This concert sticks in my memory more than all the other times I saw The Hip. I think it was the second Canada Day Edge Fest I saw them at but it was probably my fifth time seeing them altogether. It was different. Gord\'s hair was short for one thing. His enthusiasm was still there though. He struggled with many things that night but mostly his mic. It kept tipping over and he eventually asked the band for a dime to tighten the connection. There were coins flying at him from every direction for the rest of the show. I saw all of this up close and personal. My friend\'s and I had rushed for spots at the stage early. As the crowd pushed closer with each song, I got swished just a bit harder against the chain link. I left that show with a perfect indent of the fence across my face. Awesome!!!
