The Tragically Hip - Atlanta - March 13th, 2007
Tonight Jody and I went out for a very rare and hard to come by date night. The occasion you may ask was to see The Tragically Hip concert at the Roxy theatre. We are both HUGE Hip fans and go see them each and every time they come to Atlanta, which is pretty much every other year or so. The best part about the shows in Atlanta are the venues. For those who don't know, the Roxy is not very big, I'm guessing that there were less than 1000 people there, plus half of the Atlanta Thrashers hockey team (I wonder why that is). We got there just in time to completely miss the opening act, since we weren't interested, plus Lily (our daughter) was being stubborn with respect to going to bed tonight. We were paying for our beer at the bar as the concert started. It wasn't very long, lasting only about 2 hours.
It really is neat seeing so many Canadians all in one place. Flags were waving and it was quite a sight, since to me, this band really reminds me of my roots. I of course made the traditional phone calls to many people while I was there, holding up the phone and letting people listen.
On our way out, we walked by the sound guy and my eye caught his set list and I pointed it out to Jody. She asked me if I wanted it and I said sure, so she went and asked him for it with a big smile on her face, and of course, since no one can really say no to her smile, she got it.
Here it is if anyone is interested!
Now off to bed to try and get some sleep! I still have to work in the morning.
