Who is B-Rad? It doesn’t matter. What does matter is that CAROLE POPE is coming back to Hamilton on November 9, 2019!
CAROLE POPE broke through the mainstream in the late 70s and early 80s with her band ROUGH TRADE, and alongside co-creator Kevan Staples, they challenged the boundaries of art, music, sexuality, and the societal pressures to conform. After an extensive back surgery kept her away for nearly two years, Carole Pope is back on the scene to deliver the flammable lyrics and signature voice that have earned her fans of all ages across four decades.
It only takes seeing SATE in concert once to feel the impact of everything she represents. Toronto’s NOW Magazine described her as having “a tornado of stage presence,” while Lithium’s live reviewer proclaimed, “I can tell you sincerely that she is one of the most resounding artists I’ve ever heard.” When each show inevitably reaches its climax with the indelible image of SATE, fist in the air, and an entire audience raising its hands in unity, the full spectrum of human emotions—anger, joy, vulnerability—suddenly comes into sharp focus through the music. Provocative, Emotive, and Reflective, SATE is the future face of Rock ‘n’ Roll for the 2020s.
MOONLIGHT DESIRES might only play 80s cover songs, but you’d be wrong to dismiss them as just another cover band. Formed by long-time Hamilton, ON musician Trevor Ziebarth (Actor/Writer/Composer on Teletoon’s adult comedy series Sons of Butcher), Moonlight Desires is his ode to the raunchy romances and youthful misadventures of summers past. By re-working synth laden pop hits of the 1980s, Ziebarth manages to turn familiar guilty pleasures into modern, guitar-driven rock anthems. Their new EP “At The Movies” delivers 6 fresh takes on the themes from your favourite freshman flicks, from Goonies to The Breakfast Club. Prepare for the nostalgia to warm your heart while Moonlight Desires melts your face.
