Ms. Potter and company.


Two concerts announced today for Brewery Ommegang, and they're back to back:

Grace Potter
Grace Potter and the Nocturnals are lined up for a show at Brewery Ommengag July 25. Tickets are $35 ahead -- they go on sale this Friday (April 26.)

The rock/blues/folk band's popularity has been rising steadily since it started in Vermont about 10 years ago as an indie. The album it released last summer debuted at #17 on the Billboard's Top 200 album. And a show at The Egg this past February sold out in just a few hours.

The Ommegang show starts at 7 pm (gates at 5 pm) on July 25. In addition to the $35 advance ticket, there's also $10 advance camping. The day of prices are $40 and $20.

The group is also set to play a show at Tanglewood August 19 with Josh Ritter.

Black Crowes

Update: This show has been moved to September 5.

The next day, July 26, The Black Crowes are set to play a show at the brewery. Tickets are $45 / $10 camping ahead ($50 and $20 day of) -- they also go on sale this Friday (April 26).

It's been 23 years since Shake Your Money Maker was released, long enough that the band decided it was time release an old-songs-but-acoustic-this time album last year.

Openers are The London Souls.

Also at Ommegang this summer: Americana band Old Crow Medicine Show is slated to be there May 26. Openers are Chuck Mead and His Grassy Knoll Boys, and Driftwood. Tickets are $35 ahead ($45 with camping).
