Well, I bumped into this recording on SoundCloud while I was messing about. I listened to it and now I'm sharing it with all of you. It's from the Sasquatch Music Festival back in 2006 and The Hip played on the Saturday about mid-way on the bill. Ben Harper headlined that night and The Flaming Lips (awesome live act) were on right before Ben. Anyway, right before The Hip came on stage a huge hail storm blew through and it actually forced Neko Case off the stage. It was up-in-the-air whether or not the show would continue. I did and what we have is this nice, crisp recording of The Hip's set...

Setlist: Grace Too*, The Lonely End Of The Rink, Nautical Disaster, The Drop-Off, Courage, Fly, Fully Completely, Poets

* lists 'As Makeshift As We Are' as the opening track. This is incorrect.

This show was at the beginning of what I think was a fairly prolific period of live shows for The Hip. Setlist diversity during the summer of 2006 and into the fall was up there with the best it's ever been...
