If you close your eyes and listen to Alabama Shakes you feel as if you have been transported to another era. It’s the type of music that transcends genre. Frontwoman, Brittany Howard’s voice is effortlessly epic- reminiscent of the tortured textures of the likes of Janis Joplin and Aretha Franklin.
Today at 2pm pacific time, Alabama Shakes will be performing live for only 275 fans at Red Bull Sound Space located in the KROQ radio station’s broadcast facility in Culver City along with a Q and A with the band.
Chances are that you are NOT one of the lucky fans selected to attend the show but you can stream the show LIVE, worldwide on JankySmooth.com and for 24 hours after the performance. I WILL be attending the show (nya nya nya) but media outlets such as Janky Smooth have been asked not to review or cover the performance in any way so make sure you don’t miss the live stream or the footage that will be looping for the next 24 hours. I’m beyond stoked that I will be able to live preview the new material from the new Alabama Shakes album, Sound and Color that is being released on April 21st on ATO Records.
This is just another example of the dope, visionary platform that Red Bull Sound Select is creating for music fans.
