The Hamilton Spectator - - A&E -


Alan Reid, left, and Rob van Sante are for­mer mem­bers of the long-run­ning Scot­tish folk group The Bat­tle­field Band. Reid, a founder of the Bat­tle­field Band, is known for re­search­ing his­tor­i­cal and con­tem­po­rary events and pour­ing it into his songs.

Corin Ray­mond is a Hamilton-based singer-song­writer and storyteller whose al­bum “Hobo Jun­gle Fever Dreams” won a nom­i­na­tion at this year’s Juno Awards. Ray­mond is also known for piec­ing to­gether the largest pri­vate col­lec­tion of Cana­dian Tire money in his­tory.

Let’s hope that Joey Keith­ley keeps los­ing elec­tions so that his sem­i­nal Van­cou­ver punk band D.O.A. can keep record­ing and tour­ing. It’s doubt­ful that Joey could find the time if he ever won a seat in the B.C. leg­is­la­ture. D.O.A. re­turns to This Ain’t Hol­ly­wood, 345 James St. N., on Sun­day, Oct. 15, with Ed­mon­ton’s Ray­gun Cow­boys, Hamilton’s Get off the Cop and Barbed Wire Braces. Doors at 7 p.m. $20 ad­vance or $25 at the door.


Raleigh is a Cal­gary indie-rock blends straight-up hooks with ex­per­i­men­tal sonic sculp­tures. Its new al­bum “Pow­er­house Bloom” is a stu­dio tri­umph. You can see how well the band re­pro­duces it live on Tues­day, Oct. 17, at This Ain’t Hol­ly­wood, 345 James St. N., with Adrian Un­der­hill and Blunt Chunks. 8 p.m. $10 ad­mis­sion.


The new al­bum by Pack A.D. is called “Doll­house,” but Becky Black and Maya Miller aren’t the type who play with dolls. The Van­cou­ver power duo plays mod­ern punk dystopia. The new al­bum is their best yet. The Pack A.D. per­forms Wed­nes­day, Oct. 18, at Mills Hard­ware, 95 King St. E. Doors open at 7 p.m. Show at 8. $15 ad­vance; $18 at the door
