This Week’s NYC Lineup Includes Alabama Shakes at Bowery Ballroom and Music Hall of Williamsburg, Lost in the Trees at le poisson rouge

Alabama Shakes Perform at Bowery Ballroom, Music Hall of Williamsburg
Alabama Shakes Perform at Bowery Ballroom and Music Hall of Williamsburg this week.

They’re arguably be the “it” band of the moment … and their moment is sure to last for some time to come. Alabama Shakes’ ‘Boys and Girls’ is an album made for a live show, and I can’t wait to see what they do in person. They’ll play back-to-back, sold-out shows this week at Bowery Ballroom and Music Hall of Williamsburg — be on the lookout for a last-minute release of tickets, and while we would never want to say, “support the scalpers!” … this show might be worth a trip to Just sayin’. Below is a live version of the group performing the title (as well as one of my favorite) track at a live session for last month. Also, NPR still has their First Listen posted — check it out, and order your copy!

Not to go without special mention, Lost in the Trees – another one of the bands responsible for one of my favorite albums of the year thus far – will play le poisson rouge on Wednesday. This show is not sold out … yet. So don’t think, just buy.
