COLOUR FILM: New Songs + JUSTIN SAWICKI: Saturday, November 4

COLOUR FILM: New Songs + JUSTIN SAWICKI: Saturday, November 4, Doors: 7:30pm. Show: MatthewDeZ_ColourFilm01_178:00pm. $20 / $15 students/seniors/wage-challenged. Music for your mind’s eye. With songs that play like home movies rich in imagery and characters, Colour Film is the stage name of Hamilton’s Matthew de Zoete. This concert will be an intimate ensemble performance of new songs – the raw material for a future album. These songs continue the cinematic approach of Super 8, Colour Film’s 2016 release that blends pop and folk in an atmospheric soundscape conjured with producer Les Cooper (Jill Barber, Good Lovelies).  Imagine Nick Drake cheering up a bit and meeting Beck.

Justin Sawicki: Sawicki has been active in the Hamilton Music Scene since 2003. In that time he has shared the stage with such acts as Dave Bidini (Rheostatics), Selina Martin, Tomi Swick, Tom Wilson, and Max Kerman (Arkells).  His 2011 album Nothing for No One was nominated for Independant Album of the Year at the Hamilton Music Awards.  In 2015, he released a self-titled album described by Dusty Organ as being “rooted in storytelling and rustic Canadian musicianship, (the album) shifts from western-style blues riffs, to dense, foot-stomping folk melodies”.  In 2018 Sawicki is set to release a new collection of songs collaborating with long time friends and bandmates Dan Rodrgues and Andrew Barbisan for the project. www.justinsawickimusic.com

Lori Yates with Hey Stella: Saturday, November 11

Lori Yates with Hey Stella: Saturday, November 11. Doors @ 7:30PM, Show Starts @ 8:30. Admission: $20. Alternative country “supergroup” Hey Stella formed in 1998, and quickly gained a Lori Yates_Hey Stella_10_17reputation as one of the premiere “live” acts in the country. Thousands of patrons caught Hey Stella (David Baxter, Bazil Donovan, Michelle Josef, Lori Yates) in the cavernous back room of Ted’s Wrecking Yard and Ted’s Collison during their five year weekly residency. Their irreverent and charming approach to traditional country tunes and their originals included; humor, pathos, stellar musicianship. The night often ended with Lori standing on a table belting out Leonard Cohen’s “So Long Marianne” while everyone in the bar sang along with her, making them a crowd favorite.
The band took time off while babies were born, solo records made, careers were advanced. But when the call came for another weekly residency, this time at the venerable Cameron House, they jumped at the chance. So even in 2017, and from the opening note, it’s clear the Hey Stella mojo is still there, maybe even better, and indeed their sound has aged like a fine vintage wine or a smelly piece of cheese. With special guests…tba….
