Quarter in the Bag - Playin' Friday Night at This Aint Hollywood

This Hamilton trio has had a busy summer playing the Festival of Friends and Dundas Cactus Festival among other various gigs throughout the province. Quarter in the Bag also released their debut self titled EP. They’re a heavy and groovy power trio. The opening track “Underdog” is a rippin’ tune that’ll get your head bangin and mouth hummin’ the riff for days to come. The hectic breakdown will have you flippin’ tables immediately…respectfully of course. You can see Quarter in the Bag live in Hamilton at This Ain’t Hollywood on Friday September 15th along with Flamingo Bay, the Rickaneers and the Beach Bats. – Kris Gies


This fuzz trio out of Toronto has one of the biggest buzzes goin on right now. Hot Lips consists of synth, fuzz bass and drums. The female vocals give it an extra bad ass vibe as it fits in perfectly with the thumping drums and noisy fuzz. “American Hardcore” is their first single and it won’t be long until its included in a thriller or horror movie soundtrack. Very loud with some elements from industrial and electronic music. Their EP release show is Friday September 8th at the Baby G. The Crooked, Rue Bella and Mad Machines playing in support. – Kris Gies



Earlier this year The Rickaneers released their first full length record.  The self titled LP contains 10 tracks, juiced up with some greasy garage vibes. Along with the dirt however they find ways to mix in some 90’s alt rock influences which is very prominent in “Garden of Eden”. Speaking of 90’s, they also have another pop-rocker on this LP called “90’s”. Very groovy. The Rickaneers LP is part dirty, part catchy, fun for the whole family. They will be featured on Y108 in Hamilton on Monday September 11 at 11PM ahead of their show at This Ain’t Hollywood on September 15th along with Flamingo Bay, Quarter in the Bag and The Beach Bats. – Kris Gies



Rock n Roll like it used to be back in the day. 70’s guitar rock with big vocals and lots of energy. That’s the Do Good Badlies. “Atlantic Ocean” from their most recent record “Electric Nights” has a laid-back southern rock feel. It would be great to crank up out by the lake….or ocean I guess if we were close enough to that. Very beer drinkable. That’s what it’s all about…especially if you’re rockin’ with em live. Which you can do on Thursday (Sept 7) at the Bovine Sex Club with Goodnight Sunrise, Rynheart and Hudson Say for TIFF Opening Night. – Kris Gies


Chladny is a solo bedroom project that describes itself as “pretty funny and pretty sad”. They released an EP this past June called “The Boy Is Dead” which is available digitally or on cassette through their bandcamp page. The tune “Drugs” is a very chilled out track. Folk rock mixed with some slacker rock vibes. The melody is easy to grasp and the lead guitar licks over top really add a gentle aura to the song. Fire these tunes up one day when you want to relax and feel good about whatever you’re up to. – Kris Gies
