Grace Potter and the Nocturnals

Grace Potter sat in the grass with her guitar Wednesday, outside her home in Waitsfield, and wrote a new song. Its called "The Mad Mad River."

For years, Potter had resisted the temptation to write about Vermont, she said. "I thought it was kind of cheesy," Potter said.

But in the sunshine Wednesday, a hint of fall in the air a beautiful moment three days after coming home from the road to flood-stricken Waitsfield, Potter wrote about the place "that is such a deep part of who I am."

The chorus is: "There's hope in the valley after the 100-year flood/because the Mad Mad River runs in our blood."

Potter, 28, will debut the song Oct. 9 at the Flynn Theater in Burlington, where she and her band, the Nocturnals, will play one of two benefit concerts for Vermont flood relief. [Burlington Free Press]

Meanwhile, after Wilco vacated the premises, Grace Potter & the Nocturnals (download an MP3 HERE) headlined their own show outside at Central Park Summerstage aka Rumsey Playfield on Saturday night (9/24). Here are some pictures. They continue below...

Big Head Todd used to go by the name of Biscuit Head, but it was already taken.

Miss Potter's group was so much better before they got "produced" and she went the slutty route.

@3:45 Wow. You were there from the beginning. She used to look bad. Music was shitty then too but you don't notice as much anymore.
