BNL’s Ed Robertson Performing “I.S.S. (Is Somebody Singing)” with Chris Hadfield, Commander of the International Space Station
Canadian pop-rock troupers the Barenaked Ladies light up cranial lobes with their brainy pop, maintaining their reputation as an engaging live act with tight yet playful musicianship and a gregarious repartee with their adoring audiences. Their hook-laced lyrical patter and bookworm wit steered '90s hits such as “One Week,” “The Old Apartment,” and “If I Had $1,000,000” into perpetual ubiquity and later into a greatest-hits collection, Hits from Yesterday & the Day Before, released in 2011. Celebrating their 25th anniversary, the Barenaked Ladies return to the stage once more, thumbing their noses at the Mayans with their second Last Summer on Earth tour. This time, they’re supporting their newest compilation album of rarities, Stop Us If You’ve Heard This One Before. Also, singer and guitarist Ed Robertson’s voice recently reached a new level of orbit as he recorded a collaboration with astronaut Col. Chris Hadfield, who played guitar and sang from aboard the International Space Station.
Guster with the Guster String Players Performing ""Rocketship"" at Tarrytown Music Hall
Formed by a trio of Tufts University freshmen in 1991, Guster's sound was simple: acoustic guitars, hand percussion, and insightful lyrics delivered through the crystal-clear harmonies of Adam Gardner and Ryan Miller. That’s not to say their sound hasn’t evolved over the years, though; for example, ""Satellite"" from 2006's Ganging Up on the Sun, for example, leads off with a rambling synth line that wraps the entire song in a tumbleweed, making for a distinctly Western vibe. The release of a live acoustic album in January 2013, recorded with the Guster String Players, brings them back to their roots while proving their electricity-free bona fides and continued ability to grow as a band.
Ben Folds Five
It’s no secret Ben Folds Five is actually a trio, but the band had no members for nearly a decade, having split amicably in 2000. Solo outings were well received, but it wasn’t the same as the magical combination of fuzz bass, jazzed-out drum fills, and rollicking piano, offset by a voice that fluctuated between bashful and angst ridden. The Five teamed up for what was meant to be a one-night-only concert in 2008. That one night led to a full-fledged reunion in 2012 and the release of their fourth full-length album, The Sound of the Life of the Mind. Live, fans can expect to hear the freewheeling newer cut “Michael Praytor, Five Years Later,” as well as exuberant classics such as “Army” and, of course, introspective numbers such as “Brick” off the now-classic Whatever and Ever Amen.
