Check out this great clip of Alabama Shakes soundchecking "Rise To the Sun" before their show at Rodeo Austin earlier this month. Remember that the Shakes performed at the White House recently with Justin Timberlake and Booker T. to celebrate the long fantastic history of Memphis Soul and Rhythm and Blues. Check your local PBS station for details. While you're waiting for PBS to post a clip you can check out the quartet's performance of "Always Alright" from Saturday Night Live earlier this year with Heath Fogg on his Epiphone Sheraton II
, his #1 axe on tour over the past year. The word is out that the band is hard at work on a new album for later this year. We can't wait.
