Alabama Shakes...coming to a town near you
Wow! Word up dear readers, click on the video above. Good eh? Oh yeah. Alabama Shakes are touring the world and, judging by this recent live clip, you really need to get your asses (and the rest of you...don't just send your ass...that's just wrong) along to a show. It's blues, it's soul, it's gospel...hell...it's just great. Lead singer Brittany Howard has a truly extraordinary voice, part Janis Joplin, part Etta James, and the more you watch this clip the more you'll fall in love with it. L-O-V-E LOVE. Trust me.
They play my 'hood on May 11th at HMV Institute, tickets from Birmingham Promoters. Check the band's website for other dates...they're all over the place over the next few months.
