The City of Hamilton is proud to present a new program this summer that will help bring live music back to our streets and public spaces. The Summer Concert Series features 10 free outdoor concerts with each concert hosted in a different location throughout the city.
On Friday July 15 from 7:00pm to 9:00pm join us for a concert featuring performances by local musicians Fake Shape and MER.
7:00pm Fake Shape
Fake Shape is an Alternative-Indie band from Hamilton, Ontario that formed in September 2018. Each musician offers their own aesthetic, creating music that falls between funk, indie-rock, pop and ambient electronic. They have been writing and recording at Fort Rose in Hamilton and are getting ready to release their debut EP, Night Swim. The songs drift through contrasting mindsets and morphing textures like navigating a solitary swim through dark water. https://linktr.ee/fakeshapemusic
MER is a hip-hop artist born and raised in Hamilton. His introduction to music was at the age of 13, and since then he has been hooked. He spent 15+ years playing drums, guitar, writing songs and learning to produce. Drawing influence from artist like J. Cole, Mac Miller, and Anderson Paak, MER creates music, channeling his passion for drumming, production, and poetry to create a sonic message all of his own. He is currently preparing to release his debut album, 'LIGHTBEAM', on July 22. www.merhiphop.com
