John Grant played a very memorable gig to a sold out Róisín Dubh in Galway last night. He gave a thrilling and touching performance; honest, bare songs which let us look into his world of pain, emotion and hurt. John Grant is gay and was diagnosed wtih HIV positive and and many of his songs deal with former lovers, the struggles of being gay.
Roisin Dubh was the perfect venue for a John Grant gig; the audience stands two feet from the stage which makes his intimate songs more touching. John Grant also played some more lively songs, heavy on electronics and synthesizers, especally the song Glacier, where the music represents “a glacier moving through you, and carving out deep valleys.”
GMF is a John Grant song. (You should know what GMF stands for)
