Last May, we enjoyed one of the best musical nights of The Carleton‘s existence when we presented Barenaked Ladies’ Steven Page with Vancouver’s ODDS. The show sold out in a heartbeat and after an epic, sweaty three and a half hours we thought, “awesome, but that’ll never happen again.” We were wrong! It is going to happen again! This time we’re doing two shows – Tuesday, July 3rd and Wednesday, July 4th. Show time each night will be 8 PM and tickets are $35 advanced or $40 at the door. Tickets will be on sale Friday, March 30th!
I’m assuming we don’t actually have to tell you who Steven Page is, right? Ever heard of Barenaked Ladies?
ODDS are one of the best, and some say criminally underappreciated, bands ever to come out of this country and we just do not get a chance to see them often enough on the East Coast. If you don’t know their stuff, spend some time on the interwebs to learn but, in the meantime, check out this perfect power-pop earworm…
Or, while you’re on YouTube, search around for Heterosexual Man, It Falls Apart, Eat My Brain or, well, the list does go on!
