Home Grown Hamilton

This past spring/summer (2012) marked the return of the first POTL's residency, since it's days with 
The Ambient Ping (1999-2005), at Home Grown Hamilton, Hamilton Ont.
We started on Tuesdays and then moved to Mondays and had a great time there. As we all previous POTL's events, the nights were recorded and clips from some of those nights are up on our SoundCloud Page.

Currently all sound clips are from our residency shows at HomeGrown Hamilton
featuring various musicians.

All of our shows are recorded for documentation and some other fun projects 
that we have planned for the near future!

We'll keep this brief as there will be many more posts about specific past events with more detail.

The Planet of the Loops was founded back in Fall 1998.
It was presented to the public by
Kurt Swinghammer, Trevor Shaiken, Tamara Williamson and Andrew Aldridge.
The location... the now defunct Holy Joe's, Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

It wasn't too soon after that the Planet had officially been claimed
and the population began to grow...
