Remember that time The Tragically Hip played CBGB?

While The Tragically Hip band could attract tens of thousands to gigs in Canada by the early 90s, they were still a club act in most of the United States. This gig at CBGB in New York happened as the band was promoting Full Completely stateside. The date was January 14, 1993.

    I realise they were promoting Fully Completely, but why wouldn’t they sprinkle in some songs that made them popular in Canada? Seems a waste not play some of their Canadian hits while there. Seems self defeating.
