i have to agree completely. i like the hip and i'm not ashamed to admit 
it. it takes a lot to bring some of these bands on the road with them, 
because a lot of the people that go are there to see the hip, or someone 
like, in this case, matthew sweet, or whoever. i heard a lot of people 
complain about change of heart at the hip show in halifax, and the only 
thing i'll agree about was the fact that they're not an arena band...and 
they know it too. i saw them at birdland in april and it was easily the 
best show i've seen this year! however, as it stands, eric's trip are 
probably going to get a lot of shit from those beer drinkin preppy "mommy 
paid for my university" assholes who make the show less enjoyable anyway. 
so i commend the hip on trying to open the minds of these people. i just 
wish it was coming this far east. oh well, at least trip are playing here 
this weekend:)
