GRACE POTTER & THE NOCTURNALS
Potter’s powerful Janis Joplin-esque vocals and captivating stage presence (along with bluesy instrumentals) light up the Riviera.
1/18 The sultry songstress is back to moonlighting with the Nocturnals in true rock form. Their newest release, The Lion, the Beast, the Beat, is the Vermont band’s best yet, with roaring riffs and jaded arrangements that invoke Potter’s lurching Grace Slick/Janis Joplin howl. At 7:30. $28.50. Riviera, 4746 N Racine. jamusa.com.
