November 14, 2012, 1:55 pm -- /EPR NETWORK/ -- One of this year's most talked-about acts come to London in mid-November as part of an extensive European tour which also takes in other legendary rock venues such as La Cigale in Paris and the Glasgow Barrowlands.
Alabama Shakes, a blues-rock four-piece fronted by the throaty, full-voiced former postwoman Brittany Howard, combines horns and jazz sensibilities with classic rock patterns and instruments.
