Happy Canada Day to all my fellow Canucks! And happy Independence Day to our American friends! (The rest of you: get your own holiday!)
I’m taking the day off and will be celebrating a day later in the best possible way: at the Soundgarden concert here in Toronto on Saturday. I don’t know what we did to deserve the newly reformed band starting their tour in our fair city, but I can’t think of a better way to celebrate the country’s birthday.
Don’t worry, though, it’s not just a Canadian thing. Here’s an awesome rendition of Fourth of July from last year’s Lollapalooza show in Chicago. The song definitely isn’t about American independence, but as near as I can tell from the lyrics, it probably is about blowing stuff up (click here if you can’t see the video below). Enjoy and have a great long weekend!
