    Day 10: Brandon Concert Review

    Keystone Arena, Brandon, MB
    Tuesday, November 28, 2000

    Deep in the bowels of the Keystone Centre after a superb display of musical talent and physical wizardry from Gord (Merlin) Downie himself. From the opening licks of Poets, to the final note of Little Bones, the Tragically Hip warmed up the frigid Brandon crowd with expertise unlikely to ever be matched in a live setting. The afternoon started with a lackadaisical, laid-back mood. A good thing, too. You could tell they were saving up their energy for the big show.

    Some classics materialized in the setlist tonight, including Looking for a Place to Happen, and Blow at High Dough. The Brandon crowd braved wind-swept prairie highways and ice-cold temperatures to see five Kingston fellows do their thing, and guaranteed, no one left disappointed. Smiles were everywhere, on stage and in the crowd. Without knowing a thing about them, you could just watch these five on stage, and realize that they've been friends forever. This makes their music special in ways that most other bands can't match.

    With many more shows to come, the US fans, and fans in eastern Canada are in for the time of their lives. Kate Fenner and Chris Brown have added palpable electricity to the band, and they can't be missed. Hello to our friends on the Henhouse mailing list, and a massive thanks to Mr. Ross Walton, our gracious host for the day, and to our family, for enjoying this experience with us.

    Help: After the show at Enmax Centre in Lethbridge on November 25th a Jerry Jones electric sitar went missing. If you know where it is or think you may have seen it anywhere [still at the Enmax, houses, shops, Ebay] please let The Hip know via email - tth@thehip.com. No questions asked if returned. Reward. Sitar description - red, six string + 16-string harp, pebbled rough surface, oval shaped body and the pick guards are clear and elevated off the body. The black carrying case has silver latches and is too big for the sitar.

    Winning Entry

    Thanks for putting together this great contest!

    I'm a huge Hip fan, and I live in Winnipeg, MB. I'll be attending both the Saskatoon and Brandon shows on the upcoming tour, and I would like to be your videographer for the Brandon show.

    My parents, brother and I have loved the Hip for many years. This will be my brother's first Canadian Hip show (he's 15), and I would love for him to meet the band, and see them up close in concert.

    On the technical side, I love video cameras, and aspire to become involved in that field of work.

    This would be a great experience for those, and many other, reasons. I am also very net-savvy. My Hip fan website is linked from thehip.com, and I've written many show reviews. I would be able to be in Brandon at any time on the 28th.

    Please consider me for this tour stop, and thanks again for a great contest, and your time.
