearly Beloved — Toronto

Families Welcome!
Saturday April 28th, 2 to 4 pm.

A TRUE CANADIAN BORN AND RAISED IN HAMILTON.

Nick was born and raised in Hamilton, Ontario. While attending St.Jean de Brebeuf high school, he asserted his athletic abilities playing soccer and football. Nick completed his post secondary education at Bishops University in Sherbrook Quebec – completing four successful football seasons with the Gaiters and graduating with a Bachelor of Business Administration and a Major in Entrepreneurship.

Nick started his bobsleigh career in January 2013. He wasted no time in learning to drive a bobsleigh as he took the front seat on the track in LakePlacid, New York. Following this training, Nick had an impressive start to the 2013-2014 season, placing 3rd at the Canadian Championships. Nick’s success on the 2013-2014 North American Cup circuit continued – with starts consistently in the top 5 amongst stiff competition alongside some of the foremost World Cup sleds.

Nick started the 2014-2015 season on the Winsport Academy Team – an accelerated pilot program for the National Bobsleigh Team – clinching two 1st place finishes on the North American Cup. Nick’s success quickly escalated in the second half of the season, as he moved to the National Team to compete on the World Cup Circuit. His 15th place finish at the World Championships was the highest finish for a Canadian Men’s Team.

Nick’s current world ranking is 18th out of 90 sleds.

FRIDAY  Bredren Dub feat. Resinators plus MC Caddy Cad & General Genius

No automatic alt text available.

This Ain’t Hollywood presents a 4/20 Dub Reggae Party!!!
BREDREN DUB Featuring Resinators – Canada’s Original Live Dub Experience alongside MC Caddy Cad & General Genius
Special guests: Chronicles Dub Trio

Friday, April 20th, 2018

http://bredren.ca/
https://www.facebook.com/bredrendublive/

BREDREN was created by Resinators core members, JBass, G*, Mountain Dread, and Wayne Hanson after the passing of Resinators legendary Jamaican/Canadian drummer, Paul “Raffa” Dean” White (1959-2014)

BREDREN is honoured to have “Reggae Royalty” Bernie Pitters (Toots and the Maytals) plus his son Akiva(“Killa”) on Keyboards. The Band is firmly anchored by veteran Toronto Drummer Jason Marshall from local Reggae legends “Treble Attack”.

Resinators alumni MC Caddy Cad brings years of live experience on the mic with longtime vocal collaborator General Genius and his “raw an’ ruff” style.

Rounding out the lineup is multi instrumentalist Pierre Mongeon on Horn, Trumpet, Melodica, and Flute.

Toronto troubadour Chris A. Cummings (Marker Starling, formerly Mantler) has been playing Melancholy Party Jams since 1999. A solo performer for many years, his preferred weapons were a Wurltizer electric piano and an early pre-programmed drum machine. More recently he has been supported by a band consisting of Jay Anderson (drums) and Matt McLaren (bass).

After a long association with Germany’s Tomlab label, who released the second, third and fourth Mantler records (SADISFACTION, LANDAU and MONODY) Cummings began working with UK-based Tin Angel Records in 2010. With Tin Angel, Marker Starling has released 3 albums since 2015 – the acclaimed ROSY MAZE (praised by Matthew Horton in the NME for its “timeless quality”), solo all-covers record I’M WILLING (2016), and the self-retrospective ANCHORS AND AMPERSANDS (2017). An all-originals solo record is planned for release in late 2018. The recent 3 records were also released by Japan’s 7e.p. Records, who brought Cummings to Japan for performances in 2016 and 2018.

Cummings has collaborated with the German band Von Spar, contributing vocals and lyrics to four songs on their album STREET LIFE (Italic, 2014). His song “Deep Background” was recorded by Stereolab’s Laetitia Sadier for her Source Ensemble record FIND ME FINDING YOU (Drag City, 2017). His 2010 song “In Stride” was included in DJ Koze’s DJ-Kicks compilation on !K7 Records in 2015.

For this “expanded band” performance, the core band of Cummings, Anderson, McLaren and Andy Scott (guitar/synth/percussion) will be joined by three backing singers (Alex Samaras, Robin Dann and Ben Gunning) and three horn players (Jeremy Strachan (saxophones, flute), Jason Hay (saxophones) and Patric McGroarty (trumpet)).

WEDNESDAY  Woodhawk “Magnetic North” Tour 2018 With Familiars

Image may contain: text

Calgary, AB’s masters of straight ahead riff-rock wizardry WOODHAWK announce their 2018 Canadian “Magnetic North Tour” in support of their latest full length album “Beyond The Sun” released April last year and recently named the #12 most played release on the Canadian College Radio Top 20 Loud Charts for 2017 (Source: Earshot). The tour will see the trio trek across Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba plus performing for the first time in Ontario and Quebec (dates listed below).
The band comments:
“We’re excited to be hitting the road again and heading out East this time. We haven’t played past Winnipeg yet and we’re stoked to finally make it out there.”WOODHAWK’s debut album “Beyond The Sun” was produced by the band with Jesse Gander (Bison, Japandroids) to follow their 2014 self-titled EP. Made of equal parts 1970’s Birmingham and a myriad of 21st century heavy who’s who, WOODHAWK are purveyors of riff-centric rock and roll. Capable and original, the band is able to craft anthemic fist-pumping songs while forgoing tired stoner rock clichés. With time travel tested themes of science fiction, swords and sorcery, the band’s lyrics are born from snowy winters, hot practice spaces and pages of dog-eared paperbacks. While the musicianship reinforces recollections of Black Sabbath, modern influences that have helped you smash air drums or highway speed limits are undeniably present.
‘Beyond The Sun’ album stream available on Bandcamp at https://woodhawk.bandcamp.com/

The album is available on digital, vinyl and CD.

The band’s music video ‘The High Priest’ can be viewed athttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M5g5jTKtEfM
