The Tragically Hip

Just bought tickets to see/hear Canadian band The Tragically Hip in April at what seems to be a very cool club, The Chameleon Club, in nearby Lancaster, Pennsylvania.

I've heard a lot of good reports about The Hip, as they are affectionately known by their fans, and decided it is time to check them out for myself.
Also, thinking of making a weekend of it and doing a little reconnaissance work around the greater Lancaster City area... maybe, there are jobs and affordable housing available.
Lancaster is a large enough city to have an active nightclub scene, yet still small enough to feel 'country-fied'. and, the location is closer to Philadelphia and Washington, D.C. giving me better opportunity to more easily enjoy live music... since, anymore, music is one of the few things in life that i still believe in and gives me pleasure... so, why not go for it!?


  1. allright.. another trip coming up. and thinking of moving?.. looking forward to reading on the follow up

  2. I must have five or six Hip CDs. You won't be disappointed. I was a big fan in the 90s.

    Most Americans don't know who they are. You have Canadian friends...

  3. hi Dan,
    yup got a couple Canadian friends who share love for music, but oddly enough, i found out about The Hip from participating on various non-Canadian Indie music fansite forums. looking forward to discovering The Hip for myself!

    oh! been listening to your podcast, 'The Bitterest Pill', for a couple of years (or maybe longer... time flies by so quickly). You really make me laugh with your wonderfully crazy stories.
    just noticed that i didn't have you list on here along with other fav podcasts. my bad,,, but i fixed that and posted a link to your website :)

  4. Shout out ;) just a try to see if i can get you back to blogging :)
