Brittany Howard of Alabama Shakes @ Austin City Limits. March 13, 2012

SXSW is going full blast in Austin right now; Spring has sprung. The best new thing I’ve seen is Alabama Shakes, and this woman is a Force of Nature…the last time I’ve seen a woman singer this powerful is when I first saw Aretha Franklin. Brittany Howard. Remember that name… Oh, and Alabama Shakes is a very tight and tasty band.
