Paradise In December

A quick heads up on a couple of not to be missed shows at the Paradise in Boston in December.

Beginning tomorrow (December 6th) Grace Potter and the Nocturnals begin a three night run. This is a golden opportunity to catch this awesome folk rock band at the top of their game. The group’s latest CD, “This Is Somewhere” is remarkable .. and, in my mind, features the best rock single of the year, “Ah Mary.” Vermont-based, but right at home here in Boston, GPTN deserves a packed house every night. The national press keeps calling them a “best kept secret” .. let’s start making some noise and get the word out!

Later this month, The Sheila Devine regroups for two night’s at The Dice (December 28, 29). Aaaron Perrino and company tore up the Hub from 1997-2003 with searing indie rock. The song “Hum” became a rock radio staple. A lot of folks, including myself, thought these guys were going to be BIG. It never happened, but the quality of music was always excellent. Perrino went on to form the group Dear Leader .. a fine outfit in their own right .. but I’m psyched he’s reforming TSD.

The Paradise is the perfect spot for these two bands to turn it loose. Pick a choice spot on the upper level, throw back a few beers, and have a great time.
