Getting ready for the Hip on Saturday?
The waterfront plays host to a live broadcast of the Hip's Man Machine Poem tour
As we count the days until the Tragically Hip concert will be broadcast live at Thunder Bay's waterfront, have a look at a couple of items we've pulled in from the archives.
We found an interview from 1999, when CBC reporter Laurie Brown sat down with hip frontman Gord Downie. Seventeen years have passed, and Gord still has that youthful glint in his eye. Try not to get nostalgic while watching it.
We've also got an interesting — meaning great and obscure — compilation of Hip covers that CBC Radio 2 reporter Holly Gordon put together. Scroll through and listen.
Lastly, if you haven't already, click on the poll and tell us which Hip song best describes Thunder Bay. Looking for a Place to Happen is currently in the lead.
