Music, art, food, and literature are all part of Hamilton’s transition to cultural hub of Southern Ontario.
It is time to celebrate literature with Hamilton’s 4th annual Grit Lit; a gathering of award winning authors and enthusiastic book lovers. Made up of workshops, debates, speeches, panels, readings, and more - Grit Lit is the place to be for lovers of literature.
The festival spans a few days and features an interesting literary event each night. Grit Lit kicks off with a fantastic event: 10 Hamiltonians will each defend one title from the Ontario Library Association’s Evergreen Award shortlist. Those involved are: Trevor Cole, Tor Lukasik-Foss, Jeremy Greenspan, Annette Hamm, Miranda Hill, Matt Jelly, Jeff Mahoney, Stephanie Seagram, Jamie Tennant and Grant Winstock.
This festival is a true Hamilton gem; if you like to read you should try to make it out to one of the great events planned.
8pm March 23rd and 24th, $12, Lyric Theatre 434 King St. W. Tickets available at revwear.ca .
The theme of this year’s revolutionary fashion show featuring only reused materials is: Respect. The notion of respect will be explored as part of a triad with love and trust. Delving into multiple perspectives of respect – respect for oneself, for partners, family, and community. It is also intended as an evolutionary theme from the previous RevWear shows – as a next step in recovery and rebellion against the ills of society, which is infested with disrespect.
On top of fashion, this show will feature music, dance, spoken word, and aerial trapeze. It will be an excellent showcase of Hamilton’s many revolutionary artistic talents.

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.
