Moe Berg will also be touring this year as a member of the TransCanada Highwaymen, along with former Barenaked Ladies vocalist Steven Page, Odds’ Craig Northey, and Sloan member Chris Murphy.

Exploding onto the Canadian rock scene with “I’m An Adult Now,” The Pursuit of Happiness went on to sell over 100,000 copies of their debut album Love Junk and continued to have hits in the early 90s such as “Two Girls in One,” and “Cigarette Dangles.” Both hit songs “I’m An Adult Now” and “Two Girls in One” are on the, never before released, Brave New Waves session.
