The result was a wide-ranging interview for Huffington Post Music Canada where band leader Carl Newman told her about how psyched he was about the band’s new songs.

Tragically Hip On Canada Day: Gord Downie’s The Nation’s Weird Uncle

Tragically Hip’s Gord Downie

UPDATE: Because Spinner is RIP we’ve unearthed this story at this link.

The Tragically Hip‘s big Canada Day show this year took place at Burl’s Creek in Oro, Ontario.

The giant campsite played host to the Hip, Death Cab For Cutie, The New Pornographers and the Rural Alberta Advantage.

What he represents is a gateway drug pusher for Canadian art, like that uncle who gives you a joint for graduating high school.

As such, Sarah wrote about it, and I took pictures of it, for Spinner.
