After the Orange Peel show I’ll be taking some time off. Spending fall and early winter in Vermont then maybe . . .

Any discussion of Friday’s show, however, would be incomplete without giving a bit of well-deserved praise to the incomparable Grace Potter & The Nocturnals. Playing a set before Brown, the Vermont native defines the terms “charisma” and “swagger.” There’s no doubting either her talent or her sex appeal – and when she puts it together as she does on songs like “Ooh La La (Paris)” or “One Short Night,” you will no doubt be mesmerized and also wonder why she is not a household name. Another highlight of her set was a tip of the hat to Elvis Presley on “Mystery Train.”

Great article about music, food and Southern Ground

“More and more nowadays, musicians are required to brand themselves beyond music, because music is not a commodity the way it used to be,” Potter tells the Scene. “Everyone can go sit in their fuckin’ room and sing into a computer speaker and post it on YouTube and become an overnight sensation.

“So in order to create that gravity that makes people come back to you over and over again, you need to present yourself as a whole human being now — it’s not just about music, it’s about you and everything you care about coming out in a way that’s going to resonate with people. … You have to create a mini-empire for yourself, because just making music isn’t cutting it any more.”

I don’t think EVERYONE can become an overnight sensation. I mean, I could, but not everyone.
