Alabama Shakes

8 p.m. Sunday, December 18. The Old Rock House, 1200 South Seventh Street.

Alabama Shakes can thank some famous fans with a few thousand Twitter followers for the band's recent spike in popularity — both Adele and Bon Iver's Justin Vernon have sung the bluesy, Southern rock quartet's praises of late. But a million retweets can't take the place of Brittany Howard's soulful howl, which hides its sweetness inside sweat and thorns and razor-wire guitar licks. There's a short but loaded four-song EP to the band's credit, but it's enough to raise eyebrows and increase heart rates. Can a band this good stay this good without some indie-famous producer fucking them up or a Black Keys-style media saturation assault? Here's hoping.

Alabama Shakes’ Brittany Howard counts Adele among her fans.
