Braving a ton of rain and less-than-ideal lightning conditions at the venue, our friend Derek McCabe went and shot the Grace Potter & the Nocturnals show last night at Electric Factory in Philly. His reputation proceeded him enough to let the tour manager convince him to shoot the entire show, thus bringing back a seriously stellar set of Potter and all of her band mates rocking through an excellent show. These photos show what she’s capable of, that’s for sure…

Read on for his full photoset.

    Great looking photo’s. I’ve heard some of her stuff but never seen her before. This looks like something I am going to have to check out.

  • The more i look the more i wanna see. Seems like  Derek McCabe knows how to capture beauty in a surreal timelock… I’ve seen some of his portfolio on line before, and it seems what you get from his photos is portrayed with class and passion…From skank to lucious queen is all in the style of the artist. Only then in the eye of the beholder :0)
