Grace Potter and The Nocturnals are set to release their first-ever live
recording, Live From Skowhegan,
arriving fro Ragged Company/Hollywood Records on Dec. 23 at all digital

Maine, on June 27 of this year, the EP finds the band performing two new songs,
“I Can’t See Through” and “Sugar” as well as four favorites from their two

Based in Burlington, VT, Grace Potter and the Nocturnals have made a name
for themselves as one of New England’s most popular bands, so it was only
fitting they record a debut live EP in their home region. The Skowhegan concert
came as part of a yearlong headlining tour that took the band all over the
country promoting 2007’s This is Somewhere.
You may recall that a little ol’ magazine called Harp named it one of the 50 Best Albums of 2007 and additionally
featured Potter in some provocative photo spreads in the magazine’s subsequent
Potter and the Nocturnals will wrap up 2008 with a three-night New Year’s
stand at the Higher Ground Ballroom in Burlington
Dec. 28, 29 and 31. Happy new year from your friends at BLURT, Grace and gang!
