B.A. Johnston is a Canadian musical performer.
Johnston is known for his energetic live performances, where he frequently enters the audience, removes clothing, and gets progressively drunker over the course of his show. Johnston tours often and usually plays small dive bars in mid-size to large cities across Canada.
His music often builds on self-deprecating references to local Canadian life, such as his love for Hamilton, Ontario, his time spent living in Peterborough, Ontario where for a time he studied philosophy at Trent University and worked at the now defunct club The Trasheteria, various bars, shopping malls and fast food locations where he eats, and life as a poorly paid non-stop touring musician. . Additional favourite lyrical topics are his love for fried foods, touring in his Mom's Toyota Previa Minivan and living in her basement.
