SXSW 2012 Artist Spotlight – Alabama Shakes


Someone gave me the Alabama Shakes EP some weeks ago and I immediately looked to see when they were playing nearby and was semi-surprised and reassured to see that they were playing relatively soon. Little did I know that that EP would catch as much word-of-mouth fire and everyone I know who gave a shit would have tickets, looking for tickets, asking if I had tickets. I didn’t get to go and it bummed me out pretty good. Don’t sleep on Alabama Shakes.

“Straight American southern blues rock with a plain Jane frontwoman who has one of the boldest, most authentically chilling voices to come along in a dog’s age. Reminds me of Janice without the junk.”–SXSW 2012 Short List: A-J by Charles
