Friday, December 2nd. 8pm at the Pearl Company
Something very special is happening in Hamilton this Friday, the one and only C.R. Avery is performing at the Pearl Company. This is a show you do not want to miss out on. If you aren’t wise to C. R. Avery he is best described as an: Outlaw Hip-Hop harmonica player, a beatbox poet, a punk piano player, a string quartet Raconteur, and a vocal mastermind. Avery is in a sense: a musical renaissance man. C.R Avery is a dynamic and raw performer who gracefully slides from poetry to hip hop, from spoken word to rock and roll; a one man wonderband. In plain terms: he simultaneously sings, beatboxes, plays the piano and the harmonica. That is a lot of talent from one man.
C.R Avery plays the Pearl Company this Friday at 8pm.
Tickets are $15 at the door / $10 for artists/students.
