HOPEWELL JUNCTION, NEW YORK – MAY 2011: Grace Potter and the Nocturnals’ self-titled album – their third studio release – debuted at #19 on the US Billboard Top 200 upon its release and set the band off on a string of sold-out shows and television appearances that show no sign of slowing, including recent performances on The Late Show with David Letterman, Conan and Emmy-nominated music show Live from The Artists Den. The band’s brand of rock gives listeners plenty to hook into, and the live show amplifies that effect by the fiery charisma of lead singer Potter at her vintage Hammond B3 and her band of talented players. The group is currently packing theaters across the U.S., and it is easy to extrapolate that the next go-around will require much larger venues. Front-of-house engineer Sam Leonard, who frequently also handles every other aspect of the band’s technical underbelly with more

Sound for U of Alabama’s Historic Foster Auditorium

University of Alabama Foster Auditorium

Tuscaloosa, AL – For many, the University of Alabama’s Foster Auditorium is remembered as a “ground zero” for the civil rights movement of the early 1960s. It was on June 11, 1963 in front of these doors that then-Governor George Wallace made his infamous Stand in the Schoolhouse Door, attempting to resist integration by blocking two black students from enrolling in the University.

Built in 1939, the hall was home to UA’s basketball teams in the 1970s and 1980s, as well as regularly hosting graduations, lectures, concerts and other large gatherings. The building is named for Autherine Lucy Foster, the first black student to be accepted and enrolled at UA.

With the opening of the neighboring Coliseum, the building eventually lost its standing as the campus’ largest indoor structure, and in recent years had fallen into disrepair. Recently, Foster Auditorium underwent a major renovation, reopening as home to more
