Four mainstream alt rock bands hit town as part of this tour as headlined by The Barenaked Ladies. The Canadian biggies have churned out their fair share of pop-catchy hit singles over a more than two-decade career ("One Week," "Pinch Me," "Brian Wilson," "If I Had $1,000,000") and last year, dropped All In Good Time, their 11th studio album and first as a four-piece (Ed Robertson assumed all vocal duties after Steven Page left the band in 2009 to explore his solo options. On an interesting side note, BNL is currently working on an original score for Animal House: The Musical, that's based on the popular 1978 John Landis comedy. Harp-slinging brassy-singing John Popper leads Blues Traveler, a New Jersey quintet that earned a Grammy for their 1994 breakthrough hit, "Run-Around," and currently backs their 10th full-length, 2012's Suzie Cracks the Whip. Also on the Earth Tour: Colorado's twangy bluesy Big Head Todd & The Monsters, their own latest release, Big Head Blues Club - 100 Years of Robert Johnson, a stirring tribute of classic Johnson tunes as re-imagined by the band and a guest list of blues luminaries like B.B. King and the late Hubert Sumlin; and alt country vets Cracker, founded in 1991 by Camper Van Beethoven's singer-songwriter David Lowery and guitarist Johnny Hickman.
