Tragically Hip Day

  • August 20, 2016
    12:00 pm - 11:00 pm

I’ve known The Tragically Hip since 1986 when they independently released the Last American Exit EP. This tour is the first one they’ve done I haven’t been able to see – for a variety of reasons – but The Carleton will embrace Halifax’s Tragically Hip Day celebrations on Saturday, August 20th with all Hip, all day, and we encourage you to drop in for some food and drinks downtown and to share your Hip memories with us. It will be a day and night like no other in Canadian music history. Be part of it.


And after the Grand Parade showing of the band’s final show, continue your night with some great local live music as The Valiants rip it up on our stage after 10 PM. It’s only $5 at the door and worth twice as much.
