i'm not so much a hip fan these days, but i was for a long long time. for your first purchase, i'd say go for 'day for night' or 'fully completely'. you probably can't go wrong, though, all of their stuff is pretty good.

not DFN. you need to hear Fully Completely first before you get into Day For Night.

my suggestion is either Road Apples or Fully Completely for your first purchase.

anyways, this concert was fucking brilliant! i didn't even think i was going to be able to go until by random happenstance, i got my paycheck yesterday at about 1:30, a week early. so i drove 140 into the metro centre box office and bought a ticket. my seat was in the lower bowl, section 11, 5th row up. it's about where the horseshoe starts to curve, so i was close enough to see but far enough away that i was able to see the whole stage.

so i met up with Basia and Jill, 2 friends of mine who had seats directly opposite from me. we walked down to the metro center an hour before the concert and it was already jammed. we wandered for about an hour and Joel Plaskett came on and played a damn brilliant set. he won over a LOT of fans last night, they even gave him a standing ovation once the set was done! he's a local boy from halifax, and tonight was the last show of the tour.

then after a wait of about 45 minutes, the Hip come on to a packed house of about 9,000. they played an amazing first set. some of the songs last night were the best live versions that i can remember ever hearing. "Locked In The Trunk Of A Car" stands out in particular. it was a set of old classics mixed in with the best of the new album.

the set ended and the Hip went off. they came back on to an encore of three songs, left again, came back for a second encore (in which they played Blow at High Dough) before saying good night for the evening.

but the crowd wouldn't let them go, so after they had a smoke back stage they came back on for a third encore including "Grace, Too" and "You're Everywhere", my favorite song from the new album.

it was a damn motherfucking ass-brilliant show. even better than the time i saw them on citadel hill with 40,000 other people. the new material works so well live. i'll post the setlist once it goes up on the website.

I saw them on their Music @ Work tour and they were decent. The Hip are more suited for clubs though, in my opinion. More ideal would be a reduced setlist. At times the live songs become a bit listless, and even though they intend to project passion... it just comes off as another day at the office.

Maybe I'm totally off base, but relative to a great deal of the live acts I've seen... mediocre comes to mind.

Fully Completely is a good record.

Indeed. I think that was the problem.

Saw them at the Saddledome... it wasn't in the round though, so I'd guess around 15000. That's why I feel smaller venues would be more conducive to their sound.

"this is called at the hundredth meridian
where the real humour begins
where the real funny stuff
get set y'all!
isn't that right?

look out paul!
got some trouble drivin' with the left hand
got the right hand, can't use the shotgun
gotta use a revolver and i shoot over passengers
paul sits in the back seat now
there's no point in duckin' to get out of the way no how"

me debunk a freudian myth
take my life in my hands
where the great plains begin
at the hundredth meridian
at the hundredth meridian
where the great plains begin

drivin' down a corduroy road
weeds standin' shoulder high
ferris wheel is rusting
off in the distance

at the hundredth meridian
at the hundredth meridian
at the hundredth meridian
where the great plains begin

left alone to get gigantic
hard huge and haunted
a generation so much dumber than its parents
came crashing through the window
a raven strains along the line of a road
carryin' a muddy old skull
the wires sizzled their approval
off in the distance

at the hundredth meridian
at the hundredth meridian
at the hundredth meridian
where the great plains begin

at the hundredth meridian
at the hundredth meridian
at the hundredth meridian
where the great plains begin

i remember
i remember buffalo
i remember hengelo
it would seem to me
i remember every single fuckin' thing i know

"had a score to settle
had a score to settle when i was in town
i had to take somebody down
it's a business thing
you wouldn't understand
it was a business thing
i had to take him out!
in the footings
where they sunk the causeway
in the wet cement
you'll find my undoing
you'll find my death sentence
i thought i planned it real good
i planned it out in advance
if they wanna catch me
they'll have to walk a mile in my pants
at the moment, i don't think anyone's kind enough to do that
it was a perfect plan
until i told all of you
now you understand
if you do, don't say anything at all!

okay
alright

it's too hot to sleep
let's gather round the fan
we can't do nothin' 'bout the heat
let's just do what we can
and everything'll be just fine
just dream of the lofty pines

well i dreamed of the lofty pines
at least what i thought they were
and now i'm in the forest and it's night time
they're swaying so cool and so sure
sure
sure has never been so wrong
sure
sure is the title of this perfect song.

i gave the editor my pitch
a series on our cultural wealth
it's called 'the error of catalogues and lists'
or you can call it 'why we fight ourselves'
if only we had nothing to say
if only we'd done nothin' that day

steve yzerman said that...

now comes the spectacular part
just then a pack of matches fell
what do you think it said on the back?
they're from the lofty pines motel
see, all the while, our dreams were our own
all the while i thought that meant all alone

we can't do nothin' bout the heat
she said in her manhattan french
she said i was born for the heat

too warm and intense
and everything will be just fine
just dream of the lofty pines

i've taken up way too much of your time
with thoughts of the lofty pines
but that's my new alias
i'm gonna take up a new name, tonight
lofty
paging mr. lofty pines
that makes you all friends of mine."

if i die of vanity
promise me promise me
if they bury me someplace i don't wanna be
you'll dig me up and transport me
unceremoniously away from
the swollen city breeze
garbage-bag trees
the whispers of disease
and the acts of enormity
and lower me slowly, sadly and properly
get ry cooder to sing my eulogy

at the hundredth meridian
at the hundredth meridian
at the hundredth meridian
where the great plains begin

at the hundredth meridian
at the hundredth meridian
at the hundredth meridian
where the great plains begin

everything in the ""s was all improvised.

gord downie is a fucking genius.

A friend of mine saw them last Wednesday and had drinks with the band (minus Gord) afterwards in Montreal.
