Meredith Luce and Jim Bryson at the GCTC

March 14th, 2009

Last Sunday was a memorable evening at the Great Canadian Theatre Company. I will sheepishly admit that it was my first time setting foot into the building, but I hope it won’t be my last. The café there is run by the drool-inducing Thyme & Again. The stage housed a quaint mid-century kitchen, which was there because of the current play at the theatre. And the sound was absolutely outstanding.

We were there to watch two of our local favourites play a show as part of a series called “Acoustic Waves”, run by the Ottawa Folk Festival.

Meredith Luce kicked things off with an Emm Gryner / Cyndi Lauper mash-up — as a challenge from cbc host Alan Neal. Her set was terrific, and left me wishing it could’ve been longer.

And then Jim Bryson came along, putting to use the array of instruments and gadgets that lay amidst the kitchen appliances — a veritable one-man show. (Though he did get some audience participation by handing out handmade shakers, made of mini ginger ale cans, organic rice and duct tape…)

The show’s highlights will be aired on CBC2’s Canada Live, and will eventually be available online too.

Overall, a great night, and encouragement to go out and get a little more cultured. What an amazing space the GCTC is!

    Do you have a spam problem on this site; I also am a blogger, and I was wanting to know your situation; we have developed some nice methods and we are looking to trade strategies with others, why not shoot me an e-mail if interested.

    Sweet blog! I found it while browsing on Yahoo News. Do you have any tips on how to get listed in Yahoo News? I’ve been trying for a while but I never seem to get there! Cheers

    To many, this means staying at home staring at
    the blank walls dreaming about winning the lottery.

    If something were to go wrong you would be alerted by phone, email or even text message so you could rapidly take action. Not to be
    brushed under the rug, there are also semi-dedicated and business hosting options, but those often still offer the same as a
    shared hosting plan, only with more space. This could pose both a physical and moral
    problem for the owners of the children’s website. You will
    have to invest more on hardware and security and regularly carry out maintenance checks.
    Shared web hosting is the most commonly used web hosting service and also
    called virtual hosting. You have a place where you can test your
    web projects, a place to store all the multimedia files that
    are played at network-enabled players in your home, and a separate machine to run a torrent client.
    The load on 1 server is usually well balanced by installing a different server.
    However, if other sites that are listed on your server are blacklisted for illegal activities such as spamming or generating illegal codes, then that are going to affect your website too.
    Configuration: With a shared host, one will not have many options in the way of changing their settings.
    Since there are not many resources to create advanced websites with a
    free hosting service, it’s best for personal sites, such as those
    for family or hobbies.
