Barenaked Ladies 

With the 100s and the 1000s. Sunday, June 17, at the Plain Dealer Pavilion at Nautica.

To pop fans in 2007, keeping up with the Barenaked Ladies is as embarrassing as monitoring Corky and the Juice Pigs tour posters on eBay. While some do fancy the Canadians' improvised raps and witty stage banter, most of us in the States consider the Ladies a novelty import that died long ago (sometime in the late '90s, that is).

But like vultures circling a corpse, Conan O'Brien, some hungover Peach Pit patrons, and perhaps a few dozen Phi Beta Kappas have been following the band's recent return to its own Desperation Records label. And believe it or not, this activity has sprouted another U.S. tour.

Barenaked Ladies Are Men, the group's latest, was released last February. Although mainstream media largely ignored this happy little disc, its giggle-inducing, fast-singing, lyric-slinging ways are forcing only the most flighty music fans to relive junior high, when they would ride the bus home and sing along to "One Week."
