Are you an avid show-goer? Are you constantly looking for concerts in the Hamilton area? Do you like supporting local artists and venues? Do you find yourself too lazy to do the research? We’ve been there. That’s why we started ‘Steel Jams’.

After receiving awesome feedback from our test run back in February, Steel Jams is here to stay. With help from our music department, we’ll be keeping you up to date on some great shows happening right here in The Hammer. This month, music volunteer Natalie Clark has picked a handful of shows she’d love for you to check out. Here are your hand-picked listings for the month of November.

Said the Whale @ The Casbah, Hamilton, ON

$31 - $81, Doors at 7PM, ALL AGES

Said the Whale is a trio that originated in Vancouver, BC. Their music style is a mix of indie/alternative rock, with the slightest bit of folk. The JUNO Award-winning band will be performing an intimate show at The Casbah on November 30th! Definitely a show to see in my opinion.

Label: Arts & Crafts Productions

Newest Album: Cascadia

Album Hits: UnAmerican, Record Shop

Personal Fave: Wake Up- Being a fan of Said the Whale, this was a hard one for me to pick! If you’re looking for a song to jam to, Wake Up is what I recommend.

Listen here on Spotify!

You can also tune in to The Throwdown on Thursday’s from 2:00pm - 3:00pm where we feature concert listings every second Thursday of the month! Are you as excited as we are? Which concert has you counting down the days? Let us know!
