Grace Potter & the Nocturnals 

Odd as it seems, one of the most country country-rock bands going these days hails from the stoic Yankee province of Waitsfield, Vt. Considering how perfectly its style toes the Nashville line, though, Grace Potter and the Nocturnals are likely to be heading for the warmer climes of Music City any day now. At its best, the band brings country back to its creative heyday of the '70s, when Neil Young buzzsawed his way through traditional twang, and good-time girl Bonnie Raitt hollered and wielded her axe in a most unladylike way. San Francisco's acoustic, pensive folk-rocker Brandi Shearer opens. The depth of her smooth, low-pitched vocals is like warm molasses and is an excellent counterpoint to Potter's sandpaper wail. Tickets $10. — Fensterstock 9 p.m. Tue., Jan. 22

The Parish at the House of Blues, 225 Decatur St., 310-4999;
