Who says Canada doesn’t have rock stars?

I saw The Tragically Hip last night.  Every time I see this group live they get better and better…which is pretty incredible since they’ve been playing together for more than 20 years.  Theirs is a high energy show with great music, interesting and strangely random chatter, and the incomparable dancing maneuvers of Gord Downie.  Now, I’ll admit to a crush on Mr. Downie, so I’m more than a bit biased, but he has fantastic stage presence.  It really seems that he manages to make eye contact with members of the audience and relates on some sort of personal level.  He also seems to really enjoy what he’s doing up there.  I do hope their band rider includes lots of some sort of electrolyte beverage, I’ve never seen a man sweat so much!  Check out their channel on youtube…they are worth the google search!
