About the Event

Firehall Brewery is proud to present... BA Johnston!

Who should we believe: Wikipedia, or the man himself? 

Let's see what Wikipedia has to say... "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 unromanticised, 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."

But you know the internet these days... so we went straight to the source. Here is BA Johnston's autobiographical take on his professional music career: "B.A. Johnston has been playing "music" throughout Canada since the dawn of time. He is best known for being the human inspiration for The Littlest Hobo and once ate three Baconators on a bet. He can be found at some crappy bar near you playing for a nominal cover charge, which people pay even though 'they only want to come in and have some wings.' "

You can decide for yourself on June 15th, for a nominal cover charge of $15 (that you should probably pay online in advance). If there's one thing you should not let your social media feed distract you from, it's getting your tickets here!

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.


Seating will be limited and first-come-first-serve, so expect to dance!

No alcohol from outside the premises is permitted. Door security will check bags for alcohol, and alcohol consumption is not permitted outside the concert area (ex: parking lot, alleyway, etc). 

Tickets are non-refundable (except in the rare event of concert cancellation).

WE ARE STOKED! See ya there!
