Perhaps because they've been a little preoccupied covering the eternal musical lameness of Justin Bieber, Kesha and the Black Eyed Peas, the writers of Rolling Stone clearly were unaware that when they recently named Grace Potter and the Nocturnals one of the Best New Bands 2010 that dear Ms. Potter and her cohorts have been making seriously great music for more than six years. Commanded by Potter's soul-laced vocals, which are capable of all kinds of sexy coos and belting roars, the Nocturnals have little trouble mixing in jam-based interludes of classic rock, blues, and most recently a little bit of glam. With their upcoming self-titled album getting plenty of promotional push from their new label, Grace Potter and the Nocturnals perform at the Riverrock Festival on Friday, May 14, at 7:40 p.m.
