TVD Live Shots:
Grace Potter and
Devon Gilfillian at
The Anthem, 1/25

Grace Potter brought her considerable talents to Washington, DC’s Anthem this past weekend, touring in support of her new release, Daylight. In tandem she brought one very special guest for the evening, Devon Gilfillian

Potter’s latest album was released to critical acclaim in October of 2019 and is a big step in a new direction, leaning more than ever toward the pop side of her blues-rock roots. For Saturday’s performance she was in excellent form and simply as exuberant as ever. Dancing straight through the first few songs of the set, she appeared elated during “Love is Love” and “Back to Me” which proceeded the title track of the new record, “Daylight.”

Potter even honored some older fan favorites such as the soulful “Big White Gate” off of 2007’s This is Somewhere which was a request just four songs in. Throughout the evening Potter also seemed to glow and radiate from within, and it’s obvious that her new band suits her well as she’s hit a whole new stride. Daylight was released via Fantasy Records and is available on gold-tiger vinyl.

Devon Gilfillian is the opener for this leg of Potter’s tour. His vocals are fantastic and soulful and notably, he joined Grace on stage about halfway through her set for a stunning version of Etta James’ “I’d Rather Go Blind.” Gilfillian is on tour promoting his release, Black Hole Rainbow which too is available on vinyl.
