3am Revelations is located in Vancouver, BC
Kirk Hamilton hates talking about himself, but loves referring to himself in the third person. He founded 3am Revelations in 2009, spinning out of a crappy personal livejournal, dedicating it to his love of Canadian independent music with a focus on local Vancouver favourites. Kirk has written hundreds of live show recaps (he also hates using the word "review") and last year started the weekly podcast 3am Mixtapes, utilizing the skillz he learned in the BCIT Radio Broadcast program. During his tenure there he served as the music director for Evolution1079, interned at 102.7 The Peak/93.7 JRfm, was the recipient of The Red Robinson Achievement Award for Excellence in Radio Broadcasting, and graduated the program with distinction. Since then he has done freelance radio work for stations like The Peak & CBC Radio 3, and co-founded the Podcasts Of Doom podcast network, where he produces Dungeon Punks.
You may know him as 'kirkofdoom' around the internet, and he also enjoys reading comic books, playing video games, and watching great TV shows.

Born and raised in North Van before it was cool, Jess has made the big leap to the big city of Vancouver, but still can’t stay out of the woods for long. Her life is a flux of overdosing on media consumption and endeavoring to go on great outdoor adventures, where she lasts promptly until the weather changes.
She loves Canada, coffee, road trips and music. She got a degree in geography just to justify her large collection of maps. In 2011 she co-founded the Vancouver Music Review, and has been shooting shows ever since. She interned for Hummingbird 604 the same year, where she learned the ropes of managing a big site. In January 2012 Jess began writing for BeatRoute and has written almost every Working for the Weekend column since, moving up to City Editor in Spring 2014 from which she only recently retired.
