Dec 1st. 10:30pm @ The Brain – $PWYC
Saturday night at The Brain is going to be sexy, sludgy and heavy on guitar chords.
Cursed Arrows are back in town with their potent brand of relentless drums, dirty chords, and haunting harmonies.
Playing along side Cursed Arrows is D’Luxe; Aron Dalesio of Hamilton’s beloved Young Rival. Aron will perform his ‘weird ’50′s guitar washout pop’.
This is going to be a great show. I have a feeling that if David Lynch was in town this weekend he would definitely be at this show.
Thurs, Nov 22nd. 9pm @ This Ain’t Hollywood – $20 before 10pm, $25 after.
Get ready to dance and get sweaty, Hamilton, we’ve got a very special treat in town tonight. They’ve played with: Mos Def, Wu Tang Clan, De La Soul, Prince, Femi Kuti, Gorillaz, B52′s and more, and tonight they are here to play for us.
Their musical style is a combination of all the better parts of many different musical genres, ranging from hip-hop to jazz to funk and rock. You can even find traces of calypso and gypsie music in their eclectic blend of sound they call “now music”, or “Hypnotic”.
Brass music is party music – and good brass music is very special. Come start your weekend early with a brass-fueled dance party.

Weds. Nov 21st. 9pm @ This Ain’t Hollywood – $10
There is a huge show happening at This Ain’t Hollywood this Wednesday – it is particularly huge if you are a fan of electronic music.
For an affordable $10 you can see:
Hiawatha - the collaboration between Toronto’s legendary Egyptrixx (David Psutka) and Thrush Hermit (Ian McGettigan).
Pick A Piper is another huge collaborative project. The group is made up of Brad Weber (Caribou drummer), Angus Fraser, Dan Roberts, and Clint Scrivener. These guys will use anything as an instrument and will follow any beat, and yet the music they make is harmonious and beautiful.
Blank Capsule is made up of members of Jokers of The Scene, and Vitaminsforyou. Their sound is best described as industrial electro-goth fusion. You will like it if you like electronic music, trust me.
Shake out your mid week cobwebs and head down to This Ain’t Hollywood this Wednesday for a killer electronic show.
