When I first watched the video for The Tragically Hip's "In View", I was taken aback by a snippet of a song that interrupts "In View" at about the 32 second mark. We're bouncing around to "In View" when suddenly Gord is looking solemnly into the mirror as about 15

Fellow Hip fans should be aware that tomorrow night's Hockey Night In Canada telecast will open with The Tragically Hip's "Lonely End Of The Rink". "Lonely End Of The Rink" is a new song from the upcoming World Container disc that I first heard at Fort York on June 24th.
"In View", the latest single from The Tragically Hip from their upcoming release World Container, has been available for a month now. I've heard it dozens of times and I've had discussions about it with other Hip fans. We've reached a consensus. It's good! It's damn catchy and bounces around
This morning, at 10am sharp, tickets went on sale for a series of club shows featuring The Tragically Hip. The shows are at The Phoenix, my old stomping grounds. As a Hip club member, I was given the head's up but things don't always unravel according to plan. I simply
I saw the Stereophonics at Edgefest back in 2003 when we were supposedly saying goodbye to Molson Park. In that entry I noted that The Stereophonics used to be called Tragic Love Company, partly because of their fondness for our very own Tragically Hip, one of their favourite bands. The

I stumbled upon this news article about the launch of a new radio station on the Cayman Islands. Cayrock 96.5 FM began broadcasting yesterday but what gets me is the list of bands they're promising to play. Here's a direct quote. Cayrock promises old classics to the most popular
A couple of days removed from heaven at Fort York, it's time for a little perspective. Up To Here was, without a doubt, The Tragically Hip's breakout in this country. It got plenty of airplay, sold plenty of copies (1,250,000 at last count) and blew me away. Along
Having now seen The Tragically Hip live nine times, I can vouch for their consistency. They're nine for nine in terms of putting on an energetic, fulfilling, quality rock show. Because they never have an off day, ranking the nine shows relies on other factors, mainly ambience, venue, playlist and
Fort York, located just North of the Gardiner Expressway between Bathurst and Strachan, is probably our most famous fort. I remember first learning about Fort York in primary school during lessons about The War of 1812. Those damn Yankees overran the place during The Battle of York in 1813 but
Even before I saw "Saint Ralph" I was hunting for an MP3 of Gord Downie's cover of Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah". Last month I linked to a site that was sharing several covers of this Cohen classic. I left a comment on that site telling everyone about my search for Downie's

Saint Ralph: 8 out of 10. Last night, I finally watched "Saint Ralph". I first wrote about this movie last August when I learned The Tragically Hip's Gord Downie recorded a cover of Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah" for the movie. Jeff Buckley's cover of Cohen's "Hallelujah" is one of my ten
That's how PBS is billing "That Night In Toronto", airing Friday night at midnight. "That Night in Toronto", of course, was captured live at the November 2004 Air Canada Centre concert in Toronto by filmmakes Pierre and Francois Lamoureux, and I was there. It was a great show and if
