I Heart Hamilton hosts “The Playlist 2.0” benefit at This Ain’t Hollywood


I Heart Hamilton is celebrating its second anniversary with The Playlist 2.0 (Fundraiser for Food4Kids) at This Ain’t Hollywood on Saturday, June 8th.

The Playlist 2.0 will feature performances by New Hands, The Dirty Nil, and San Sebastian. There will also be guest DJ sets by Rockstars For Hire, the DJ team behind the weekly “No Standards Night” parties.

I Heart Hamilton began in May 2011 with the concept, “Be a tourist in your own city.” The goal of the blog is to not only discover Hamilton, but also encourage others to get out and explore the city. From boutiques to bars and everything in-between, blogger Kristin Archer is dedicated to promoting local businesses by visiting and sharing her findings on the blog.

Last year, The Playlist 1.0 was held at This Ain’t Hollywood, and raised $1719 for the Boys and Girls Clubs of Hamilton.

All media are welcome and photo and video opportunities are available. Tickets are $12 and are available at the venue or at Dr. Disc. Doors open at 9 p.m. and the event is 19+.

All proceeds from the night will be donated to Food4Kids.
