Earlier today, Grace Potter and her merry band of insomniacs, the Nocturnals, released the lineup for the third annual Grand Point North festival, slated for Burlington's Waterfront Park on September 14 and 15.
But wait, there's more!
Part of what makes GPN (the fest) so great is that GPN (the band) make a point to include a healthy sampling of local acts. This year is no exception. The locavore options this year include Josh Panda & the Hot Damned, Scott Tournet & Ver La Luz, Belle Pines (an offshoot of Brett Hughes and Honky Tonk Tuesday regulars), Alpenglow, Rough Francis, Kat Wright & the Indomitable Soul Band, Natalie Prass featuring Benny Yurco and Paper Castles.
But wait, there's even freakin' more!
This year, Seven Days is teaming up with GPN and Higher Ground Presents for a contest in which fans can vote their favorite local band onto the bill. Stay tuned for details on that.
Tickets for Grand Point North go on sale this Friday, May 17, at highergroundmusic.com. And while you're waiting, here's a slick video for GPN's single, "Stars."
