Hey Folks,

The man who runs Spherical Productions, Joey Balducchi, was hired as festival manager for the Hamilton Music Awards, which is happening this week-end, and his job was to secure all the music venues as part of the HMA showcases, and then build stellar line-ups from the nominated acts, as well as incorporating other fantastic local acts to round out each bill, and below are those venue showcases

NOTE: the McIntyre Theatre Showcases were booked by the HMA head honcho, Jean Paul Gaulthier, as well, Brodie booked the Nov 17 HMA showcase at the Casbah, and Marko booked the Nov 17 HMA showcase at Club Absinthe.

I would recommend everyone who is interested in checking out more than one HMA showcase to buy the HMA wristband, they are $19.12, and they get you in to see any specific acts in any of the venues on Nov 16 and Nov 17, so I suggest to get a wristband, look at the acts below, figure out every act you want to see, and make the night an adventure, since all the venues are walking distance throughout downtown (except McIntyre Theatre), and if driving, please don’t drink and drive or have a designated driver.

Here is all the ticket info: HMA Tickets
