Image may contain: text and water

New-Wave / Post-Punk Night at This Ain’t Hollywood:
BEAUTIFUL NOTHING (Burlington, ON)
THE FOREIGN RESORT (Copenhagen, Denmark)
SINE RITUAL (Hamilton, ON)

Beautiful Nothing
An eighties ignited sphere of driving electronics, thick, grimace inducing bass lines and soaring, dissonant guitar lines that would speak to the Pixies in their Bossanova years.

Watch: https://youtu.be/qsMaKK7JeKs

Listen: https://soundcloud.com/beautifulnothing

The Foreign Resort
The Foreign Resort are Denmark’s finest musical export of post-punk and dark new wave. The trio combines the shadowy mysticism of The Cure’s Pornography era with a driving production aesthetic akin to LCD Soundsystem.

Strangewaves proudly presents a very special evening featuring astonishing artists from across the globe:

Devin Brahja Waldman & Friends (NYC/Montreal/Hamilton)
An Shrub (Hamilton)

$10 advance / $13 door
8 pm doors

Nadah El Shazly (Cairo, Egypt)

Starting out singing Misfits covers in a local punk band, then moving onto producing her own electronic tracks and making a name for herself in Cairo’s underground scene, Nadah El Shazly’s backstory is not that unusual. Her debut album on the other hand, is an entirely unexpected story.

Two years in the making, Ahwar (Arabic for marshlands) is an otherworldly record, not unlike an abstract mythological story-tale. Opening with the mangled and filtered vocals of the album’s lead track Afqid Adh-Dhakira (I Lose Memory) like an alien dream, the drones of a bowed double bass lead us into a drum groove that lays the groundwork for El Shazly’s sultry and captivating presence, singing: “(I am) coming, from a time far away. Going, escaping. Alone in the wilderness”.

The Arabic prose lingers over interjections of slap-back delayed guitar twangs and an avant-garde arrangement of dissonant winds, horns and seemingly random drum fills, ending with an eerie soundscape that wouldn’t feel out of place in a Giallo classic. A daring and potent statement that sets the foundations over which the rest of the album can unravel.

Composed, written and produced by El Shazly herself in collaboration with The Dwarfs of East Agouza’s Maurice Louca and Sam Shalabi on co-composition and arrangement duties, the album was crafted across two continents, between Canada and Egypt, and features the crème of Montreal’s contemporary-classical and improvised music scene, most of whom are members of Shalabi’s own Land of Kush ensemble.

In between El Shazly’s five original tracks, we are treated to an abstract cover version of Sayyid Darwish’s classic Ana ‘Ishiqt (I Once Loved). El Shazly’s haunting vocal floats over broken Kalimba and Harp arpeggios which slowly intertwine with a free, bowed double bass improv to nestle within the breaks between Younes Al-Qadhi’s early 20th century verses of love and betrayal.

More than that, it is difficult to really describe, but imagine the worlds of Nico, Björk and Annette Peacock with the Arabic language as their mother tongue, re-approached through acoustic avant-jazz harmony and re-constructed with a dash of Kamilya Jubran’s modern styling of Arabic maqam and you may be somewhere close.

https://nadahelshazly.bandcamp.com/album/ahwar

Devin Brahja Waldman & Friends (NYC/Montreal/Hamilton)

Leader and New York saxophonist, Devin Brahja Waldman, has performed and/or recorded with Patti Smith, Thurston Moore, Malcolm Mooney (of Can), Lydia Lunch, Godspeed! You Black Emperor, Baba Donn Babatunde (of The Last Poets), Daniel Carter, Nadah El Shazly, Yoshiko Chuma and Sam Shalabi. He is a member of Heroes Are Gang Leaders— led by poet Thomas Sayers Ellis and saxophonist James Brandon Lewis. Waldman plays in Artists For A Free World Marching Band led by Patricia Parker and William Parker. He has collaborated with his aunt, outrider poet Anne Waldman, since the age of ten. As a youngster, Waldman received formative mentorship by pianist Paul Bley. Waldman is a co-producer for Fast Speaking Music— a NYC poetry and music label which has released the works of Amiri Baraka, Meredith Monk, Eileen Myles, CA Conrad, Fred Moten, Joanne Kyger and many others.

Along with Nadah, Devin is fortuitously in the area to be part of the Land of Kush: Sand Enigma – World Premiere ensemble, and is using this opportunity to unleash a brand new release of his, coming out onHAVNrecords!

THURSDAY  RUSTY (90’s Alt Rock Punk Faves) plus BRUJA Malvada

Image may contain: text

One of the best bands to come out of Toronto in the 90’s. Rusty mixes pop punk, and guitar driven rock to a generation of 90’s Canadian youth.

Biography
Rusty is a Canadian alternative rock band formed in 1994 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The band earned a 1996 Juno Award nomination in the category Best Alternative Album for Fluke.

Rusty was formed from the ashes of One Free Fall. That band’s bassist Jim Moore, drummer Bob Vespaziani and singer Ken MacNeil continued rehearsing together in Toronto’s Kensington Market area. After teaming with ex-Doughboys member Scott McCullough — Rusty was born. When it was clear they were going to be signed to Atlantic records in the U.S. Vespaziani was unable to carry on with the band and he was replaced by Mitch Perkins. They soon released a an eponymous 5 song E.P. which was recorded in only a couple of days. The EP did well on the indie and college charts and produced their first charting single ‘Wake Me’.

The band’s debut album, titled ‘Fluke’, found the Handsome Boy – TAG (US label) release distributed by BMG in Canada and through Atlantic Records in the States.. On the heels of the album’s first single, “Misogyny”, filmmaker Bruce La Bruce liked the song so much he used it in his film ‘Hustler White’. The result of that association led to a Much Music award-winning video for the song (a collage of scenes from the movie) and pushing ‘Fluke’ to gold status in Canada.The song ‘Punk’ was also featured in the Penelope Spheeris film ‘Black Sheep’ with David Spader and Chris Farley.

The disc sold just a hair short of Gold Status in Canada, reaching the modern rock Top 40 in the U.S., and yielded four radio hits — “Wake Me”, “Groovy Dead”, “Misogyny”, and “California”. It also earned them a Juno nomination for ‘Best Alternative Album’; losing to Art Bergmann (Jim Moore played bass on some of Art’s album).

Their follow-up album was titled ‘Sophomoric’, and was produced by GGGarth Richardson (Rage Against The Machine, Red Hot Chili Peppers, L7). The first single, “Empty Cell”, featured the return of Bruce La Bruce — this time as the video’s director.

In 1996, during the recording of “Let’s Break Robert Out Of Jail” for the soundtrack of Bruce MacDonald’s movie ‘Hard Core Logo’, the band began experimenting with 1960’s and 1970’s garage styles. This style mutation resulted in the 1998 album ‘Out Of Their Heads’ featuring Rusty originals plus covers of the Velvet Underground’s “Sunday Morning” and The Kinks’ “Till The End Of The Day” produced produced by Matt DeMatteo (Big Wreck, Brass Bikini, Ashley MacIsaac). It would also be the full-length debut for new drummer John Lalley who joined the band in 1997 to record their Christmas song “It’s Christmas Time (And I’m Poor) That record produced the chart topping single ‘Soul for Sale’

The band broke up in March of 1999, playing a final reunion show on November 25, 2000.

In the summer of 2011 the band reunited for two shows at the NXNE festival in Toronto, sharing the stage with Descendants, Fucked Up and Metz at Dundas Square and another sold out club show at The El Mocambo…the first venue the band played at back back in 1994.

In 2012 the band did the “It’s Christmastime and I’m Poor” tour of Southern Ontario. Weakerthans bassist John Sutton was recruited to replace Jim Moore (who now resides in the U.K.) and original drummer Bob Vespaziani replaced John Lalley (who was out of the country as well). That mini tour culminated in a sold old Horseshoe Tavern show on Dec 28.

The last three years have seen shows in Ottawa, Hamilton, Cambridge, London and Sudbury as well as yearly Horseshoe Tavern gigs and a 2015 CMW secret show at the Bovine in Toronto. Now under new management from L.A. based Black and Blue {Sebadoh, Lemonheads, Men Without Hats) Rusty are demoing new tunes for an album release in 2016.

THURSDAY  MOON KING WITH PERSONS & BLUNT CHUNKS

Image may contain: 1 person, text and indoor

GET TIX HERE https://www.bruha.com/event/2610

Moon King is the alias of producer, singer and songwriter Daniel Benjamin. Born in Toronto, the musician spent 2016 in Detroit, where the musically fertile and offbeat neighborhood of Hamtramck became both his home and the inspiration for a new set of recordings. Hamtramck ’16 documents his arrival into a new and unfamiliar environment combined with a growing obsession for underground dance music, a sound and spirit that has always felt right at home in Detroit. Collaborating with local artists and musicians, and having the freedom to stretch out after several years of constant touring, Daniel put together a completely new band with a sound drawing from dance music‘s early days, from synthpop, disco and house music up through the more pop-oriented songcraft of the Bee Gees or Prince. Daniel’s attention to detail in production, and willingness to break the mold of what he sees as his own potential, have made him an interesting figure to watch. With Hamtramck ’16 he has created a lo-fi pop gem that will leave listeners eager to hear what comes next.

Persons
Conceived amidst the clutter of dank DIY loft spaces in Montreal’s Griffintown, Nick Persons began in earnest as the vehicle for multi-disciplinary artist and producer Jackson Darby’s shakily constructed sound collages. Expanding to include DJ Choozey Dollarbin$z for live manipulations and rhythmic destabilization, the project eventually grew out of its dilapidated foundations in hip hop and male given name, adding members Katie McDonald and Benita Whyte who bring their vocal, visual, dance and performance stylings to the quartet. The now Hamilton, Ontario based, PERSONS delivers sets of high energy dance music that doesn’t forget its free-form, noisey roots. Through improvised choreography, hypnotic repetition and glitter glazed visuals, they seek to express, include, move and integrate its audience into their singular brand of immersive ecstasy while experimenting with different modes of performance.

FRIDAY Cleveland No Wave legends X__X w/ Pow Wows & Noble Savages

Image may contain: text

Folks, this one is going to blow the roof off the old Saint.

X___X (“ex blank ex”)
“A turbulent quartet that tore through Cleveland like a Dadaist cyclone for six months in 1978. Preceding his imminent relocation to NYC, burly, blond brawler John D Morton assembled the project as a tighter, more rocking successor to his storied proto-punk act, the electric eels.” -Ektro Records
Six months, two KBD 45s and five shows.

*”The record I’d brought home was wild: Its atonal droning, lurching rhythms, skronky guitars and snarling vocals suggested a Midwestern cousin to New York’s “no wave” movement. This was literally art-punk.” -New York Times

The latest incarnation of X__X also features Craig Bell (Mirrors, Rocket from the Tombs, the Down-fi) and is amazing live.

You will be sorry if you miss this show!

Support from Toronto fuzz beat garage monsters THE POW WOWS (get hip records). “One of the mainstays of the Toronto garage rock scene, the Pow Wows like their music fast, loud, and atmospheric, giving their tunes a buzzy, swampy tone and a psychedelic overlay that sets them apart from other fuzzbox manglers following similar paths.” – Mark Deming, Allmusic.com

And local hooligans THE NOBLE SAVAGES: Back from the dead with a truly savage “new” drummer and wilder sound. (Plus a few surprises.)

PLUS DJ Rob Sikora will be spinning fascinating musical gems all night long

Saturday Boys Do Girls

Admission $20 or PWYC. Doors open @ 8:30, music starts @ 9
