Getting Hip to
If you've ever wondered what it would be like to hear the Tragically Hip's music as if for the first time again, here's your chance to do it Join music fans Pete and Tim, who have never heard the band before, on a journey through The Hip’s discography, accompanied by their guide jD. "Getting Hip to the Hip" is a thought experiment and a way for curious
fans to dip their toes in the Hip's oeuvre.
Each week the trio will visit or in jDs case revisit a selection from the Hip's discography to describe what the kind of experience the music provided to them. There is also a bonus feed with extra content for those that want to do the total dive into the material.
The first episode is Friday,May 19th, just in time for the Victoria Day Long Weekend. New episodes will be released weekly on Mondays after the premier. Find out if our protagonists Pete and Tim become fans of the band, are able to feel their cultural significance, or even like the music at all. I’m really excited about this new podcast, and I think you will too.
In fact. I’m so convinced of it I’ve already begun planning a live event to wrap up the podcast, On Friday, September 1st in the heart of downtown Toronto at the Rec Room. In honour of The Hip’s late frontman, Gord Downie, all proceeds from our live event will go to the Downie Wenjack Fund.
