Creepy Crawlers


(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!


(buskers, babies, dogs, clothing vendors, performance artists, vintage dealers – a smorgasbord of things happening!)


(really simple, yet effective displays by artists)


(knickknacks galore!)


(I saw someone walking around with the Big Lebowski later on in the evening…YES)


(a great seniors quartet – they drew quite a crowd!)


(a market inside the art crawl event – local artisans – mainly photos and jewelry)


(Matt Jelly was capitalizing on Hamilton Nostalgia)


(vintage vinyl and books – loads of jems in there!)


(you couldn’t have got a more perfect forecast for this months 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!

(a little retro rave action – this was an old school raver with his glow sticks – notice the hula hoops – and there were rings pops and fun fur pants! WHAAA?!  )
