Don't let Grace Potter's good looks or age fool you. This woman has a pair of pipes that would knock over a steam engine and a soul of a woman three times her age. I saw her on a whim at the Roxy last year, and the show was carved onto the stone walls of my memory as one of the best shows of 2008. (The only other competition being Sigur Ros. Yes, I'm serious.) And hands down the best show that I have ever seen grace the Roxy's stage.

At the ripe old age of 26, Potter is about to put out her fourth album with her Nocturnals this spring. I chatted with her while she was getting her hair done for the cover art photo shoot. We talked about her upcoming album, the importance of cover art, promoters with mafioso ties, and man boobs. Here is some of what was said.
