Racheal Ray Party. Racheal I heard was seen with a dube in her hand. She must have been holding it for someone! Were the sets 30 minutes long? I kid... looks like one hell of a party.

Kayceman>Nice to see you rated Sleepy Sun the best show, those guys are really amazing and if you haven't checked them out, do so now, cause you're missing out. Sad that they canceled Flagstaff this month, but can't wait to see them in April...

Hey Jambase...Ever read Rolling Stone? Best 5 bands of 2010. Grace Potter and the Nocturnals-Jam genre. Just wondering why you wouldn't cover their sxsw show!?!?!?! You consistently over look this band and give insane amounts of coverage to crap like the disco biscuits and Grateful Dead cover bands. When you do cover them you get the song titles wrong and dont really delve into the music. Then 5 or so idiots comment only on Grace's legs. Meanwhile you have two of the best guitarists around in Scott Tournet and Benny Yurco who get consistently overlooked which is unfortunate because they are keeping the jam flame alive with killer/smart jams, vintage tones, and original/new sounds. Check out their band Blues & Lasers if you can't get past the legs. Wake up Jambase. Grow with the times.

I'm sorry about the crying remark. My a**hole filter sometimes kicks in late.

I just wanted to defend Jambase. They give PLENTY of coverage to Grace.

you obviously didn't read the entirety of post my friend hotchkiss. Yes she/they get some coverage, but my point is that they are leading the jam genre into the mainstream more than any other act and no one really seems to be listening very much. Go back and read all the articles and show reviews you so nicely posted and you'll see that the song titles are very frequently wrong and that there is barely any attention payed to the musicianship of the band. Then read the comments of the fine patrons here at Jambase. "Grace is hot" is all you'll find. My point is that the music and band is great and they get completely and consistently overlooked. Also, their show SXSW show was two days after they got into Rolling fucking Stone as one of the 5 best bands of 2010 (jam genre). Wouldn't you think that that would constitute coverage of their show? No...Jambase is too busy reviewing Disco Biscuit album. I'm sorry, but that's just a joke.

I read your entire post. I don't think making a list in rolling stone warrants more coverage on jambase. And I also don't think her band is breaking new ground in the jam genre. And I certainly don't think Grace will be the poster child for jam rock in the mainstream (Dave and Trey already are). I think were both to biased to argue about this.

But this is the crux of this matter. WE ARE JAMBASE! I'm sure the article with the incorrect song titles was submitted by a fan. Most show reviews are submitted by us. Jambase is the publisher, kayceman was the reviewer. He's just one man, he couldn't be at every single show going on at SXSW. You seem really passionate about Grace and the nocturnals, start submitting articles and news. There's a link for submissions in the contact section.

As for the Disco biscuits, I'm not a big fan. But they've been blazing new ground in the jam genre for almost a decade longer then Grace. Like them or not, their innovation is leaps and bounds beyond what Grace is doing. So when they put out a studio record they deserve coverage.

Readwhiteandgreen,

Everything is going to be ok. I understand you are upset about the fact that there is little coverage of Grace Potter in a more positive light here on JamBase. There are many, many, many bands that should be covered on here but don't ANYTHING wrote or reviewed about them. Be glad Rolling Stone even said anything about Grace Potter being one of the best 5 bands of 2010.

claypool83...Grace Potter AND the Nocturnals. The band makes great music. Yurco and Tournet are great guitarists who no one gives any cred to. THATS my point everyone is missing. You also say I should be "glad" about the rolling stone thing like press is just some random free thing thats handed out to anyone on the street regardless of talent. My point is that the rest of the world is picking up on this band and the jam scene continues to regard them as just another drop in the bucket.
