The Weeklies #262
The Weekly Reason The Weeklies #262 Is Kinda Lame. I was out past my bedtime last night. Why?
The Weekly Six Word Concert Review. Grace Potter is the real deal.
The Weekly Expansion On The Six Word Concert Review. Beth and I went to see Grace Potter & The Nocturnals last night. I'm not an uber-fan but I've got a couple of her albums and always found them pleasant. So I wasn't really prepared for just how awesome she is. Within the first five minutes, she amazed everyone with her voice, jammed on a Hammond B-3 organ and strapped on a Flying V and played some mean rhythm guitar. Amazing show.

They are playing here in Toronto next Saturday and my wife and I were thinking of going. I guess I need to go secure some tix.
Did you see her on Live From Daryl's House? I just watched it last week but looking at their site, it seems to have been removed. It was Episode 45 at http://www.livefromdarylshouse.com/. Maybe your web prowess can uncover it. Otherwise there are some youtube videos of select songs from the show.
I was really looking forward to seeing Biffy Clyro who come here on Oct 4 but I waited to see if my wife wanted to go and then the tickets were soldout. Craigslist here I come!
Glad you enjoyed the show!
The US's answer to the Florence + the Machine! The best most authentic artistes are always under-appreciated, sad but true.
