Alabama Shakes Announce Fall Tour Dates
I have a few music predictions for 2012: Baroness’ stellar new album will be overlooked my most critics, Bon Iver will release a song through Third Man Records, and Alabama Shakes will be the best breakthrough act of the year.
The Athens, Alabama-based blues quartet have hit most of the major festivals in America, toured with Jack White, and they’re debut album Boys And Girls has been at the top of many “Top Albums Of The Year So Far” lists. They’re beloved by critics, audiences, fans, musicians; Alabama Shakes are unstoppable this year. They’re currently on tour (check out the upcoming dates on their website) but they’ve just announced some more for the East Coast and Central Time Zone area. So check ’em out if you can! I missed them at Bonnaroo, but that doesn’t mean you have to!
