Fundrais­ing for Bar­ton Street store open­ing

The Hamilton Spectator - - A&E -

A lo­cal cloth­ing com­pany and soap pro­ducer want to help re­vi­tal­ize Hamil­ton’s Bar­ton Street cor­ri­dor start­ing with their own brick-and­mor­tar store. To get there, they’re ask­ing for a bit of help. Vagabond Saints and Steel City Re­flec­tions, which cur­rently op­er­ate only on­line, are host­ing a fundraiser to help cover the cost of ex­pand­ing the busi­ness into a store­front and in­cor­po­rat­ing more lo­cal ar­ti­sans’ prod­ucts.

Club Ab­sinthe, 38 King Wil­liam St., is host­ing the event on Satur­day, Aug. 6 start­ing at 8 p.m. The event fea­tures lo­cal arts ven­dors and live en­ter­tain­ment. MC for the night is tele­vi­sion host Kevin Brauch (Iron Chef Amer­ica, The Thirsty Traveller). En­ter­tain­ment in­cludes co­me­dian Clif­ford My­ers, punk band Bour­bon DK, garage-rock band The Retroac­tion and head­liner Amigo The Devil. Tick­ets are $15 in ad­vance at vagabond­ or $20 at the door.

Vagabond Saints’ ap­parel line in­cludes screen-printed T-shirts, hood­ies and tote bags and a col­lec­tion of quirky and dark prayer can­dles. Steel City Re­flec­tions pro­duces soaps, body creams and nail pol­ish.


Kevin Brauch will MC a fundraiser at Club Ab­sinthe on Aug. 6.
