The Barstool Prophets play their first show of 2019 and it's a pre-Canada Day BASH at Overflow!!
Twenty years ago, the second biggest musical export to come out of Ottawa after Alanis Morissette was a band called the Barstool Prophets. After building a buzz in Ottawa with their independent first album and cultivating a homegrown following, the Cornwall-Ottawa rock quartet landed a Toronto-based manager and were courted by record companies. Their major-label debut, Crank, came out on Polygram in August 1995. The album marked the start of some heady times for the band members, recalled singer-songwriter Graham Greer. There were sold-out shows, thousands of albums sold, fans who recognized them in malls, and tours with all the cool Canrock bands of the day. Now more than 30 years later, the BPs are still at it. Its like falling off a bicycle, says Greer with a laugh. Easier than riding a bike, and that made us think, Wow, the muscle memory is still there. Thats the thing, when the four of us play together, we fall into our roles. Its like we never missed a step, both musically and socially.
tickets are $22 in advance and $25 at the door
there is seating for 150 and standing room for over 200 more - first come, first served!
