Anniversary Party

Raise the Hammer on January 27

Raise the Hammer turns two. It's time to throw a party.

Come join us this Saturday, January 27 to celebrate two years of independent journalism in Hamilton.

Famous Framus

Raise the Hammer is pleased to present Famous Framus for a very special live performance.

Famous Framus' songs, "born on the rusty streets of Steeltown," are "equal chunks of the soul/spirit of Blues and the attitude/energy of Punk".

This Saturday is your chance to hear a uniquely talented Steeltown original.

The Trulee Odd Show

There are few people on this earth for whom sideburns in the shape of lightning bolts seem well-suited, but Trulee Odd, aka Paul Maskell, is one of them.

The content of Saturday's show remains a secret, but a repertoire that includes fire-eating, blindfolded machete juggling, unicycle riding and mini motorcycle stunts should give some clues about what to expect.

Unconfirmed Rumours

There are unconfirmed rumours that the party may also feature a speech by RTH Editor Ryan McGreal, a drunken poetry reading by an RTH contributor, a live performance on guitar by a well-known Hamiltonian (yes, another one), and perhaps even a visit from a high-ranking city official or two.

The only way you'll find out is by stopping by. See you there.
