Listening to the xx’s Valentine’s show from Dallas last night replaying on SiriusXMU. Kick off vibey tunes for the Family Day long weekend.
It was 18 years ago that I first saw the Tragically Hip. It was at the Halifax Metro Centre on February 2, 1994. Since then, I have seen the Hip a dozen or so times. A framed Hip concert poster hangs in a place of honour in my home. I love this band.

It was used as front-cover of the band’s most successful album, London Calling (1979).
