This Week's Hamilton Music ListingsIt's a bit of a quiet week with the long weekend coming up, but there are still lots of shows to check out. About the listings: Our music listings are lovingly assembled by hand and are based on the information posted by venues on their sites / facebook pages.  So.....errors occur.  If you notice an omission or error please feel free email me.  whatishamiltonon@gmail.com
NB: Listings do not include cover bands, open mics (although I'm working on a separate list for that) or things like karaoke.   Hamilton Rocks! and there are too many listings to make it easy to just scroll.... so go ahead and jump to a particular day:

JONI VOID (Constellation Records) with BLUNT CHUNKS, HUTCHIE, NPND ( solo ) plus DJ SEE THRU @ This Ain't Hollywood Genre: Experimental Electronic Time: 8pm
$8 door
Why Should I Go?  This is a really interesting collection of artists (we'd expect no less from Strangewaves...) Joni Void's album "Selfless" is an exploration of sounds, feelings and emotions taking and borrowing. From the voyeuristic song Observer that plays with and around a woman's conversation overheard, to Young Werther that melds into and out of rap/hip hop to and from ethereal soundscapes.  Blunt Chunks (Caitlin Woelfle-O'Brien) weaves vocal and guitar based dreaminess, NPND (Jackson of Persons) will be doing a solo set - not sure if it will be the experimental jazz inspired hip hop vibe of Persons, but it should be interesting, and finally Hutchie will be weaving together accidental collections of sounds.

You can hear them here, then hear them there.

Figure Walking - Feature Interview and Show Video

Image
Feature Artist Interview Tuesday night at the Casbah featured a band from Winnipeg that may have gone unnoticed.  Figure Walking is the lastest incarnation of Greg MacPherson.  Greg was long-listed for the Polaris Prize for his last album Fireball.  With Figure Walking not only has the performance name changed, but Greg along with Drummer Rob Gardiner have taken things in a completely different and exciting direction.  Their just released album "The Big Other" has already received very positives reviews including this one from Exclaim and it has been on "heavy rotation" at my place.  I caught up with Greg and Rob before their show at The Casbah for a quick chat.  You can check out the video above.  Stick around (or FF) to videos of a couple of their songs performed at the Casbah a the end of the video.
Figure walking's album "The Big Other" is available through disintegration records
