Back up and running this Saturday! Loads of loud-ass bands! Plus, bingo fundraisers between bands, so bring your old lady glasses-on-a-chain!
“Gotta see the show, ‘cause then you’ll know,” sings Ed Robertson on Barenaked Ladies’ chart-topping hit, “One Week,” a song featured on the band’s new live album ‘BNL Rocks Red Rocks,’ recorded at the fabled Morrison, CO, Amphitheater in 2015 during the band’s Last Summer On Earth tour.
That’s as good a description as any about seeing these rock icons in concert, an experience filled with the kind of energy, precision, finesse, and outright celebration among its fans that is a tribute to Barenaked Ladies’ remarkable longevity.
