UPDATE: Because Spinner is RIP, Sarah’s full interview with The Hip can be found here.
To celebrate the release of The Tragically Hip‘s newest album Now For Plan A the band recently took over Toronto’s boho Kensington Market neighbourhood for multiple days worth of free mini concerts, interviews and autograph sessions.
Sarah went down to experience the unique event and also interview the band. The resulting interview was, well, “weird,” devolving into a lengthy discussion on how the mess on old Russian hockey nets makes for more exciting goal scoring than with the antiseptic nets used these days. Yeah. Blame Gord Downie.

Also, for added Hip-ness, I did a dangle piece for Gord Downie‘s appearance on George Stroumboulopoulos Tonight over at Huffington Post Music Canada. That’s worth tracking down too because Gord says some heavy stuff.
