Ya, it's a welcome change from the stereotypical Blow, or Little Bones.

I like how they've been changing up the setlists lately. Hopefully, they bring that with them on their summer swing through Canada.

It seems I see some of the best Hip performances in Cleveland. This show was no exception. The sold out HOB was packed with a large contingent of Buffalo Hip fans. This was a high energy crowd feeding of the Hip's excellent sound. At one point during the show Gord stated, "I am the god of electricity and these are my minions", pointing to all of us. Gord and the band led us on a wonderful musical journey. I thought it was one of the best set lists of the World Container tour with an excellent mix of old and new songs.

One surprise was a new lead in to Daredevil. Instead of Hiccups, "Burn on Big River" by Randy Nueman was played. Burn on Big River and Chagrin Falls were excellent and both were very appropriate with all of the Ohio references. During the 100th Meridian jam, Gord unplugged his mike from the cord and threw the mike into the crowd. A woman in the front row made a nice one handed grab and caught it. She held it in her fist and pumped it in the air. She eventually gave it back. This was followed by Last of the Unplucked Gems. A nice choice to pull out of the large music catalogue that The Hip posses.

I hated to see the evening end because I had so much fun at the show, but the encore set was fantastic. Can I say Emperor F**king Penguin! Hello?! Then that great song was followed by the band's cover of Gordon Lightfoot's Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald. I love that song and The Hip played it with great energy and bravado. The show ended with Fully, Completely. Before Gord left the stage, he ended the show as he did the other nights. He knelt down and ground the mike into the stage floor. He was snuffing the mike out like a smoker who was extinguishing his finished cigarette.

I had the best time these last 3 days going to 3 show in a row. I must say I'm exhausted, worn out and very happy. The Hip entertained me with great songs and very few repeats in each set list. I enjoyed seeing my Hip Head friends who went to the shows with me. Being with others who enjoy the music as much as I do just makes things more fun. Carolyn and I want to give a special thank you to The Hip and their crew for letting us hang out with them. We really appreciate it.

Guess Sundays are high traffic days and slowing down my end, although I usually send you stuff overnight so we don't notice how long it takes, you've just been watching this one since 7:30am when I got home from Cleveland :lol:

I'm sad about missing Detroit 1st night but the 2nd night and Cleveland were both great shows to have seen

Just back to Oakville now. Great show. I still can't believe they played Emperor Penguin and Edmond Fitzgerald. Great to see Hugh, Carolyn and the drunk guys that I see everywhere.

We almost ran out of gas driving to the show but we just made it to the hotel. It was great to see a Penguins victory tonight followed by a penguin song being played.

My ears are still ringing.
