    Ditto. We saw Grace Potter twice - if you liked her at the Fest, you have GOT to see her in a smaller venue!

    LOL - the same day you post this, I just noticed that Grace Potter is coming to my town to play in a small venue in early June. However, I wasn't a big fan of the replays I saw of GP, so now I'm wondering if I should go back and rewatch...

    You are lucky, most of her tour is as a warm-up at big venues. Check these - still not as good as live. The Paris video with the most hits has dancing girls that don't accompany her on tour:

    Very nice voice! Tickets are going for $25... not sure I'll make it. Just thought it was odd that I noticed that she was coming and then I saw your post. Maybe it is meant for me to be there!

    The link doesn't link right -- go to Grace Potter and the Nocturnals and click on "video." There are a few really good videos. "Paris" is one of their bigger hits.

    Saw them. After I clicked your link, I had to click 'ENTER' and it took me to her home page. She's got a great voice. What I've come to appreciate is the the jazz music. I have a new appreciation for jazz.

    Maybe what they should do is start small.. Increase first weekend to 4 days too.. If there are enough demand, maybe think about linking the 2 weekends... The facilities are already there..

    The Montreal International Jazz Festival is 11 days with a lot of free concert and some paid concerts..

    Home - Festival International de Jazz de Montréal
    That looks like a true Jazz Festival; probably more civilized! The only artist I recognize is Johnny Clegg - love him, though I wouldn't think of him as Jazz either.

    They had Stevie Wonder for the headliner about 3 years ago at a free concert. It was packed and fortunatley I was staying at the Hyatt overlooking the place de Art where it is held so was able to get myself and some friends there after dinner.

    It has become a little mixed but the free concerts are often great and runs for week and half so you can catch something.
