We were on the same bill as The Tragically Hip when they headlined Virgin Fest Calgary in 2008...we played an afternoon set on the small stage, far away from the headliners, with no green room, barely any access, our first festival gig actually! Later that night we were lucky enough to watch The Hip from sidestage...at the end of their set, Gord thanked EVERY band on the bill. When he belted out "SAID THE WHALE", Ben and I looked at each other with wide eyes. "Did he just...?? Was that real??!" We learned a lesson in inclusiveness that night, a lesson in humility, and a lesson in Canadianness. We'll never forget it.
And we should all kiss each other on the lips more often. ❤️????????❤️
