Grace Potter & The Nocturnals at the Waterfront

I didn't get to go to this show, unfortunately. I had a paper to write, and all the usual excuses. From all accounts, it was a fantastic show, and it produced a new GPTN cover, this from Tom Petty. This is classic Grace Potter stuff - energetic, exciting and sounding fantastic as always. The second night of the festival, Grace sang with the Derek Trucks Band, on their song Key to the Highway.

In other related news, the band recent did an interview with the local newspaper of the Mad River Valley, the Valley Reporter, where they said the following:

Grace Potter and the Nocturnals will head back to the studio to record their next album. Although it's still in the concept stage, Potter does have one promise: "We're a rock and roll band so I can guarantee some new rock and roll." The band is adding new songs to their repertoire all the time, but not all material is destined for an album. Some songs will fit on a soundtrack, or stand alone as a single.

This is exciting - I'll be interested to see what they'll be rotating through the concerts this fall. Read the full interview here.
