Alabama Shakes' postponed show is tonight at the Uptown

Garage-soul quartet Alabama Shakes was one of the most buzzed-about bands of 2012, and 2013 is looking like the year it conquers America. The Athens, Alabama, group slides seamlessly among country, roots and rock, and is led by Brittany Howard, who channels Janis Joplin's bluesy howl - but don't tell her that. "I've grown tired of the Janis Joplin comparisons," Howard tells The Pitch. "I don't really know her music very well. This is the only way I know how to sound, really." Opener Michael Kiwanuka also looks to be on his way up, and his Bill Withers - by - way - of - Bon Iver songs are pretty hard not to like.

Monday, March 11, at the Uptown Theater (rescheduled from original Sunday date)
