Rock n’ Roll is alive and well in Hamilton!
This is in no small part thanks to the infamous This Ain’t Hollywood. A former pub turned rock n’ roll bar in 2009, This Aint Hollywood has grown to become an integral part of Hamilton’s live music scene. Adopting the name of the classic 1981 album by Hamilton’s own punk rock group The Forgotten Rebels, and with a heart for Hamilton music from co-owners Lou Molinaro, Glen “The Hamilton Kid” and Jodie Faulman, This Aint Hollywood embodies what it means to rock in the Hammer.
Attracting all types of acts, their stage hosts nightly shows featuring local and international talent alike. Look no further for your fix of live rock in Hamilton. Whether you’re from the North end or not, This Aint Hollywood should become a staple for your live music expeditions.
Located at Murray Street and James Street North, the venue oozes with a signature brand of punk rock style. From the collection of unique rock n’ roll memorabilia covering the walls to the dimly lit interior, the venue’s atmosphere puts you in the mood for some head-bobbing tunes. When the acts take the stage, the small space soon buzzes with electric intensity and it becomes impossible to sit still.

More than just a venue, This Aint Hollywood’s reach into Hamilton’s music culture extends beyond its stage. Co-owner Lou Molinaro has been a part of the Hamilton Music Strategy since its inception. One of its original co-chairs, alongside Supercrawl/Sonic Unyon’s Tim Potocic, Molinaro plays key roles in achieving the strategy’s goals of unifying Hamilton’s music venues and cultivating music appreciation and local talent within the city.
