    Happy Tragically Hip Day!

    It was back in old seventy two, the last time I remember, a televised event that unites the country in the way, this will tonite.

    Think of it as a celebration of life and stifle any tears.
    He is still alive and doin what he loves, for the whole nation to witness.

    They are OUR lil Canadian secret and personify 'the land of the beaver' Rock N Roll.
    Long Live The Hip!

    Twist My Arm in a Gift Shop in Bobcaygeon, while we Blow at High Dough.

    And I will have Courage, and Grace Too, Locked in a Trunk of a Car with Poets, At the Hundrenth Meridian.

    If you see the 38 years Old, Highway Girl with The Fifty Mission Cap, tell her New Orleans is Sinking, but the Wheat Kings, with Little Bones and Three Pistols, have Boots OR Hearts for her.

    If you are at the Sexy Pool today, tell Charlie to play some Hip in honor of National Hip Day

    And chuckle over the fact that, our American pals have no idea what this thread is about

    Tragically Hip was the first and only concert that I slept outside the night before tickets went on sale.....now I will add this was before smart phones and the Internet was not freely available

    It was a great night camping in the city with friends and a fantastic concert!

    We're going to a barn party near Belleville, Ontario that will air the concert.

    Show will be great, weather sizzling, and the beers flowing !

    Enjoy y'all :)

    Canada is officially closed for the next 2 hrs or so in tribute to Gord Downie and the rest of the Hip . Enjoy the show wherever you watch it .
    This will probably be one of the most watched shows ever in Canadian TV history .

    That was Fuckin Amazing!
    Iconic, Historical and Glorious.

    We have seen well over 300 concerts and we both agree that was one of the best performances we have ever witnessed.
    So many highlights and almost all of their best songs.
    For 3 hours, we were one nation, weaved together under Gord

    I got to get me a '2 Sock scarf' to keep my voice warm!(lol)

    This is not a dress rehearsal, this is our lives

    Very very sorry to learn of his passing this morning.
    If I were Justin, I would declare a National Day of mourning.
    RIP Gordie!
    I know you gotta go
    But thanks...for everything.
    You were one of a kind!

    you were 'ahead by a century'

    That is a fantastic, and yet so very tough to watch, interview with 2 icons of the fabric of Canada

    Very sad. I ways fortunate enough to be able to attend one of his last concerts. Very emotional. RIP Gord. There is a hole in Canada’s heart today.
