Image may contain: 2 people

Update:
MUSIC STARTS AT 9:30PM

// Brandy Zdan //

http://www.brandyzdan.com

Zdan stretches her legs with her solo career, exploring the middle ground between the Beatles, the Breeders and the Bangles on this hook-heavy garage-rocker. Come for the guitar work, stay for the reverb-drenched harmonies, which connect the dots between the poppy and the psychedelic Americana.”
– Rolling Stone

“Secretear’s riff-laden burners and mindful pop ballads shine with emotional resolve and permanence.”- RELIX

“Zdan is rock music’s best weapon for survival. She’s a devilish noise-maker, and no one could possibly catch up to her. And that’s OK. She’s in a masterclass of her very own. – Popdust

“One woman tour de force” – Lone Star Magazine.

“Fetching pop/rock melodies” – SPIN

// The Redhill Valleys//

http://www.theredhillvalleys.com

The Redhill Valleys are a four piece Alt-Country and Roots Rock band from Hamilton, Ontario. The band consists of Guitarists Tim Allard, Danielle Beaudin, bassist Chelsea McWilliams and Drummer Matt Soliveri. Last summer, they were named runners-up at the 2017 Boots and Hearts Emerging Artists Showcase and have since gained a lot of traction and fans in the Canadian Country music scene. Their influences come from iconic artists such as Neil Young, Lucinda Williams, Tom Petty and The Band, while forging a musical path all their own. Their unapologetic stage presence and grit-infused harmonies are putting The Redhill Valleys on the Canadian Music map as a band you don’t want to miss.

Strangewaves presents:
Lucrecia Dalt
John Wiese
Thoughts On Air
+ DJ Night Cheese
LUCRECIA DALT (Berlin via Columbia, Rvng Intl.)
https://lucreciadalt.bandcamp.com/
Musician & sound artist Lucrecia Dalt has been making riveting sonic explorations for years now, and her latest LP, 2018’s Anticlines has garnered widespread international acclaim, a record that suggests “this is what antiforms sound like, and this is what the universe’s indifference sounds like.” Dalt’s ongoing experiments with visual artist Regina de Miguel support these ideas, their practice allowing the objects of their attention to slip in and out of being. Her slippery spoken word and performative nature is recalling the work of Laurie Anderson, Robert Ashley, Asmus Tietchens, or Lena Platonos. In preparing a live set for Anticlines, Dalt plans to stage an uninterrupted configuration, like a kind of alienated lecture, aiming for “gestures that create tensions with non-existent objects.” Dalt intends “to provide meaning and a place for the listener to meditate or relate to the concerns and ideas” she presents
JOHN WIESE (Los Angeles, Pan/Gilgongo/etc records)
https://johnwiese.bandcamp.com/
A prolific force of psychedelia out of the american underground, Wiese has been pumping out uncompromising sound explorations for over 2 decades, in a multitude of ensembles, solo and in his duo Sissy Spacek. The current iteration of his live set, featuring a reel to reel tape machine, is said to be his finest yet.
THOUGHTS ON AIR (Hamilton, Cloud Valley)
https://thoughtsonair.bandcamp.com/
Hamilton’s long time purveyor of twisted soulscapes, Thoughts on Air has been cranking out incredibly affecting music across many calendar years. TOA is the perfect Hamiltonian component on this beautiful bill of prolific creators.

NOT OF
Ian Blurton’s FUTURE NOW
MOUNT CYANIDE

The mighty duo NOT OF returns to the Hammer with a pair of all-star supergroups each making their Steeltown debuts.

First up? The legendary Ian Blurton (Change of Heart, Public Animal, C’Mon, Blurtonia, et al) has a new combo: FUTURE NOW. Its goal? Open worship of all things riffy and tritone-ish. Its weapons? Only three of the most seasoned, potent players around in Aaron Goldstein, Anna Ruddick, and Glenn Milchem. Shut up. This is gonna be nuts.

And (double-)kicking the night off? MOUNT CYANIDE is the brand new black metal project forged from the ashes of the stalwart power trio, The Illuminati, including the current bassist/vocalist in Biblical, Nick Sewell.

Honestly? My brain is exploding just writing this out. Our release party in August was super special…but we think this can be even better. Can’t wait, Hamilton!

Montreal violinist Jessica Moss has performed and recorded with a wide spectrum of ensembles over the last two decades. Best known as a permanent member of Thee Silver Mt. Zion Memorial Orchestra, she was also a founding member of avant-klezmer group Black Ox Orkestar, recorded and toured with the Vic Chesnutt band for the two albums released on Constellation, and worked extensively with Carla Bozulich’s Evangelista. She has also performed and recorded as a guest with many of Montreal’s best known artists, most recently with Big|Brave on their acclaimed 2016 record for Southern Lord. She was featured in Jem Cohen’s Empires of Tin project, and joined members of Godspeed, Fugazi, White Magic and Dirty Three to perform the live score to Cohen’s film We Have An Anchor in various locations at Europe and the USA. Most recently she’s been collaborating and performing with the band Laniakea, featuring Daniel O’Sullivan (Ulver, Grumbling Fur, Æthenor, This Is Not This Heat) and Massimo Pupillo (Zu).

Though she’s been playing violin practically her entire life, Jessica has always felt most at home in a collaborative setting and has been steadfastly devoted to the practice of ensemble playing. This has generally meant creation ‘in the service of’: the other parts being played, the lyrics being sung, the structure of the song, and/or the recording and mixing at hand. The practices inherent in group creation and performance inform her very person in many ways and have given her a deep understanding and respect for both group dynamics and ‘working communities’ in general.

Moss’ catalyst to create solo work was a 2014 virtual collaboration with Olympia, USA musician Kevin Doria, who creates intensely rich and layered minimalist drone music under the moniker Total Life and with his bands Growing and Hiss Tracts. Simultaneously she was commissioned by La Biennale de Montréal to create a site specific composition that reflected on the theme of the 2014 exhibition.

Alone in her practice space equipped with the tools, methods, and experiences gleaned from years in studios, rehearsal spaces, performing and touring, Jessica commenced building her unique style and structure. The music that came was longform and narrative, conjuring images with sounds and melodies and occasional lyrics, and telling exigent stories of troubled times. Written by ear and memory and never committed to paper, Moss conceives for live performance, where she makes use of violin, a myriad of pedals, a microphone, and three amplifiers.

Moss says she feels aligned with the transportive nature of storytelling tradition. By creating narrative music around subjects already on many minds, she aims to create a space for collective reflection. She believes sharing such “transporting moments” can be both balm and a catalyst to engagement .

In 2015 Jessica self-released the cassette Under Plastic Island, a beautiful, swirling meditation on the island of plastic trash floating in the ocean, the result of a trip to Brooklyn during which she spent time in the basement recording studio of friend and occasional collaborator Guy Picciotto.

In the last 18 months she has been invited to perform solo at Le Guess Who in Utrecht, ATP in Wales, Pop Montreal, La Biennale de Montréal, and Suoni Per Il Popolo. For the 2017 edition of Big Ears Festival (Knoxville, USA), Moss will perform solo as well as undertake multiple collaborative performances with Cohen’s Gravity Hill project (featuring Guy Picciotto, Jim White, Matana Roberts and others).

May 2017 heralds Jessica Moss’ first official full-length solo release. Comprised of two side-length multi-movement compositions, Pools Of Light is a stunning work that unfolds at a stately, inexorable pace, combining sound-art and signal-processed timbres, extended melodic and contrapuntal lines, and the periodic deployment of stark, minimalist vocals. Recorded with kindred spirit Radwan Ghazi Moumneh and released on the only label home she knows, Jessica says she “is feeling fucking grateful to be doing what I’m doing right now” and hopes to see you on the road.
