Only in Buffalo could one of the summer's biggest parties be headlined by a Tragically Hip cover band. Well, Buffalo and Toronto. Or the other 10 Provinces and 3 territories of Canada...whatever that means. We're just saying if you like the Tragically Hip and you are a citizen of the U.S, you must be from Buffalo.Strictly Hip headline this year's Summer Affair at Acqua (the bar formerly known as Harry's Harbour) on August 18.  The event benefits Hospice and tickets and info are available at the Hospice Summer Affair website.

And while we really our excited about the Summer Affair, it really just got us in the mood for some wicked, cool Tragically Hip songs. Especially since the real band will be at Buffalo Place Rocks the Harbor next weekend.

So let us know if you are that guy at the local watering hole who dominates the jukebox with $20 in Hip songs or if you think the Hip are over-rated in the comment section below. In the meantime here's a few of Jack's favorite Tragically Hip songs:
