Barenaked Ladies... Seriously!

Tonight we all went to the Barenaked Ladies concert. The BNL's for those of you who don't know are a famous Canadian band... great, great band! Their most famous song is "If I Had A Million Dollars" and they have dozens of household tunes to jam pack their concert. Funnily enough the last time I saw them live was also here in Ottawa during Winterlude 3 years ago... weird ;-)

Anyways two nights in a row at Corel Centre Scotia Bank Place ("the SCANK") as we also hit the sens game last night (4-3 overtime win baby!! :-)

The SCANK as it started to fill up:



The Ladies rocking and rolling:



It's hard to see in the pic below but during the line "I just made you say underwear" (Pinch Me) someone threw their underwear on stage and Steve put it on his guitar... hopefully there wasn't a brown landing strip ;-)



The Ladies like to mix in banter, dance and rap into their sets, here they toast Winterlude to the tude of "Wonderful Christmas Time":



The band goes to New York to play Letterman tomorrow, and so do I (go to NY that is!). 6AM leaving time, uh... rough. Next from the "big apple"!! :-)

Update: Holy cow! After writting this post I started checking out some BNL clips on YouTube, I can't believe some of the old vids of the Ladies from when they first hit it big! Haven't they, and us all, grown up so much since then... wow, take a look at one of my personal favs from the first album "Lovers In A Dangerous Time":



Update 2: The song that broke them mainstream (in Canada), "If I Had A Million Dollars":



Update 3: A montage of song clips from the current concert tour, check out the coreography making fun of boy bands starting at 7:20, hilarious!



Update 4: Another song from the greatest hits "Brian Wilson". Drove downtown in the rain...



Update 5: Another great some, another one of my favorites "Old Appartment":
