@ = Acoustic

Notes: This was a festival gig and therefore not 2 sets as the "Evening with..." shows are. It's kind of surprising they still flipped over to acoustic mode with no intermission and it being a big outdoor gig. The acoustic portion works really well in the smaller 2500-4000 person venues The Hip have been playing. I'm not sure how it would have came off here. Time will tell.

This would have been a hometown show for me back in the day being from Owen Sound. Many, many field parties I attended in the Grey-Bruce area had The Hip blaring in the background as the young locals with nothing better to do got soused week after week. I expect crowd reports to indicate nothing much has changed with the locals :)
