Alambama Shakes @ Central Park Summerstage
Alabama Shakes, who opened for Jack White at Roseland in May and have since played Bonnaroo, headlined a "sold out" free show at Central Park Summerstage in NYC this afternoon, Sunday, June 24th. Did you make it in. If not, did you listen from outside? Here are some pictures from the show.
Already packed when opener Robert Ellis went on around 3pm, the show also included a pre-shakes set by Diamond Rugs who headlined their own show (their first-ever in NYC) at the Bell House in Brooklyn on Friday night (and who play Letterman on Monday). As you may know by now, Diamond Rugs features members of Deer Tick, Dead Confederate, and Steve Berlin from Los Lobos.
