I Heart Hamilton Celebrates Another Birthday With A Fundraiser

Hamilton, Ontario – I Heart Hamilton celebrates its second anniversary with The Playlist 2.0 (Fundraiser for Food4Kids) at This Ain’t Hollywood on Saturday, June 8th, 2013.

The Playlist 2.0 will feature performances by all Hamilton talent – electro-organic act Illitry, electronic-rock band New Hands, punk rockers The Dirty Nil, and pop-rock band San Sebastian. The night will also feature guest DJ sets by Rockstars For Hire, the team behind the weekly “No Standards Night” parties.

I Heart Hamilton began in May 2011 with the concept, “Be a tourist in your own city.” The goal of the blog is to not only discover Hamilton, but encourage others to get out and explore the city. Blogger Kristin Archer is dedicated to promoting local businesses by visiting and sharing her findings on the blog. “From hearing such positive feedback from business owners and people in the community, it’s rewarding to know that I have contributed to the ongoing rejuvenation of the city and have expanded people’s awareness of all that Hamilton has to offer,” Archer says.

In particular, the arts and culture scene is an important part of that rejuvenation. Archer adds, “I’m a strong supporter of the local music scene and really believe in the talent in Hamilton. If I can help to showcase it, I’m honoured to do so.”

I Heart Hamilton is also used as a platform to give back to the community. Last summer, The Playlist 1.0 was held at This Ain’t Hollywood, which raised $1719 for The Boys and Girls Clubs of Hamilton. Featured performers included Canadian Winter, New Hands, The Ascot Royals, and The Dinner Belles, with guest DJ sets by members of Young Rival.

All media are welcome and photo and video opportunities are available. Tickets are $12 and are available at the venue or at Dr. Disc. Doors open at 9 p.m. and the event is 19+.
