Barenaked Ladies got their start on MuchMusic’s „Speaker’s Corner” booth at the corner of Queen West and John, and the UltraSound nightclub down the street. Today, those spots are both gone – the booth is in storage and the building that once housed the club is home to a high-end spa.
The Barenaked Ladies have been transformed too: into internationally known chart-stopping pop stars. Drummer Tyler Stewart takes us on a trip down memory lane and reminisces on the grassroots community that once dominated this stretch of Queen Street West – before it was gentrified into an outdoor shopping mall.
Featuring exclusive new footage of the Barenaked Ladies busking on the steps of Pages Books, another Queen Street institution now marked for closure, this tribute to a by-gone era is full of optimism for the future.
