Music Weekends Series – Lee Reed and Tribe of Ansar
January 27 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Lee Reed // https://leereed.bandcamp.com/
LEE REED is a Hamilton O.G. and a veteran of the Kanadian Indie music scene. For 20 years he’s been stomping stages and studios, spewing his unique brand of fiery, anti-capitalist rant-hop. From mouthpiece for the legendary Warsawpack, through to his solo work.. REED has left a dark krylon tag across the landscape of the nation’s Indie HipHop scene, and a jumbo fuel tanker on the fire of revolutionary music worldwide.
The Tribe of Ansar // https://soundcloud.com/thetribeofansar
Saleem Ansari is a 28 year old Hip-Hop poet, whose writing touches upon his personal views of reality, world issues, spirituality and social “norms”. His adoration of life and love of learning is uniquely resonant in all of his work. He aims to inspire the youth to utilize their creative potential, and find new outlets and perspectives through Hip-Hop and Spoken Word. Saleem plans to continue his works through rhyme & rhythm, as well as continue to grow with the artists around him.
Music Weekends is back for a third year to carry you through the post-holiday stretch. Mixing languid, relaxing afternoons with foot stomping, hip wiggling ones, Music Weekends is a 10 week series taking place every Saturday and Sunday afternoon from January 5th to March 10th. All downtown, all organized by local promoters, and all great quality. We’ve even thrown in an extra special one for the kids at The Making Box on Family Day.
Launched in 2017, the series brings together local promoters and is aimed at music lovers who can’t always stay up late enough to enjoy Guelph’s lively late night music scene. Music Weekends welcomes people of all ages who want to sing with their friends, dance with their children, and still be home in time for supper. These events are all ‘Pay What You Can’, and all monies collected go directly back into the local music industry.
