Rush Rocks Regina!

Rush is one of the greatest bands ever, and I just had the chance to see them live in my hometown! Rush played Regina, Saskatchewan on Sunday, May 25th. This was the second time I have seen Rush in concert, both times on the Snakes and Arrows tour. I made the trek to Calgary to see them last summer. I did not believe they'd come to Regina on this tour! Their show in Regina was even better than Calgary was! It was also louder (and so was the crowd). Everyone had a great time, and the setlist was unbelievable! Subdivisions, 2112, Red Barchetta, and 3 hours beyond just those gems! Thanks Rush!

Rush is a Canadian (and proud of it) band. All three members: Alex Lifeson, Geddy Lee, and Neil Peart, are world class musicians. They are also one of my absolute favorite bands.

I find it hilarious and odd that I get constantly questioned for being female and liking Rush. I have not faced too much opposition for being a female political candidate or pre-law student, but apparently if a girl likes Rush, all hell brakes loose!

Well, that's just too bad, because I think that Rush is one of Canada's greatest strengths. Great bands inspire society to become more involved with the arts. The Green Party has an amazing platform for enriching Canadian culture and improving the lives of the many very deserving and talented Canadian artists across the entire arts spectrum. I will write more about that soon in a new section called "Vision Green Eyes." It wil be my take on the Green Party of Canada Platform called "Vision Green."

It is too late to write more! Goodnight Regina Rush fans!
