The hol­i­days are a perfect time for some Di­jon ketchup

Thornhill Post - - Arts -

Since the early ’90s, when a quin­tet of ex­u­ber­ant young mu­si­cians first piled into a MuchMu­sic video booth to croon about buy­ing Di­jon ketchup and what else they’d do with a mil­lion dol­lars, the Bare­naked Ladies has been Toronto’s band. They dis­play a unique abil­ity to pro­duce mu­sic that is in­ven­tive and orig­i­nal, com­bined with smart, funny and of­ten wacky lyrics. It’s kind of their thing, from the early days of “Be My Yoko Ono” to their in­ter­na­tional hit “One Week.” Now a quar­tet of Rosedale’s Ed Robert­son, Kevin Hearn, Jim Creeg­gan and Tyler Ste­wart, the band is back with its 12th stu­dio al­bum, Fake Nudes. Bare­naked Ladies also plays a con­cert at Massey Hall on Dec. 9 with spe­cial guest Ron Sex­smith.
