We  encourage artists/performers of all kinds to submit their work for a  chance to be in the spotlight at future Community Creative's.  - THIS EVENT IS 19+  Our performers this month include:  Kathryn Merriam (@kathrynmerriam)   Eden Jamie (@edenjamiea) "With  heart tearing, soul bearing lyrics, and tunes that transcend genre,  Eden Jamie fuses her honest poetry with melodies to match - like a hot  pot of alternative music for the soul."  J.K. Matthews (@j.k.matthews)  "J.K. Matthews mixes elements of Alternative, Blues and RnB to form unique soundscapes for story driven songs."  Scorpling Alliance (@scorplingalliance)  "The  female duo dubs their music as, Theatrical Space Rock. You've been  blasted by a laser beam into a collective of past, present and  futuristic sound waves reminiscent of times spent bathing in star dust!"  Moonhead (@moonheadtheband)  "An original funk, pop band from Toronto."   -  Our vendors this month are:  Aleha Darabaka  - Offering readings "Multi-disciplinary  Belly Dancer, performer, healer and oracle reader based out of Toronto.  Aleha embodies Goddess energy through her love of performance,  modelling, oracle reading, colour and sound therapy. She has studied  varied styles of Belly Dancing that she incorporates by fusing them all  into her own unique style. She's always challenging her creativity by  inventing new, original characters and costumes that she puts together  to give her audience a high theatrical and visual experience."  Skully Moulder (@skullymoulder)  "Handmade  Skull planters and skull candles made from repurposed wax. For the guys  and ghouls who like to add a little darkness to their decor."

Using a combination of acrylic paints, resin, epoxy and mixed media on  wood panels."  Sam Waldner (@samfotosynthesis)  "The art that  Sam Waldner creates immediately catches the eye as textured,  multidisciplinary, and layered. The pieces beg the viewer to look from  corner to corner, to examine every slope and spike of paint and colour,  as you never know what's hiding beneath. The work transforms  photographic images into three-dimensional works of art and is based on  the philosophy of integrating Jung's concept of the 'anima' as a way to  self-individuation. This is Waldner's journey of self-discovery and  connecting to the collective unconsciousness."  -  On The  Sides Records will have a merch/info table at side stage.

Since moving to Toronto in 2003, he has been blessed to have shared the stage with many of the city”s most talented musicians! Having grown up in rugged Newfoundland, Phill was exposed to Celtic music and culture at a very early age, but did not truly embrace it until he left his homeland to study music in Toronto and started to miss the sounds that reminded him most of home. Having honed his craft in many a dark pub, Phill quickly found himself in a network of similar minded musicians as he began to craft a sound deep rooted classic rock, power pop, with subtle maritime and Celtic roots.  Phill Hood and The Exclamation (Phill Hood!) is the culmination of years of writing and playing. Backed by a 5 piece band, the Exclamation are a harmonic force to be reckoned with!

EX ØMERTA + SCULLY AND THE CROSSBONES

SCHEDULE:
EX ØMERTA (10:00)
SCULLY AND THE CROSSBONES (11:00 PM)

 Convention and compromise are enemies of creativity. They’re also ideas that the three members of  Ex Ømerta  have outright renounced in their pursuit of undiluted and unadulterated musical exhilaration. The fact is that the Winnipeg-based trio thrives in a setting of controlled chaos, refusing to adhere to any set of rules imposed on them. And they’ve heard their fair share in their time together – drummers can’t be lead singers. Bad Brains and Primus shouldn’t be uttered in the same breath as Queens of the Stone Age and The White Stripes… Ex Ømerta spits in their figurative faces.  Using the urban underground of Winnipeg as the inspirational landscape for their music, this three-piece outfit has carved a sound all their own. dirty, loud, and chaotic, yet sweet, melodic, and quirky all in one. Lyrics of romantic longing, too many late nights, and the odd verse of Kanye-like hubris document the after-hours lifestyle the band has become accustomed to on their path for musical identity.  This is a band that combines the locked-in rock of Royal Blood with the seductive groove of Arctic Monkeys and pure punk rock piss and vinegar in a combustible concoction that defies both definition and decorum. It’s also a band whose members’ individual talents are matched only by their collective focus and ambition.  Make no mistake. they lock into sync and use their musical powers to push the envelope with their songwriting.  From the stage, the band is pure intensity and energy incarnate. The only predictable element is unpredictability. Their name alludes to a code of honour that rejects authority and establishment – including those of the mainstream music industry. Forming in January 2017 and quickly pairing with Montreal-based producer Mike Nash (Blue Rodeo, Mise En Scene), the band’s coming year sees them releasing a four-song EP and two accompanying music videos, as well as undertaking two national tours.  Never compromising originality for convention in anything they touch, Ex Ømerta play only to appease the need for adrenaline-fuelled anarchy in all of us.

ZACH OLIVER

 Zach is a bastard born British boy, from Harlow in Essex, England who is now located in the quaint, modest town of Milton, Ontario, Canada.  His journey as an acoustic singer songwriter began like most skilled musicians; the sheer inspiration to create musical fusion after watching the film School Of Rock for the first time. At the nimble age of 10, he began writing songs. Little did he know that the thirst for creating music would morph into something as rich and panty wetting as the songs he writes and plays now.  His goal is to share his music with you and give you something to connect with, whether it’s your first love, your last soul wrenching heartbreak or just trying to have a good time through the joys of life.   http://www.zacholiver.com

With an impressive musical portfolio, band leader Kam Abdi has opened for well-known artists such as N.E.R.D and Jamiroquai. "Our musical motive is simple. We want people to forget about their worries and inhibitions. We want them to feel the melody within and the harmony around them."
