Well, okay … he’s not officially a Barenaked Lady, but … you know … once a Lady, always a Lady.
Steven Page is performing at Hotel Elevate on December 8th as part of 104.7’s Ugly Sweater and Eggnog Concert promotion. This is a free show … sort of.
To get in, you have to RSVP on 104.7’s Facebook page and declare how many people you’re bringing with you. So far, I have 6 including me that I’m pretty sure want to go.
Also, you have to wear an ugly sweater. I’m fine with that, other than the blazing heat that will probably be generated by hundreds of sweating bodies in what I’m sure will be a relatively small area. Thankfully, it’s an acoustic set, so I don’t think it’ll be a really high-energy show. ANYway, wear an ugly sweater.
Lastly and certainly most importantly, you have to bring a toy for the Toys for Tots drive. Not only am I okay with this, but I also applaud Steven Page, 104.7, and Hotel Elevate for promoting the concert in this fashion. It’s the perfect time of year to generate a ton of presents for kids who would otherwise go without. My philosophy is that NO child should go without on Christmas. Ever. At all. So this is a great way to help at least a small portion of the needy kids in Salt Lake.
I’m curious to hear his new material live. Barenaked Ladies have done such a phenomenal job as a four-some with their live shows. I hope Steve can step it up as well as his compadres have. We’ll see next Wednesday!
OH!! Yah, so … I know that 104’s website states this, but to be perfectly clear, ALL THE EGGNOG YOU CAN DRINK. Like the Toys for Tots wasn’t enough incentive …
