The Something Else! Festival of Creative Music in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada reached the four-year milestone in June 2017 by offering four days of exciting music by North American, European, and Asian musicians. Zula Music and Arts Collective presented the festival that played at three acoustically friendly venues with both afternoon and evening offerings. A unique feature of this festival was the use of ad hoc groups selected by curator Cem Zafir from various members of the regularly performing acts. These impromptu matchings played between each of the four scheduled afternoon sets on Saturday and again between the four on Sunday afternoon. Ken Vandermark was the Artist in Residence, and his appearance as a soloist, in duet with trumpeter Nate Wooley, with his DKV Trio, with Eloping with the Sun, plus his being featured in two ad hoc collectives furnished the tone for a continually flowing stream of challenging music over the span of the event.
