Known for such hits as One Week, Pinch Me, Brian Wilson, If I Had $1,000,000and many more, the band also penned the theme song for the hit CBS series, The Big Band Theory. Their latest album, Grinning Streak, debuted at #10 on the Billboard Top 200. The albums breakout success showcased the single Odds Arewhich shot to #2 on the iTunes Rock Songs Chart. The Barenaked Ladieslive shows have become legendary with their hilarious on-stage banter and impromptu raps, leaving fans ever ready to expect the unexpected.

Violent Femmes formed in 1981 as an acoustic punk band playing on the streets of Milwaukee. Their goal was to rock harder than any other acoustic act on the planet. They were rejected for an audition by a local nightclub and set up outside a Pretenders gig. Chrissie Hynde asked them to open that night's show. This gave the early Femmes a publicity boost which led to them being invited to play in NYC supporting Richard Hell. A rave review in the New York Times led eventually to a record deal, which in turn spawned worldwide touring. Their eponymous first album became the first and only album in Billboard history to enter the charts as a platinum album, eight years after its release. The Femmes became a mainstay of festivals, clubs and theatres in over 30 countries worldwide in the ensuing three decades. Violent Femmes are currently touring in commemoration of the 30th anniversary of the release of their first album.

Colin Hay may be best known as the lead singer for Men At Work, the platinum-selling Australian band that topped worldwide charts in the 80s with anthems like “Down Under,” “Overkill,” and “Who Can It Be Now?” Hay’s justifiably proud of his place in pop history, but since moving to Los Angeles in 1989, he’s made 11 solo albums and is confident that his latest album, Gathering Mercury, is the best of the lot.
