Rock concerts feature pyrotechnics more often than aquatechnics, mostly due to the danger of electrocution and the water solubility of drummers. Stay abreast of modern stage strategies with today’s GrouponLive deal: for $9, you get one general-admission ticket to see Carly Rae Jepsen at the Avenue Theatre on Thursday, November 17, at 7 p.m. (up to a $20 value).
Nominated for two 2010 Juno Awards for Best New Artist and Songwriter of the Year, indie songstress Carly Rae Jepsen originally claimed fame in 2007 as a finalist on Canadian Idol. Performing gold-certified singles "Bucket" and "Tug of War" off her debut album and tracks off her latest studio release, Curiosity, Jepsen charms audiences with her pop sensibility, bubbly personality, and confessional lyrics about unpaid library fees. Solo guitarist Matt Webb from Vancouver-based pop-punk band Marianas Trench kicks off the evening with catchy ditties from his debut EP. Webb rouses crowds with his simple, ’80s-inspired rock songs, surprising Marianas Trench fans with a different sound and crowd slip 'n' sliding techniques.
