Last night in Toronto was 15th annual Andy Kim Christmas Show, which featured appearances from Ron Sexsmith, Sloan, Bif Naked, Men Without Hats, Crash Test Dummies, Jane Siberry, and more. As part of their set Sloan brought out surprise guest Kevin Drew of Broken Social Scene and the great Tracey Ullman to pay tribute to Pete Shelley (who died almost exactly a year ago) and cover Buzzcocks’ classic “Why Can’t I Touch It?” Sloan joked on Instagram, “We were starting to think this was never gonna get crossed off our very extensive and specific bucket list: ‘sing a Buzzcocks song onstage with Kevin Drew and Tracey Ullman.’” If you’re wondering, Tracey Ullman did her hit cover of Kirsty MacColl’s “They Don’t Know” elsewhere in the evening. Watch video of both, below.

Sloan are in the midst of their Navy Blues tour where they’re performing that 1998 album in full. East Coast dates start in February and includes a NYC stop at Bowery Ballroom on February 20 (tickets).
