Downtown Stamford's signature concert series, Alive @ 5, featured the Barenaked Ladies Thursday. Here's a slideshow from the start of their performance.
Guitarist / Vocalist Ed Robertson describes the band's love for shows like Alive@5 on the band's website:
“We built our career playing summer outdoor shows,” Robertson points out. “To be out there with a couple of other great bands bringing a lot of music to people—hey, it’s a nice way to spend the summer. After we put together the ‘Last Summer on Earth” tour last year, tongue firmly in cheek referencing the Mayan calendar, we thought it would be funny to just keep the ‘Last Summer on Earth’ thing going. Let’s enjoy ourselves. Let’s live like it is the last summer on earth. [Insert requisite rim shot here.] Let’s party like it’s 1999.”
