Following a successful, socially-distanced series of ticketed concert events on top of the York Boulevard Parkade, Hamilton’s Supercrawl has announced a follow-up series of free admission concerts to take place throughout the remainder of 2020; and the lineup is seriously exciting.
Limited to just 50 attendees per performance to accommodate social distancing, Supercrawl’s special Bridgeworks Concert Series – sponsored by TD Bank Group – will take place within Hamilton’s new Bridgeworks event space and performance venue at the corner of Caroline North and Barton West.
The series kicks off with headlining soloist Tim Baker (of indie rock band Hey Rosetta!) featuring special guest performers on October 10th for both a matinee and evening performance.
After that comes Indigenous singer-songwriter iskwē – a Juno Award nominee and Polaris Music Prize longlisted finalist – with matinee and evening performances on Saturday, November 7th.
Then, November 21st features acclaimed Toronto-based rapper Haviah Mighty, whose 2019 debut album 13th Floor received the prestigious Polaris Music Prize that same year. Haviah Mighty will be joined by Toronto singer-songwriter Nyssa as opener.
Finally, the series closes on November 28th with a concert by Hamilton’s own pop-rock outfit Ellevator, joined by alternative rock group King Park, also from right here in the Hammer.
Though these exciting all-ages concert events are free to attend, tickets will still need to be booked due to the extremely limited seating in the interest of public health and safety. Tickets will be released on a show-by-show basis, with Tim Baker’s matinee and evening concerts officially available to book through Eventbrite on Friday, October 2nd at 10 am.
All attendees will be required to wear masks at all times and adhere to physical distancing guidelines while inside the venue. Seating will be in pre-assigned table configurations, and only members of the same social bubbles will be permitted to sit together.
