thunderbitch alabama shakes

Tuesday night (9/1), Alabama Shakes frontwoman Brittany Howard surprise-released the debut record from her other band, Thunderbitch. Also featuring memebers of Fly Golden Eagle and Clear Plastic Masks, the band's bio reads, "Thunderbitch. Rock 'n' Roll. The end." You can watch a trailer for the album below and listen to the whole album over at Thunderbitch's website.

In other news, the title track to Alabama Shakes' new album Sound & Color was used in the closing sequence of last night's Mr. Robot season finale. That's all we'll say about that, but you can watch the song's video below.

You can still get tickets, by the way, for Alabama Shakes' show at Forest Hills Stadium on September 19 with Drive By Truckers.

Fly Golden Eagle

You may know Nashville's Fly Golden Eagle thanks to their Alabama Shakes associations. They're ATO labelmates and have toured together, the Shakes called their debut one of their favorites of 2012, and FGE members back Shakes singer Brittany Howard in her Thunderbitch side project. The band's latest album was last year's Quartz Bijou, and they've more recently made a video for its track "Tangible Intangible."

Lead singer Ben Trimble directed the video himself and shot it all on his iPhone, and he added lots of trippy visuals that go well with the song's lightly psychedelic vibe. That video premieres below.

The band are also touring, and hitting NYC with Langhorne Slim on July 23 at Brooklyn Bowl. Also on that bill is Traveller. Tickets are on sale now.

All dates are listed, with the new video, below...

tUnE-yArDs at ACL 2014 (more by Tim Griffin)

You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows, but here are some highlights...

Strand of Oaks @ Ace Hotel (5 PM)
Strand of Oaks made the switch from a somber folk singer to an upbeat folk rocker this year and it's boosted his career more than ever before. Last night the band played their biggest NYC show yet at Bowery Ballroom and tonight they hang around for a free one, part of Ace Hotel's 5 at 5 series.

tUnE-YaRds, Cibo Matto, Beep! @ Music Hall of Williamsburg
tUnE-yArDs dove further into their world of quirky, eccentric pop on this year's Nikki Nack, and Cibo Matto returned with their first album since 1999 which had them still in good form. Tonight's night 2 of their 4-night run at MHOW.

The Blow, Zambri, Cookies @ Glasslands
Tonight two bands  (The Blow, Zambri) who've graced Glasslands' stage many times over the years will say goodbye to the venue which closes at the end of the month. It's the first show in a long time for Zambri.

Flatbush Zombies, The Underachievers, Obey City @ Best Buy Theater
This is a killer double bill with two of NYC's finest drug-rap groups, Flatbush Zombies and The Underachievers. It wasn't too long ago you could catch either of those in smaller venues around the city, but tonight's co-headlining gig at the larger Irving Plaza is sold out.

Doomriders, Black Black Black, Humanless, Mammal @ Saint Vitus
Converge bassist Nate Newton's a busy guy these days. That band's touring next year, his band Old Man Gloom recently put out an album, Cavalera Conspiracy recently put out an album he played bass on, and the stoner metal band he fronts, Doomriders, are celebrating their 10th anniversary with a few shows this weekend. They're in NYC tonight.

The Randy Fuller Four, Andy Shernoff, The A-Bones, Daddy Long Legs, Miriam and Nobody's Babies, Bloodshot Bill @ Bell House
Tonitght's the Norton Records Holiday Spectacular, featuring Randy Fuller (brother of Bobby "I Fought the Law" Fuller) and the label's stable of groovy garage bands.

Richard Buckner, Jessi Robertson, Dan Abraham @ Union Hall
Long-running alt-country singer Richard Buckner may not have gotten as big as some of his Merge labelmates (you may remember one of Arcade Fire's earliest NYC shows was with him) or some of the people he's influenced (like Bon Iver), but he's consistently kept it, releasing his tenth album Surrounded last year.

Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings, Antibalas, Charles Bradley and The Menahan Street Band @ Apollo Theater
Tonight's the second of Daptone's three-day holiday extravaganza, the "Super Soul Revue" at the iconic Harlem venue.

Philip Glass (The Etudes) @ BAM
Philip Glass' 20-years-in-the-making project is performed in full tonight with help from nine other pianists, including Nico Muhly and Timo Andres.

The Feelies @ Asbury Lanes
Hoboken indie rock legends, The Feelies opened for Yo La Tengo at Town Hall last night and decided to play another area show while they had their gear out anyway.

Single Mothers, Show Me The Body, Basic Bitches @ Baby's All Right
Single Mothers make angry, attitude filled punk that kicks right into full gear and never lets up on the aggression until they leave the stage. It may finally be getting colder out, but you're most likely leaving this one covered in sweat.

Foo Fighters @ Irving Plaza
Foo Fighters have a new stadium rock record out and their tour next year hits NYC for an actual stadium show at Citi Field. But tonight they're in town for something a tad smaller. You have to line up at the box office like the old days to get tickets. Good luck.

Lemonade, Cut Copy (Tim & Ben), JDH (DJ sets) @ Glasslands
Your chances to dance the night away at Glasslands are running out -- this is a good one, a tag team DJ event featuring members of Cut Copy and Lemonade.

Lagwagon, Swingin' Utters, This Legend @ Gramercy Theatre
Because you just can't escape '90s punk nostalgia, Fat Wreck Chords labelmates Lagwagon and Swingin' Utters both have new albums out this year and they're now celebrating them on a tour together.

Elvis Depressedly, Told Slant, Bellows, Yours Are The Only Ears @ Shea Stadium
Elvis Depressedly first began generating some buzz in the Orchid Tapes DIY scene (Alex G, RIcky Eat Acid, Foxes In Fiction, etc), and he's now made the move to larger label Run for Cover (Tigers Jaw, Pity Sex) who will put out his debut full length next year. The rest of tonight's bill is all in the family -- Told Slant, Bellows and Yours Are The Only Ears come from their own DIY community, a collective known as The Epoch, and frequently collaborate/share members.

Potty Mouth, UNiiQU3, The Guests, LADD @ Barnard College
This mutli-genre bill at Barnard College features indie/punks Potty Mouth, electronic producer UNiiQU3 and more.

The Waldos, Dogmatics, Heap @ Bowery Electric
If you're in the mood for some old school punk tonight, head to Bowery Electric where Walter Lure's band The Waldos plays. Before forming this band, Walter was a member of Johnny Thunders' Heartbreakers.

Alberta Cross, Fly Golden Eagle, The Candles, Invisibleman @ Brooklyn Night Bazaar
Brooklyn Night Bazaar is open with a night of folk rock. It's free to get in and watch the bands, and there's plenty of not-free fun too like arcade games, shopping, good food, drinks and more.

For all of tonight's shows, and tomorrow's, check out our NYC concert calendar.

Stage 48

It took us a minute to fully realize it, but since losing Webster Hall, Bowery Presents has been booking shows at the similarly sized Manhattan venue Stage 48. You may already realize this. You may not care. Regardless, it's happening. Is it temporary? We don't know. Have you been to the venue? What do you think?

Not all Stage 48 shows are Bowery Presents. Kaiju Big Battel and Bomba Estereo are not.

The Horrors, Sleep, and Justin Townes Earle are all Bowery Presents shows though (as are Sir Sly, Wolf Gang, Secret Someones, J. Roddy Walston & The Business, Fly Golden Eagle, EOTO, and Watsky).

We actually have a pair of tickets to give away for the 9/9 Justin Townes Earle show. Want them? Details on how to enter to win below...

Alabama Shakes at Central Park Summerstage in June (more by Chris La Putt)
Alabama Shakes

One of the biggest success stories of 2012 was blues rockers Alabama Shakes, who quickly escalated from selling out relatively small shows to much larger ones in a matter of months. They're already showing up on multiple year-end lists, and are sure to end up on more, but we reached out to them to see what their year-end list is.

Alabama Shakes' Best LPs of 2012 list includes some associates like Fly Golden Eagle, who they took on tour with them, and Jack White, who took the Shakes on tour with him. It also includes another supporter of theirs, Patterson Hood, who also took them on tour, and Deer Tick/Los Lobos side project Diamond Rugs, who they played with at Central Park.

Some other great albums are on there too. You can check out the whole list and a performance and interview video of the band filmed in Chicago. below...

"Hearing every person in Terminal 5 sing every word of Alabama Shakes' "Hold On" is an extremely emotional experience." - J. Edward Keyes

Alabama Shakes

"The reason people talk about them like they descended from the firmament in a golden chariot is because they've emerged at a time that is starved for purist rock and roll. The popular music market consists almost exclusively of glossy, big-budget EDM; the Shakes, on the other hand, sound like they were born during a jam in your living room. Like Jack White (for whom they served as an opening act back in the spring), they are a refreshing reminder that bare-bones rock music used to be a big thing, and can still be a thing if you're persistent enough." [EW]
Alabama Shakes are out on tour, playing huge venues across the country with Nashville's Fly Golden Eagle. That tour came to NYC Thursday night when the band headlined Terminal 5. Missouri's Riley Downing opened the night. Here are some pictures of all of it.

The band are now down in Maryland to play Virgin FreeFest this afternoon (10/6). If you're not there, you can watch the livestream. The tour ends in Austin at the ACL festival, and you won't be there, you can stream their set that day too. On 10/25 the Shakes open for Neil Young & Crazy Horse in their home state of Alabama. On 12/1 they return to Chicago where they last played on 9/11 as part of a free American Family Dream show.

All tour dates, more pictures from Terminal 5, and the band's new video for "I Ain't The Same", below...

Alabama Shakes at Central Park Summerstage in June (more by Chris La Putt)
Alabama Shakes

Alabama Shakes have been having a pretty great year. In only a matter of months, they went from having some out of nowhere success to selling out Bowery and Music Hall to filling a free Central Park show to capacity, and then appearing on Fallon right after. Now they've announced another tour which brings them back to NYC for a headlining show at Terminal 5 on October 4. The tour is being supported by Fly Golden Eagle. A pre-sale begins Wednesday (7/11) at noon and Tickets for the T5 show go on sale to the general public on Friday (7/13) at noon.
