Jenn Grant @ CBC

For Jenn Grant fans old and new (perhaps newly converted from my recent recording?), I have a couple of older FM captures of Jenn Grant performances for the CBC.

The first, recorded at the Rebecca Cohn Auditorium in Jenn’s hometown of Halifax, was hot on the heels of the Honeymoon Punch album release — only some three odd weeks after the album hit shelves! The set was recorded by CBC for Canada Live and is here as it aired.

The second is when Jenn joined (now disgraced) CBC host Jian Ghomeshi about 15-months into the album’s cycle, while it was up for 4 East Coast Music Awards and shortly after being listed as contenders for the Polaris and Junos Awards, for a quick song and short interview for popular morning radio program Q at the Capitol Theatre in Moncton, New Brunswick.

Coming back to this blog after so many years has been really interesting.

As I sort through an archive of unreleased recordings, I’ve re-discovered shows that I’ve entirely forgotten I’d been to. Among them was Jenn Grant‘s show at the Winter Garden Theatre to promote The Beautiful Wild in 2012. In trying to recall details about the show (ie. where I sat specifically), I tried to pull up a digital receipt for my ticket purchase.

While I couldn’t find it, I did find a conversation I had where I lamented that tickets for the show had gone on sale on Groupon for a fraction of what I’d paid for them — and the discounted tickets were only a handful of rows behind my seat. But I wasn’t mad because I’d unnecessarily spent extra money; rather, I was planning to bail on the show altogether and sell my ticket and chances of finding a last minute buyer now where nil.

Jenn Grant @ Horseshoe Tavern

. : : February 19th, 2010 : : . The Horseshoe Tavern had filled up by the start of Rae Spoon‘s opening set, quickly limiting my options for taping positions. At the Horseshoe, I usually get on the dance floor area directly in front of the stage and tape off the right speaker stacks. Wasn’t happening. No way I was getting in there. So I took advantage of those heading to the bar between Olenka And The Autumn Lovers and Rae’s sets to position myself by the left stacks. Because the way the room is laid out, the left speakers are aimed away from the stage…
