Concert: BA Johnston (Firehall Brewery)

June 15, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm


B.A. Johnston, is a Canadian comedic musician and performance artist based in Hamilton, Ontario. He began touring around Canada in 2002, performing songs that are often comedic in nature and include pop cultural references to sports teams, junk food, and video games. Accompanying himself on guitar and keyboard, he performed as the character B.A. (Bored Again) Johnston who lives at home with his mother. Johnston’s 2010 album “Thank You for Being a Friend” appeared on the !Earshot National Top 50 Chart. Exclaim! magazine described it as “simplistic synth-pop and aggressive acoustic folk.” A feature article about Johnston in the Globe And Mail acknowledged his polarizing status in the Canadian music scene, noting that for some he is a “modern-age Stompin’ Tom Connors.” However, unlike Connors, Johnston’s references to life in modern-day Canada are exaggeratedly irreverent and unromanticized, featuring ironic swipes at large Canadian institutions like Foodland, No Frills, and Tim Hortons. As of 2022, Johnston continues to tour across Canada, performing his energetic and humorous show.

Cover charge of $15. Advance tickets available online on Firehall’s website. This event is “rain or shine,” though extreme weather will trigger a cancellation. Event cancellation due to extreme weather will be notified by email and on the Facebook event page, with refunds to follow.
