The 9th Annual Hamilton Circle Jerk

Saturday, 2nd September 2017, 7:00 pm - 11:00 pm

It’s the ninth annual Circle Jerk! We all know Hamilton has insanely talented bands, so what better way to celebrate music than to celebrate your own backyard!

The event showcases the diversity of musical talent and genres Hamilton has to offer, with over 10 bands playing on one night. The Circle Jerk features artists from differing genres including reggae, alt-country, indie, electronic, shoegaze, hard core, post rock and anything else you can throw into the mix.

The rules are simple: each band must perform two covers of songs by other Hamilton bands/musicians, past or present, and one of their own. Indeed, seeing the love shown by local musicians for their rich local musical history, expressed by their enthusiastic covering of each other’s songs, hence the appropriately and colourfully titled ‘Circle Jerk’ was born.      Come join the mayhem and malarkey that is the Hamilton Circle Jerk!
