93.3 CFMU, the MSU’s campus and community radio station, proudly presents the eighth edition of Everybody Dance Now: Songs from Hamilton. This double-disc set features great songs by 39 local artists, and features everything from techno to folk rock. Everybody Dance Now: Songs from Hamilton Volume One was released in September 2006 to great success. The disc series has consistently made the Top 50 in Canadian national campus charts, breaking the top 10 two years ago.
Everybody Dance Now: Volume 8 is being released in conjunction with Welcome Week 2013 and Supercrawl (a major arts and music festival in Hamilton’s art gallery district on James Street North). As per every year, the disc will not be for sale, but offered free in limited quantities. It will also be distributed to national press and radio in order to give these amazing Hamilton artists more exposure nation-wide.
It’s a great primer on what the Hamilton music scene has to offer, from Mac bands (Of Gentlemen & Cowards) to Mac alumni (Arkells) as well as Polaris Prize winners, internationally known acts, and local up-and-comers.
