It’s Well Worth the Wait

Disgracefully, I haven’t seen the Tragically Hip in concert in over a year-and-a-half; the last time I saw them was the day before mine and Bri’s first date, so to borrow a pearl of wisdom from Mr. Downie, “It’s been a long time coming, it’s been a long time running.” Long time, indeed. Happily, the waiting ends this weekend with the band’s two-night stand at Fort York, as improbable a venue in which to see Canada’s favourite sons as I can think of. Talia tried making me feel guilty for seeing the band without her–we’ve seen the Hip together seven times, including four times in 2004 alone–but failed; she’s the one who moved to Australia, after all. So instead, I’ll offer up the following photo…

…and a hearty “Eeeeeeeeeeeyeeeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhh,” and hope that makes her feel better. In the meantime, I’ve got two really killer shows to attend! Reviews, etc, to follow.
