In light of the steady rise in COVID-19 cases, elevated risk associated with variants of concern, and out of abundant caution and care for the health and well-being of artists, staff and the wider community, Supercrawl will be rescheduling its spring livestream series.
All previously purchased livestream tickets will be valid for new dates in May and June. We will unveil additional details on the rescoped events shortly, and look forward to producing these events once it is safer for us to do so.
Watch Supercrawl’s socials in the coming weeks for details on additional 2021 programming!

CANADIAN ROCK ICONS DANKO JONES ANNOUNCE 25TH ANNIVERSARY LIVESTREAM SHOWS AT HAMILTON’S BRIDGEWORKS
Danko Jones exists to rock. It’s his innate, guttural mode of expression. His daily ritual. His life’s work. Now, after 25 years, 10 albums, world tours with the rock gods like Ozzy Osbourne, Guns ‘n’ Roses and Motörhead, the band announces their return to the stage with two shows at Hamilton, Ontario’s Bridgeworks.
Acclaimed hard rock trio Danko Jones has earned their place as Canadian music legends. The group has gone gold and platinum internationally, had seven singles crack the US Active Rock Top 40 and had their single “Gonna Be A Fight Tonight” used as the WWE official theme song for the 2015 Royal Rumble.
Over the past 25 years, the band has made a name for themselves as a must-see live band and after a year with no shows, they’re itching to get back out there. Danko Jones, the band’s frontman and namesake comments, “2021 is the 25th anniversary of our band. 25 years of non-stop performing, touring and recording. To celebrate our silver jubilee, we are holding our first ever livestreams and we may even be premiering some new material… This has been the longest break in the history of our band so without a doubt, these livestreams will be like letting wild animals out of cages. Are you ready? We’re goddamn ready.”
Presented by Supercrawl and Exclaim! Magazine and produced in association with Metal Sucks, 94.9 The Rock Toronto, Y108 Hamilton, Rebel 101.7 Ottawa, CJAY 92 Calgary, 100.3 The Bear Edmonton and CFOX-FM Vancouver, the livestream shows will take place on Friday March 12, 2021 at 8:00PM EST // 5:00PM PST in North America, and on Saturday March 13th at 8:00PM CET in Europe, but you will be able to tune in to both shows from anywhere in the world. Tickets and information for North America can be found at THIS location and for Europe HERE!
Western Canadian songwriter Colter Wall is a weathered baritone that spins narratives on the stage. He sings traditionals known to most, historic reverie, and poignant originals, raising both goosebumps and beers throughout the evening. It’s a nostalgic atmosphere and a simple yet colourful experience.
On his third album, Western Swing & Waltzes and Other Punchy Songs, Wall’s 10-track ode to the themes and labours of western life, picks up where his last album left off, with a reverence for his “working cowboy kin.”
Recorded in the heart of Texas at Yellow Dog Studios, Wall’s new album features his own band hot off of a North American tour. Along the Blanco River bank, outside the small town of Wimberley, Colter and his boys recorded a collection of cowboy songs, old and new.
On the album is title track “Western Swing & Waltzes,” first heard on his Austin City Limits performance. Also included among the tracks is the Stan Jones’ classic “Cowpoke,” a cover with increasing popularity among fans. Featured on most tracks are stronghold sidemen like Patrick Lyons, a multi-instrumentalist who textures grooves with his standard pedal steel guitar, dobro, mandolin, and a few surprises. Prominent harmonica player Jake Groves graces many songs with haunting, long trails and leads. While longtime bass player, heard on Wall’s previous two albums, Jason Simpson, alongside drummer Aaron Goodrich, wrangles the band’s rhythm. A handful of friends including Emily Gimble and Doug Moreland lend their talents in addition to Wall’s live band sound.
Unlike his previous albums, Wall produced Western Swing & Waltzes and Other Punchy Songs on his own. His band. His choices. It was a decision that diversified and put some giddy-up in the album’s sound.
About the album, Wall said “these songs are punchier than I am.” With an increasing presence in the Western Lifestyle world, Wall is, however, no slouch on the ranch. As any new cattleman would, Wall adds to his herd, as he does his musical background.
While we are deeply passionate about live event culture, the safety of event participants will always be paramount in our planning. We are doIng our part to make it more bearable to stay connected even as we remain distanced. In light of the upward trend in COVID-19 cases across the GTHA, and out of abundant caution and care for the health and well-being of artists, audiences, staff and the wider community, we will be shifting focus from live performance to livestreaming events moving forward. As always, thanks to the artists and fans who so much want to return to the experience of live performance. Thank you for your understanding and support, and we look forward to seeing you online as we continue to deliver great streaming performances.

In June, Supercrawl festival organizers announced that they would be rescoping event programming in response to pandemic-related public health considerations. While the massive free event, which drew more than 250,000 fans in 2019, will not be taking place in 2020, organizers are producing this fall’s slate of special events in its place. Supercrawl Productions recently wrapped a sold-out weekend of open-air music as part of the six-show Skytop Live Concert Series, which ran September 24-27, 2020.
Supercrawl announces a special weekend of music in downtown Hamilton — a six-concert series.

Thursday and Friday’s dates will be evening concerts (6-10pm°), while Saturday and Sunday will feature separately ticketed matinee (12-4pm*) and evening (6-10pm°) concerts.

Choir! Choir! Choir! will not be appearing this Saturday, September 26 as originally scheduled.

C!C!C! ticketholders may request refunds until 12:00pm Friday September 25.
All seating is reserved. Purchases will be limited to four (4) tickets, and all buyers will be required to present government-issued photo ID upon entry to confirm identity.

Each concert will be strictly limited to 100 physically distanced attendees, each of whom will be assigned a reserved seat spaced 2 metres apart from others and receive a face mask upon entry as part of the ticket price. The series has been designed and produced in accordance with public health best practices and has been vetted by City staff.
All attendees will be screened by questionnaire and touchless infrared thermometer prior to entry. Individuals are asked to self-assess on day of event and remain at home if they are experiencing symptoms such as fever, cough, difficulty breathing, or flu-like symptoms; please consult the Government of Ontario’s online self-assessment tool if in doubt. Those with symptoms, who have been in contact with someone with COVID-19, or who have told to self-isolate, should not attend. We also encourage attendees to download and use the federal government’s free COVID Alert app so that they may be notified directly if they have been in close contact with someone who was contagious with COVID-19.
Attendees must self-certify that they do not have COVID-19 symptoms, have not been diagnosed with or had direct contact with a known or suspected COVID-19 case in the past 14 days, and will comply with the event’s safety policies and procedures including wearing face coverings, physical distancing, and other determined requirements. Violation of policies will constitute cause for removal from the event.
Accessibility corridors have been provided to facilitate audience flow and safely allow entry and exit. Physical distancing measures will also be in place around access to public washrooms, along with enhanced cleaning and disinfection protocols.
Ticketholders must maintain physical distancing by staying at least 2 metres (6 feet) apart from others outside their household or social circle.
In June, Supercrawl festival organizers announced that they would be rescoping event programming in response to pandemic-related public health considerations. While the massive free event, which drew more than 250,000 fans in 2019, will not be taking place in 2020, organizers have been working on a slate of special events starting this fall. In addition to this ticketed series, Supercrawl organizers are working on an additional series of concerts and cultural events running October to March.
