That (First) Night in Toronto


  • The Luxury
  • Little Bones
  • Fiddler’s Green
  • Three Pistols
  • In a World Possessed By the Human Mind
  • Tired as Fuck
  • What Blue
  • Machine
  • My Music at Work (…which was the first Hip song I heard at the ACC; in fact, it was the first Hip song I heard live, period)
  • Lake Fever (…which I used to vehemently dislike; what ever was I thinking?)
  • Toronto #4 (…which I’d heard live once previously: at my very first Hip show!)
  • Puttin’ Down (…which was surprisingly tolerable last night)
  • Gift Shop
  • Springtime in Vienna
  • Flamenco
  • Ahead by a Century
  • Fully Completely
  • At the Hundredth Meridian
  • Wheat Kings
  • Fifty Mission Cap (Oddly, the 1951 Stanley Cup banner was missing from the rafters. On the other side of the arena the only player banner that was hanging yesterday was Bill Barilko’s, which MLSE restored to the rafters for the three Hip concerts. Presumably it’ll be given to his family after the shows are done.)

1st Encore:

  • Grace, Too (As Sam remarked, we got the full Gord for this one; this included a resurrection of the man vs. microphone stand battle whose outcome remains undecided.)
  • So Hard Done By (You know what they say: you wait 28 shows to hear a song once and one show to hear it again.)
  • Nautical Disaster (tour debut, surprisingly)

2nd Encore:

  • Bobcaygeon
  • Poets

That (second) night in Toronto is tomorrow!
