Asked a 1987 bartender to lower the volume on 'that band'...

On a weekday evening at Roosters Pub at Carleton University, sometime in 1987 or 1988, a group of us were playing Eucre over a few pints. Only a handful of other tables were filled. When this new band from Kingston came on, at first we were a little mad that we couldn't hear each other anymore... we soon realized that there was something about this band that we'd remember. I've since seen The Hip live close to 10 times, even in my new city of San Diego at the Belly Up. Great to be back in bars with you - only now when I see you I'm with a thousand screamingly proud Canadian ex-pats.
