Grace Potter performs at Red Butte Gardens Thursday night as part of her first solo tour. Potter released her first solo album, Midnight, last year. Before going solo, Potter was the leading lady in the band Grace Potter & the Nocturnals. She teamed up with country artist Kenny Chesney for “You and Tequila,” a number that earned the duo a Grammy nomination.
Potter had a quieter indie pop presence back when she was part of a group, but now she fully asserts herself as part of the rock scene. She sports long, wild blonde hair à la Stevie Nicks with the killer vocals to match. Potter is a Red Rocks veteran and started her own music festival in Vermont with headliners like Old Crow Medicine Show, The Avett Brothers and The Flaming Lips. Her song “Something That I Want” was on the soundtrack for the movie Tangled.
The show is sold out. Show starts at 7:30; gates at 6:30.
