I hope Hear of Glass pops up somewhere.....Blondie was Keri's favorite band.....We saw them in the Pats old stadium a number of years ago.....it was funny. A whole bunch of people were there to see some bands that were not the headliners.
Melissa Etheridge was the warm up for Blondie but a bunch of people were leaving before that so Keri and her friend went down to the first stadium row and asked people for their tickets so we could get on the field. She ending up getttin us 3 tix in the 2nd row!! We move down there, and Keri's got her Vultures shirt on and is standing on her chair...Debbie comes out and starts singing and sees Keri with the shirt, dancing on the seat and points to her, nods and smiles!!! Keri was floating the rest of the week!!

This setlist and mini review is from eric - thanks for sharing eric - and hope to see you posting here and even better at a show real soon. Thanks again!
4 now heres the setlist from sat night, unless i missed something- (i do confess i had several beers): medicine, sweet hands, oasis, apologies, only luv, goodbye kiss, that phone, one short night, tiny light, big white gate, ah mary, hot summer night, heart of glass, paris, encore 1-watching u, white rabbit, nothing but the water parts 1 & 2, encore 2-stop the bus.
as for a review ill say the most diverse crowd ive ever seen at a rock show and EVERYONE was loving it. most bands are a little tight in nyc, grace dealt with it by coming out swinging and never let up. they werent stiff at all but that said it was a typical NYC show in that they werent quite as safe as in boston or the DC show, which webster hall basically rivalled both, but prob comes up at a not-too distant-second if they are tied for first. songs like summer night and that phone were featured as opposed to the duet "things i never needed" w cat p or dock of the bay. they skipped the acoustic set, approporiately so as this was not the vibe. she played acoustic for one short night wit hthe full band electric. every person in the place was lucky they dropped heart of glass which i was secreltly hoping for after hearing the DC show. the second enocre was stop the bus w grace on "the v" which im not sure if she always does that or usulally goes w the acoustic guitar. was sik. 2 full hours went way too fast. i unfortunately missed Hacienda, but heard them online .they throw it down as well.
yes, as i was telling snowbird earlier, i was there everyone was partyin and i will add that someone on FB wrote earlier that the floor was shaking and that is absolutely true. i will also add 4 u hard cores we had a sik ass show and while seemingly they do play alot of the songs almost or every show, nothing is safe as far as the setlist goes, especially w the new album out. i have been listening to nothing but gpn for the past 2 months and just off the top of my head can tell u id have taken another full set consisting of joey, 2:22, mastermind, "things" (that one i really wanted) and a couple other wildcards. but no doubt the heart of glass was worthy of any sacrifice, the whole crowd was really into it as soon as she started to sing it. then they drilled it home with paris and that must be pretty crazy every night but by the end on saturday the whole place was really feeling it. my only other real show was outside at grand central station during earth day so i dont have much to compare it to. my first thoughts as a comparison to the shows on the archive is that its up there with boston and dc, but i need to hear the ny one more as a recording. boston might take them all set list aside they were absolutely on fire in the house of blues, whatever was going on in there i dont know, but im sure glad it was up on the archive for download. the january shows from jamaica, connecticut and woodstock (as well as new years eve) that are on the archives are also really magical and in 4 or 5 short months seem to already be way back in the rear view and are basically archival at this point. and that is basically how i discovered this band i saw grace at the last jammys a while back, liked the little i heard but didnt really act on it for a while. im sure i have even missed at least one if not more GPN sets opening 4 mule, maybe not but i bet i did. then one day i was playing "internet archives roulette" just looking for new bands to discover. it landed on a GPN show from jamaica, i think 1-18-10 and it took about 30 seconds 4 me to realize i had been pretty oblivious to something really special that had been right in front of me for quite some time. so im just happy now the band is doing well and theyll be around for a while. and that they're from vt! if they're having fun now, well i think pretty big things are headed their way sooner than later so it should be interesting. then there is blues and lasers. and that is a story for another day

Alright eric! glad to see you hear and telling it from your perspective! archive.org is a wonderful thing isn't it! I think more than a few people have found themselves tuning into this band a whole lot more because of it.
Blues and Lasers - yes that is another great story - since I first heard them live in 2008 they have just morphed into a really tight great sound - just think what they'd sound like if this weren't a side project . . . .

webster hall rocked the house talked to the band after the show.they were so pumped. it was a high energy show.thanks to the band for puttin it out there.
06-16-2010, 08:11 PM
It's up on the archive!
Big thanks to Jeff Prater for taping the show!
This was an awesome show. I was a little upset I didn't get to hear stop the bus during the set, thought for sure it must be saved for the encore, and then those two songs went by and didn't get it. But no worries there was a second encore to squeeze one of my favorite songs in!
Was waiting to see if the band would show at the billiard hall across the street, anyone know if they went?

Some amazing photos here from Erica Bowman

those are some sweet ass pictures! THANK YOU 2 all involved...and the recording, we cant say enuff good about these audience tapers. the show sounds amazing- only thing is he thought the show was over and shut down his rig before firing it back up...so on track 21 he missed some of grace's chatter/dedication and the beginning of stop the bus. gotta wait till the house lights and house music come on in nyc on a saturday night my man! especially when the light tech is dimming/blinking the lights to get the crowd to cheer the band back out on the stage. still a great recording though , thanks again.
and i didnt realize "gumbo moon" was a separate song from "watchin u," had no idea. cool.
