ALABAMA SHAKES new album Boys & Girls while eating some free pizza from Two Boots! We will also have a free 7" to giveaway with purchase of the LP. The party starts @ 7pm.
Sprouting from a high school friendship, the Alabama Shakes are proving to the world that they aren't just a small town band. In October, the Shakes gave a performance at the CMJ Festival in New York City that earned a glowing review from the New York Times. Jon Pareles described the band as "a thunderbolt dressed in bluejeans," with music that's "aching when it’s slow and growling and whooping when it’s fast." NPR named them one of the best bands of 2011, while MTV called them one of the top bands to look for in 2012.
Now, with expectations at fever pitch, the Alabama Shakes have delivered Boys & Girls - now available through ATO Records. From the heart-rending title song to such stomps as “Rise to the Sun,” the album demonstrates the sense of groove and space the band learned from their idols, along with a blistering force and emotion that simply can’t be learned. The release of Boys & Girls marks the arrival of a major new rock and roll band. To the members themselves, though, what's been most exciting has been the reaction they have felt on stage, whether tiny local dates or under the glare of the media.
Come hear the album @ OV TONIGHT at 7pm! This is their record release party!! See you there
