The Bowery Presents Live Features Alabama Shakes

April 17th, 2012

Although they’re really from small town Athens, Ala., Alabama Shakes seem to have come out of nowhere. Their debut LP, Boys & Girls, just came out last week, and there’s deservedly been a lot of buzz behind them—mainly due to Brittany Howard’s dynamic voice—ever since they played The Bowery Ballroom at last year’s CMJ Music Marathon. And today they’re featured on The Bowery Presents Live. See them, above, playing “Boys & Girls” in the coat-check closet at Mercury Lounge and then be sure to watch them discuss their fast start and musical roots, plus a playlist of the band’s choice cuts. And make sure you subscribe to The Bowery Presents Live to stay in touch.
