grace potter + the nocturnals

I feel like I'm so lucky to have had the chance to see this band for the third time in a year.

I spent New Year's Eve 2008 with them in South Burlington, saw them in Pittsburgh, and introduced my brother to their music last night at Higher Ground.

There aren't many bands that I would continue to shell out money for after seeing them twice, but the magic and music that they create is well worth all of it.

I'm not quite sure how to describe their music.  It has some country influences, and incredible guitar licks and organ pounding.  Grace Potter could melt your heart with her soaring vocals.  Seeing them live is pretty much mind blowing.  Really.  Mind blowing.

There aren't many things in life that are better than an incredible show where you dance for hours and feel like time hasn't passed.

What's the most amazing show you've ever seen?

I really recommend that you check out Stop the Bus and Mastermind.  They have a new album coming out in 2010 that should be life changing.  You can bet I'll actually pay for that one.
