DJ Dopey at Discography Halloween Session at Baltimore House on Sunday, October 27!
DISCOGRAPHY is Hamilton’s first-ever evolving and constantly changing DJ event featuring a rotating stable of established local DJs that have each either worked at or have been directly influenced by Dr. Disc. The DJs are hand-picked and take DJing back to its roots by playing ONLY vinyl records! No laptops allowed!
Each session takes place every second Sunday at Baltimore House, 43 King William St, and the next DISCOGRAPHY session is a special Halloween edition on Sunday, October 27. The special, headlining DJ for the night is DJ DOPEY, who was crowned DMC World Champion in 2003, which is basically like winning gold in the Olympics of DJing! (To see DJ DOPEY‘s incredible turntablist showcase that won him the title of “World’s Best DJ”, click HERE.)
Also appearing that night is the talented and vinyl-friendly “DJ-about-town” DONNA LOVEJOY who has opened for the likes of Maylee Todd, Javelin, and New Hands. She has also rocked the crowd at The Brain, This Ain’t Hollywood and the Art Gallery of Hamilton’s World Film Festival.
DISCOGRAPHY is specifically for people who love music, versus people that just like “songs,” and it is held on an off-night to allow the best, most popular DJs who play regularly on weekend nights to perform – and play what they want – to a knowledgeable and appreciative audience. You’ll hear anything from Jay-Z to Joy Division; Skrillex to The Supremes.
Due to the limited capacity at Baltimore House it is recommended that you come early to avoid disappointment. (The Thanksgiving Long Weekend DISCOGRAPHY session reached capacity at 11:30 pm!) Doors open at 10:00 pm.
The complete DJ line up for
DISCOGRAPHY - Session Nine: Attack of the Killer DJs,

• give back to the community for the support it has shown for Dr. Disc since the doors opened back in 1991.

Dr. Disc Stage schedule for Supercrawl Saturday, September 14
This month, instead of our usual ‘Raise the Roof’ rooftop concert series that occurs on Art Crawl Fridays, Dr. Disc and I Heart Hamilton are programming the talent on Saturday, September 14 for a Supercrawl stage to be set up in the city parking lot adjacent to the store (HERE, at Wilson and James streets), between the hours of 4:00 and 11:00 pm.
Where else but in Hamilton will you find a musical collaboration brought about by a Twitter interaction featuring selected members of our world-renowned Hamilton Philharmonic Orchestra performing live in concert with Hachey the MouhtPEACE, Hamilton’s foremost human beatboxer?! This will prove to be the most interesting musical pairing happening this Supercrawl weekend!
In case you don’t know what a human beatboxer is, check out Hachey the MouthPEACE at work building rhythms and beats with only vocally generated sounds HERE; and also a more musical composition by Hachey HERE.
> 5:05 pm: Allegories > Read more HERE.
