— We’re beyond excited and honoured to have the privilege to perform in celebration of The Zoetic Theatre’s 90th year! Our earliest memories as a band exist within the walls of The Zoetic, so it goes without saying that it holds a very special place in each of our hearts. Well before our first official show or the release of our first EP, we spent two chaotically-stressful-yet-beautifully-inspiring and amazing days at the theatre filming our video series “The Zoetic Sessions”.
Beginning with the release of “Silhouettes” and concluding with “Zeitgeist”, this collection of videos ultimately represents the origin of LITEYEARS and the questionably-insane ambition that the band is built upon. At the mercy of a zero dollar budget, these videos were only made possible because of the help of so many of our selfless, amazing and talented friends and family members. In a mere few hours, we had more than 60 Hamilton-based musicians join us on The Zoetic’s stage and create the indescribable magic and unity that only large-scale artistic collaborations can. Hamilton is a music town through and through and we’re all lucky to be able to call it home. With open arms, the city has long embraced music and art of all styles, genres and mediums from artists of all walks of life and given them a voice. For 90 years, The Zoetic Theatre has given those voices the opportunity to be heard.
Come celebrate our favourite hometown venue with us and an amazing line-up of local artists on November 25th and help us prove why Hamilton is the best city in the world!
Hailing from Hamilton, Ontario, LITEYEARS is a pop band on the rise that’s been quickly making a name for themselves on Canada’s national stage. Drawing from a diverse sonic palette ranging from cinematic orchestral arrangements reminiscent of a Hans Zimmer film score to the electronic sensibilities of modern pop music, LITEYEARS has created an honest representation of themselves and their musical tastes: high energy, anthemic alternative-pop with depth.
Mike Maas & The Late Night Lineup:
Led by Hamilton native and veteran singer-songwriter Mike Maas, Mike Maas & The Late Night Lineup is a confident pop rock blend of earthy acoustic and echoing ambient soundscapes. With Maas’ powerful and emotive voice at the forefront, the band’s infectious and masterfully-written ballads draw influence from the likes of Coldplay, U2 and The Beatles.
Wild Night hail from the smoke stacks of Hamilton, Ontario. They play rock and roll like their lives depend on it because, while they were growing up, they did. Carrying the echoes of their parents’ records, Wild Night are out to revive the heart and spirit of everything good that is gone.
Since 1927, The Zoetic Theatre has been a landmark on Hamilton Mountain offering everything from vaudeville to cinema to live performance. Alongside the theatre’s 90th anniversary, The Zoetic itself heads into its fifth year as an arts and entertainment organization. Join us for this live concert celebration!
