Barenaked Ladies Appearing at Stage AE; Pirates vs. Giants (Mon., 6/20/16)

1) Barenaked Ladies“One Week”: an ironic rap performed by Canadians, detailing a seven-day argument through nearly unintelligible lyrics. On paper, sounds like a failure, but as a 1998 single, it worked pretty darn well, spending (ahem) one week atop the Billboard Hot 100. Far from being a one-hit wonder, Barenaked Ladies have many other recognizable singles, like “If I Had $1,000,000” and, yes, the theme for CBS’ “The Big Bang Theory.” Barenaked Ladies began in Scarborough, Ontario in 1988. Although different members have come and gone, co-founder Ed Robertson is still the lead vocalist. (Bassist Jim Creeggan is the band’s other remaining original member.) In 2015, the band headlined Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Morrison, Colorado. They recorded the show, and this May released it as BNL Rocks Red Rocks. They are touring again this year, including a stop at Stage AE. OMD and Howard Jones open. OMD stands for Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark; the English duo are arguably best known for “If You Leave.” Howard Jones, also from England, pairs synthesizers with introspective lyrics, like on “What Is Love.” Doors open 6 p.m. 400 North Shore Dr., North Shore.

2) The Pens have won the Stanley Cup Championship so now it’s time for the Pirates to get on to the postseason track. They can start tonight with a win against the San Francisco Giants in the first game of a four-game home stand against them. 7:05 p.m.  PNC Park, 115 Federal St., North Shore.

3) It’s Global Mondays at Cappy’s Cafe in Shadyside with imported bottled beers for only $3. While there, team up an import with a bowl of their scrumptious chili. 5431 Walnut St.
