Hamilton's DR. DISC Announces “Raise the Roof” Concert Series, 2013 Edition

Dr. Disc, the iconic downtown Hamilton music store, will once again be “Raising the Roof” by hosting free, outdoor live musical performances outside the store at 20 Wilson Street (at James) to coincide with Art Crawl Friday (the second Friday of every month) through October this year.

The purpose of these concerts is to:

  • feature local, independent musical artists of all genres and expose them to as widespread audience as possible – for FREE!
  • increase awareness of and highlight the diversity and vitality of the independent Hamilton music scene.
  • encourage the public to come to downtown Hamilton to experience all that it has to offer.
  • to give back to the community for the support it has shown for Dr. Disc since the doors opened back in 1991.

The next 2013 session takes place this Friday, June 14 between the hours of 6 and 11pm. A listing of the participating musical artists is below.

Dr. Disc, located at 20 Wilson Street just steps away from James Street North, has become a cornerstone of the Hamilton music scene. The store first opened its doors 22 years ago as an independent alternative to the chain record stores and has survived due to a wide selection of music, excellent customer service, a focus on local artists, and the best special order system in Southern Ontario.
