The Tragically Hip on Canada Day!

Jason and I got Media Passes to go and see The Tragically Hip on Canada Day in Barrie.  We didn’t have anything special planned and we were excited to go and do one of the most Canadian things you can do on Canada Day 🙂  Luckily babes Casie & Brock were on their way up as well so we all got to hang.


First we drove up to a Casie’s friend Sean’s cottage in Gravenhurst and it was a beautiful drive.  It was on Morrison Lake and was so peaceful and warm.  We went in the water and for a ride on a boat while Sean wakeboarded.



Then we went over to another cottage to pick up some friends and headed to Burl’s Creek Family Trailer Park for the show.  We couldn’t get in the event quickly enough to see Death Cab for Cutie’s set but we heard it from outside and they were pretty great 🙂

The Hip came on just after 9pm and were awesome as usual.  The last time I saw them was about 6 years ago at the ACC so it was really cool to see them at an outdoor venue.  The special guest was the lovely Sarah Harmer – who dueted on a couple of songs including my FAVOURITE Hip song “Wheat Kings”.



For the rest of the photos you can check out my album here and I’ve got some videos to post as well, but of course they take forever to upload to YouTube.

Thank you so much to my wonderful friends at Matchstick for giving myself and my American man the most Canadian Canada Day we could have had.  It was a blast and we can’t wait for next year!

I’ve got a super cool opportunity for emerging bands/artist that I’m going to post tomorrow AM in partnership with Canadian Club so make sure you stay tuned.
