gracepotterrothbury @AndyShore The last two times I attempted to see Grace Potter & the Nocturnals I was thwarted. First it was a cancelled show at Martyr’s in Chicago when Grace’s voice was out. Next it was Bonnaroo, when my casted foot wasn’t making it down to Tennessee. This time, nothing was going to keep me from Grace Potter.

 

She took the stage in a black, sequenced disco outfit looking like the rock star she is. The photographer next to me asked what had happened to the sweet, little hippie chick. She sang while banging on a tambourine, moved to the keys and back over to center stage with her Flying V guitar.

 

Singing rocking hits like “Joey” and “Ah Mary” Potter flashed her pearly whites at the crowd, instantly winning them over. She even made feedback charming. She told the crowd that “the stomach of Rothbury is rumbling wtih some high pitched attitude.” She slowed things down a little with songs like “Stop the Bus” and “Apologies,” but still had the crowd going.

 

Potter asked the crowd if they wanted to hear some new material. She followed up with “Medicine,” the title track off the new album. The rocking new tune has me looking forward to the new album, produced by T Bone Burnett. She kept things rolling with “Sweet Hands,” a personal favorite of mine that segued into their patented full band drum jam. A cover of Jefferson Airplane’s “White Rabbit” saw Potter embodying another Grace (Slick). The Nocturnals closed with Nothing But The Water (Pts. I and II). It doesn’t matter how good they play, or for how long, Grace Potter & the Nocturnals always leave me wanting more.
