    Arkells covered "Poets" at their Kingston show back in April. Max is obviously a very different vocalist than Ed, but they did a really good job of it. I don't think the Hip's necessarily the easiest band to cover, but this song suited them perfectly. (Also, now that the Hip aren't touring, I've started seeing a lot of Arkells shows, which is a surprise, but there you have it! They rule.)
    They also covered music at work when my work had them for a private gig recently
  • Always had a crush on Emma lovewell and that grew even more today. Did her tragically hip afo ride. Bump

    I can fo sure hear Ed's voice lending itself to Bobcaygeon, and Wheat Kings in a slower acoustic set.  I also think it might go well with Scared, So Hard Done By, and Grace Too.  
    Maybe they could even just have a few members of the band Jam with them at the end of the show like they did with Donna Grantis the last time they were in Toronto.
    Is there any Hip songs that would work as an intro / outro to any Pearl Jam songs like they have done with other covers, or even some of their own songs that don't get much full play?

  • You know guys - if you wanna practice the hip song in Québec City just to make sure it works, I won't mind.

    since I'm no longer going to Ottawa, should I change it to "one of the canadian shows"?
    I think I'll move to Australia

    While I'm going to Ott, Ham and TO...I think a Hip tune in Ottawa makes most sense.  So, respectfully....no. :smile:

    Great idea.  Courage or wheat kings would be awesome.  

     
    I still remember this.  Awesome gesture from pearl jam.

    I'll sign this petition. It would be a wonderful way to close the circle on the band's obvious affinity and respect for Gord and the Hip. I like all of the suggestions so far but have to think Bobcaygeon would be the obvious choice for a host of reasons (emotional resonance, Ed's register, lots of space to jam).
