Event Info

With an amusing mix of pop, rock, sincerity and humor, the Barenaked Ladies are one of Canada's most endearing exports. Over the years, they've been in a constant state of evolution, scoring hit singles in the '90s and contributing theme songs for TV shows like The Big Bang Theory and Odd Job Jack. The band started humbly enough in the late '80s, as just an acoustic duo, featuring vocalists and schoolmates Ed Robertson and Steven Page. The name Barenaked Ladies started out as a joke, but ended up sticking and the fact that it came off slightly scandalous ended up being to their advantage. Adding brothers Jim and Andy Creeggan and drummer Tyler Stewart to the mix, the band self-released The Yellow Tape EP in 1991. It proved to be a big success. Folky singles like "If I Had $1,000,000" and "Brian Wilson" would become some of their most popular songs, but it'd take a few more albums before the Ladies finally topped the charts with 1998's rapping sensation "One Week."
