Odds Are

Tonight I will be seeing the band Barenaked Ladies for the 15th time, 20 years after the first time I saw them. They are without question my favorite band, as anyone who knows me well can attest (probably with an eye roll or two, having been subjected to some of my BNL knowledge and various minutia). In 1993, I was a freshman in high school who went to see them with a good friend (who I also saw them with last summer). This year I am leaving my husband and son at home to go see them again, with friends.


It’s kind of nice when something that excites you can endure for that long! I first heard their music in 1992 and I still get just as excited every time a new CD comes out. The latest one, Grinning Streak, is amazing and I can highly recommend it.
