Jenn Grant tags along w/ The Weakerthans

Canadian readers can attest that for years now John K. Samson and his Weakerthans have been among the nation's finest songwriters. While the band's latest, Reunion Tour, is difficult to rank against their back catalogue, it certainly retains the carefully constructed lyrics we've come to expect from these vets. The band sounds a little more polished than usual, production maybe? Whatever the case...... the Winnipeggers have a reputation of showcasing up and coming Canadian talent as opening acts on tour, and the Reunion Tour tour shows are no different, bringing forth Jenn Grant, whose voice can be described as something close to Feist, but with something a bit different to distinguish her own style.
