Just wondering what the American perception of the Tragically Hip is. They're probably the single most popular band in Canada and I get the impression that most Americans either haven't heard of them or don't know what all the fuss is about. I'm excited because I just got front row center tickets to their concert here in Calgary in September (seen them three times, never been that close before). While they can normally sell out a 16000 seat stadium in a matter of hours here, they are playing smaller venues this time. The auditorium they are playing here seats 2700.
