The Josh Ritter show on Tuesday night was pretty packed, the show sold out. I'm sure Jenn Grant, who opened for Ritter, is talented and it's a shame that she wasn't well received by the crowd. But to the sound guy, whom I overheard telling her that "it was a rude crowd" who just "wouldn't shut up," screw off. It's a bar and people talk. I know she's a musician but people chose not to listen. That's their right. The majority of people shut it for Josh Ritter - maybe it just says something about who they were there to see? I love live shows and appreciate what musicians have to deal with sometimes when performing. But let's not sugarcoat it for a performer, who maybe just wasn't that captivating, by blaming it on the crowd.

Someone who knows you need more than just a guitar to earn a crowd's interest
