Inner Volition describes their Governor General's Award ceremony experience with Rush

Inner Volition is the young Canadian band that was featured in a short Rush tribute film called Inner Rush that was produced by the National Film Board of Canada. The film was shown at last month's Governor General's Award ceremony at the National Arts Centre where Rush was presented with a Governor General's Performing Arts Award. Inner Volition was lucky enough to attend the ceremony and also meet Rush. The NAC website posted an article a couple of weeks ago where one of the members of Inner Volition described the experience:

omg honestly best night of my existence last night. As if going to the Governor General's Performing Arts Awards show wasn't enough, we got a bunch of pictures taken of us on the red carpet (awesome), got to watch an awesome awards show with lots of talented Canadian artists (amazing), and met & talked with RUSH (greatest Canadian band of all time)! Talked with Geddy Lee about bass playing for a while, talked with Alex Lifeson about guitar gear for a solid half an hour, and actually got to meet Neil Peart, the most reclusive man in rock!! :D soooo awesome! took a lot of pictures, and they were so great and nice to us, it was unreal! And after, when we went to a diner at 1:00 in the morning, I've never laughed so hard as when I was in the booth with the rest of the freaks (Inner Volition). I love my life.

In case you missed it the first time, the 6.5-minute Inner Rush video is now available on YouTube. You can check it out below or at this link. Thanks to RushFanForever for the heads up.
