Sarah Harmer + Hey Rosetta! Photo Recap [11.9.10]

On Tuesday, two Canadian acts that I wasn’t very familiar with played at Port City Music Hall. Openers Hey Rosetta! (whose album I acquired and enjoyed quite a bit shortly before the show) are a more-than-capable rock band with strong acoustic elements and songs that range stylistically from soft folk to alt-country-tinged rockers. Headliner Sarah Harmer‘s experience was clear in her performance – note that she played with a strong, full band backign her – warranting a full 6-member opening act. Despite a light crowd, it seemed that everybody there was a huge fan of Harmer’s, crowding the stage from the instant her set started. If only the openers got the same attention – they certainly deserved it. If they make it back (perhaps with a show at a smaller venue with some drawing locals) they should fare better. Read on for photos!

    such an awkward show. felt pretty bad for sarah, but she didnt let it bring her down and still put on a great set. hopefully it doesnt discourage her from returning. would be great to see her in empire or space.

  • Agreed. She’s a pro, but a smaller room would have been more suitable, at least this time around.

  • Hey. Company of Thieves played to 15 people or less at PCMH and they came back with OK Go last month.

    I saw her a few years ago @ the Big Easy, it was a great show. I would have gone to see her @ PCMH but I really can’t stand going to shows there, the stage isn’t high enough. I’m a tall woman and I can’t see the performers, it’s a terrible set-up. I refuse to pay $15 or whatever to hear the music and not see anything.

    hah, well rebecca, there was maybe 20 people on the floor and spread far apart like everyone had a contagious life threatening disease or something, so you would have been able to see fine from anywhere

    dylan, when you are a support act you have no choice in where you go, hence why they returned
