Creepy Crawlers

3

(hoards of people checking out the art crawl – so popular, the streets were packed!)

Tonight Lee and I experienced our first Hamilton Art Crawl.  We only live a short walk away – so it was about time we joined in on the local events!  I expected to be around a lot of the typical Hamiltonians (aka creepy crawlers) I see every day, but was pleasantly surprised to find a thriving grass roots artist/musician community.  We wandered up and down James street – took in all the sites – loads of clothing vendors, some food of course some awesome art and live music.

My highlight of the evening was the roof top music at Dr.Disc – my current local fav – Jessy Lanza as well The New Hands Band.  There was a senior citizen dancing that could school any dancer on the floor – truly amazing and a reason to upgrade my camera so I can take video.  At the end of the concert there was a mob of girls (including me) dancing with him.  Epic.  I can’t wait for the next crawl!

(my absolute favourite summer happening – raise the roof at Dr.Disc – so cool!)

We had a bite at the local food trucks – also recommended and ended our evening at This ain’t Hollywood – retro rave our friend Noa DJ Everblue was playing.  What a night!  If you can make it the art crawl happens the second Friday of EVERY month.  I highly recommend it. and can’t remember the last time I had that much fun!
