Arrogant Worms in Mission on March 14

The Arrogant Worms bring their unique brand of Canadian musical comedy to Mission’s Clarke Theatre on March 14.

The Arrogant Worms bring their unique brand of Canadian musical comedy to Mission’s Clarke Theatre on March 14.

They are celebrating their 20th anniversary this year with the release of Hindsight 20/20, a greatest hits album that features hits like Canada is Really Big, Celine Dion and a new dance remix of the classic The Last Saskatchewan Pirate.

Sensing a desperate public need for musical comedy, The Arrogant Worms formed in Kingston, Ont. in 1991. Mike McCormick, Chris Patterson and Trevor Strong have since released 13 albums.

Each consists mostly of independent tracks paying homage, always humourously, to different genres and topics.Rock, folk, ballads, country, Celtic folk and children’s music have all come under the Worm’s satirical guns. When not spoofing a particular music style, the trio’s material pokes fun at various aspects of daily life in Canada with songs like Me Like Hockey, We are the Beaver, I Am Not American and Proud to Be Canadian.

The shows are billed as “fast, furious and family friendly.”

In recent years, The Arrogant Worms have donated their time to the cause of literacy in Canada through Frontier College and were awarded the Peter Gzowski Award for their efforts.

The Clarke Theatre (604-820-3961) is located at 33700 Prentis Ave. in Mission. Advance tickets are on sale for $22.50 (plus facility fees and service charges) at all Ticketmaster locations or $25 at the door. The show starts at 7:30 p.m., with doors opening at 7 p.m.
