Welcome to hipmuseum.com. Since 2005, A Museum After Dark has been dedicated to the people, places
and poetry found in the music of The Tragically Hip. The museum features every Hip song, the stories which
inspired many of them, and the 351 lyric references drawn from all of the albums and some side projects.
Individual songs and references are displayed in the Hip Directory and One Stop Reference Shop.

The museum is also home to the definitive list of Unreleased Material and many early fan recordings of same.
A few of your Hipstories are also featured. Original long-form pieces are displayed in the Exhibit Hall.

I updated the Hipstories section with a very cool Mr. Gerwin adendum.

"They are the musical chroniclers of our times"
-Peter Mansbridge, October 21, 2001

"The Canadiana references became guide posts into a song's depths, the resulting marriage of language
and music became an invigorating experience that had never been so directly aimed at young Canadians."
-Have Not Been The Same, 2001
