Fuck it I’m buying Blue Rodeo tickets for the whole team and we’re gonna go salute some Canadiana icons.
I was raised in Alberta, but every chance there was we snuck off to BC for the weekend. On those 4 hour drives my parents would blast an assortment of Blue Rodeo, The Band, and Jon Prine (among others). Now whenever I need to clear my head and feel grounded I throw on my earphones and listen to one of those bands. It refreshes me completely.
CBC radio is airing a Blue Rodeo concert on their ‘Canada Live’ program tonight. It’s making my night. Blue Rodeo is one of the bands I was raised on. I have literally loved them since I was too young to talk properly like a real human. I used to make my parents play their Five Days in July album over and over. I called them ‘Boo Ro.’
This dude fuckin gets it too
Blue Rodeo is my quick pass to childhood road trips.
Seriously, their sound makes me instantly calm.

Blue Rodeo - “Hasn’t Hit Me Yet”
One of my favorite songs to play during the winter months. Standing outside in the dark watching the snow fall down, or bundled up and shivering in your car when the morning is still dark.
