Mattie Groves at Third & Lindsley 

Seldom Seen

Seldom Seen
Mattie Groves is the sort of band that doesn’t play shows too often. In fact, it’s been a couple of years since they’ve done one, and the most recent was billed as their swan song. But musicians have been known to change their minds about these things. Singer and songwriter Nick Giaconia decided to give it another go, which is no small thing for him. A few years ago, surgery left one of his vocal chords intermittently paralyzed, and, as he puts it, that gives the question of him singing “an element of uncertainty.” So the times when he does sing are special. Rounding out this straight-ahead roots-rock band are a trio of top-notch guitarists—Dave Perkins (who produced an album for Giaconia a decade back), Vince Gill and Jimmy Abegg—along with drummer Billy Thomas and keyboardist Pete Wasner from Gill’s band. If the last show is any indication, it’ll be a loose and celebratory affair.
