Hamilton's Junior Boys perform on Q

Hamilton-based electronica combo, Junior Boys, perform their song 'Work' from their record Begone Dull Care in Studio Q with Jian Ghomeshi.

Do you need more proof that Jian Ghomeshi host of Q on CBC Radio really digs Hamilton?

Hamilton's electropop stars Junior Boys let loose on Ghomeshi's show Thursday with their groovy tune 'Work' from their record Begone Dull Care in Studio Q. You can listen to the entire performance on this page.

The Junior Boys, Jeremy Greenspan and Matt Didemus, are CBC Radio faves. Here's a link their playlist at CBC Music.

Ghomeshi was in town reliving the era of the mixtape as his book tour hit the Lincoln Alexander Centre on Oct. 19. His book 1982 was released in October and is a memoir that tells his story — as a Persian-Canadian growing up in a largely white middle-class neighbourhood in Thornhill, Ont. 

"It's based on a 14-year-old who wants to be Bowie. That was me," he said.
