Alabama Shakes at SXSW


Alabama Shakes has been on everybody's "Bands to Watch" lists, and with good reason. The group's unique blend of soul, rock, and indie styles carries a huge amount of energy. But being a very young group, there has not been much evidence of Brittany Howard and crew's live show. Until now. Their performance at Stubb's at SXSW, has been called "the birth of a legend". And thank goodness, it was all caught on tape. NPR recorded the show and is streaming it on their website, along with a free download link! Enjoy!
