No Saving Grace

via twitter: Grace Potter's people done me wrong! Albany show canceled so her Management could put in their own band. SUCKS!

I used to be a fan of Grace Potter and the Nocturnals. I won't be attending tonight's Alive at 5. My faith in the group was shaken when news broke earlier this week that they wouldn't go on if the opening act wasn't changed. Red flag! Afraid of being upstaged? Today I read the groups new album is being produced by T-bone Burnett. It would make more sense if T were producing a Donna Summer comeback album. The new Nocturnals album is their seventh. They are one of many musical groups whose best works have gone unheard by most of the public. Maybe the new album will click with the people who promote albums, which could be where T's talent and name will come in handy. Should that happen in a big way for Grace, it will be a golden opportunity to harvest the best tracks from the previous six and make one killer-keeper of an album...

Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
