Alabama Shakes at SB Bowl

Alabama Shakes has their own, special kind of blues. Lead singer, Brittany Howard, is about as unique as it gets. She's young, confident and talented and can belt out a hell of a bluesy scream, while jamming away on her six string. It was a pleasure shooting them and the opening act, Chicano Batman. Batman has coopted blues and given it a funky twist. I really enjoyed shooting, watching and listening to them both. 

Shooting was in the photo pit, restricted to the first three songs. Lighting was good, utlizing warm yellows against a bright blue backdrop. See the whole gallery on sbbowl.com/photos.
