Grace & her Nocturnals slick in Detroit


Grace Potter & the Nocturnals performed at Detroit's St. Andrew's Hall this week, giving Motown one part sugar and two parts killer rock show. If you haven't heard of this group, you're completely lame-dip ("sauce" is too mainstream for the musical pretentiousness I was going for). But, I'll cut you some slack and catch you up on the awesomeness of the soulful rock group and it's fearless lead singer, Grace Potter. (You can also click the fancy link at the beginning of this paragraph to peruse the band's website and - hint - buy some of their music.)

Musically, Grace is a 3008 mixture of Nancy Wilson, Stevie Nicks, Robert Plant and Jesus. She has the kind of voice you crave on vinyl. And the chemistry of the band (including Grace on organ and tambourine, Matt Burr on drums, Cat Popper on bass and Scott Tournet and Benny Yurco on guitar) is clearly magical. Grace may have lead billing, but the Nocturnals ain't no Kelly Rowlands.
