Grace Potter and the Nocturnals 6-2-2006 @ World Cafe
Just how much fun are Grace Potter and the Nocturnals? They kicked my ass at Bonnaroo, and since then I've been thoroughly enjoying their albums and live recordings. She's been all over the blogs, including this one, so I doubt a lengthy bio is necessary. In short, this is one feisty gal with a fatty B-3, supported by a talented and energetic backing band. As much as I like the studio albums, I have to say their live shows are even better.
Recently my friend Adrienne pointed me in the direction of their performance on NPR's World Cafe program, and I decided to capture the stream and cut it up into tracks for the sake of convenience. I thought C&T's readers would enjoy this too, so it's available below for download. Good Lord I can't wait 'til these guys make it to the southeast.
