Top Five Must-See Phoenix Shows This Week

Are you aware just how big a deal Barenaked Ladies' first album was in Canada? Wikipedia tells me it "topped the Canadian charts for eight consecutive weeks" and that 80,000 copies of Gordon were sold in the first 24 hours.

We didn't include them in the Top Five Must-See Phoenix Shows this week -- half because if you're the kind of person who wants to go see BNL, you didn't need me to remind you, half because we're still heartbroken that Steven Page left the band -- but meditate, while you read on, on the idea of the Barenaked Ladies being a country's biggest pop superstars at any moment in human history.
