If not, let the Alabama Shakes remind you. They’re selling out shows across the country and their debut album isn’t even out for another couple months. I managed to see these blues-infused soul grabbers play a jam packed show at the Indy in San Francisco last night. Best overpriced scalped ticket I ever bought!
Don’t believe the hype? Are you in Lefsetz’s corner? All due respect to differing musical tastes, but you’d have to be made of stone to hear a song like “Be Mine” and think that this is a band that’s “not ready.” They sound like they were born ready.
Go see the Alabama Shakes, if you can. Pick up their album Boys & Girls when it drops the second week of April. And peep my photos from last night’s show:
