Grace Potter in Camden, July 2010
Grace Potter and the Nocturnals recently played a set at Camden's XPoNential Music Festival. A set of pictures from that show is in this post.
Coming up, the band have scattered, but many shows scheduled in August, September and October. Those include North Coast Music Festival in Chicago, ACL in Texas, and a September 5th show at Gelston Castle Estate in Mohawk, NY (aka the Moe Down).
There's no public shows announced in NYC, but there is one that's private taking place at a secret location on Thursday, August 19 at 7:15 pm. I don't know where it is, and BrooklynVegan is not affiliated with The Artists Den in any way, but they are granting some BrooklynVegan readers the chance to win tickets to the show for the price of a whole bunch of your personal information (which even if you enter, there is no chance of you winning). Winners will be emailed venue details directly from The Artists Den.
The show, "Live from the Artists Den" airs in NYC Fridays at 9:30 pm on WNET Channel 13. Listings and more info/previews are at their website. More pictures from Camden and all Grace Potter tour dates below...

"Jerry Douthett was initially very angry with his pet Jack Russell after his pet pooch ran up to him and chomped off his big toe -- but after going to hospital to treat the wound, it appears his furry best friend has actually saved his life.Dr. Dog headline the free show on Governors Island tonight (8/15). If you can't be there, you can always stream it live on ConverseRadio.com.
Douthett, a 48-year-old musician from Rockford, USA, had an infection in his foot for weeks, but hadn't wanted to seek any medical care for it, but after coming back home after a night out drinking and celebrating, Kiko, his dog, thought it best to take matters into his own hands. Or mouth, as it turned out.
Unbeknownst to Mr Douthett, he was in fact suffering from undiagnosed Type 2 diabetes, and the condition is now being treated thanks to his faithful friend's seemingly unfaithful act.
And if you were worrying how exactly the canine 'operation' occurred, don't worry -- Douthett was so drunk he has passed out on his sofa. At which point Dr Dog, who knew some free anesthetic when he saw some, took the opportunity to bite off the big toe." [Asylum]
