The Powerstation will be bouncing to the sensational sound of ALABAMA SHAKES, a band that has kicked soul music back into the future with an electrifying live reputation.
The Athens, Alabama quartet are fronted by Brittany Howard, barely 22 years old and already anointed the Next Big Thing for her throaty blues howl that according to critics is “no exaggeration, smack between Janis Joplin's and Jack White's…"
Their debut album Boys & Girls has been called one of the albums of 2012 by critics everywhere. From the heart-rending title song to such stomps as ‘Rise to the Sun’, the album demonstrates the sense of groove and space the band learned from their idols, along with a blistering force and emotion that simply can’t be learned. Auckland gets its first chance to taste that feeling in January 2012.
Don’t make the mistake of missing out.
