CMW fully kicked into gear Wednesday night with a jam-packed schedule of heavy hitters. Thursday picks up right we left off with big locals acts, surprise gusts and an all-around stellar lineup.
Double Denim Showcase | Garrison | Event Info
Kick things off with the Double Denim Showcase with some of the best developing local bands on the Market. Hamilton’s Billy Moon will undoubtedly bring their garage rock madness, while Toronto’s JAUNT will supply softer tones, bringing their unique blend of pop, soul, jazz, R&B and indie rock.
Sleepless Records Showcase | Horseshoe Tavern | Event Info
Tonight at the Sleepless Record Showcase there will be a little something for everyone. Feed your nostalgia with the groovy/psychedelic rockers Sunshine & The Blue Moons, or let off some steam from the day with Hamilton punk rockers OMNI. Good luck getting in though — July Talk was just added to the bill, instantly putting this show on the map as the hottest ticket in town. The fun kicks off at 8 p.m.
DJ Windows 98 | Rec Room | Event Info
Don’t let the name fool you, this act will be way more fun than your old desktop computer. Arcade Fire’s Win Butler will be supplying the tunes under his DJ Windows 98 moniker, mixing elements of modern dance with world tones for an all-night dance party. Opening act Felix kicks things off at 10 p.m., followed by Butler at 11 p.m.
