Another "Another Roadside Attraction" is my guess.

with Phish' date=' DMB, and The Hold Steady?

and nitwits throwing full water bottles at bands that aren't The Hip?

Lanois'd.

That was one of the most embarrassing concert moments I have ever witnessed. Second only to Coventry....

Daniel Lanois performed prior to the Hips set at Molson Park in Barrie.

I'm not positive but I think it was in July of 95- at the second go round of Another Roadside Attraction.

While its pretty obvious that putting Lanois on before the Hip was a mis match- the suburnt and drunk crowd let Dan have it. "Hip, Hip, Hip" chants throughout his first few songs and when he didn't vacate the stage the bottles started to fly. Hundreds of them hit the stage and Lanois eventually had to leave before really finishing.

I forget exactly what Gord said when he took the stage but he didn't pull any punches letting the rowdy crowd that their behaviour was embarrassing and inexcuseable. I'm pretty sure they then opened with 'Thugs'.

actually, it was at markham fairgrounds.

i totally missed that. I think i was wandering around, for some inexplicable reason, during Lanois' set.

97 was at molson park. with los lobos (i patched into the board for a recording), sheryl crowe, and ??

asshole security wouldn't let us take in our thermarests and chair conversion kits.

That's a doozy of a lineup!

I can't believe that happened to Lanois. Brutal.

I was at that Roadside '97.

BWM - do you still have that recording????

I have it somewhere. still on the master cassette. I need to make a digital copy. Is there a relatively easy way of hooking up my computer to my stereo and doing that? alternatively I've been meaning to borrow a standalone CD player/burner for that purpose.

The event I am speaking of definitely took place at Molson Park in Barrie, but according to this listing it was not a ARA but rather a Canada Day show:

Treble Charger, The Mahones, Eric's Trip, Change of Heart, The Rheostatics, Jane Siberry, The Odds, Spirit of the West, Daniel Lanois, The Tragically Hip - Fri July 1, 1994, Molson Park, Barrie, Ont.
