Alabama Shakes with special guest Chicano Batman at Santa Barbara Bowl 08/14

If you missed Alabama Shakes at Coachella this year, or aren't making it up the coast to the Outside Lands in August, have no fear Santa Barbara! On Friday August 14th, Alabama Shakes will be making their Santa Barbara debut at the beloved Santa Barbara Bowl with Chicano Batman opening the show. They're currently on tour in support of their sophomore album Sound & Color (released via ATO Records), which is the follow-up to their 2012 debut Boys & Girls (currently certified GOLD.)  
The procedure of pressing Sound & Color onto vinyl wasn't , and instead it underwent a unique method that involved comprising lead singer/guitarist Brittany Howard. As an avid vinyl collector, I highly recommend that you watch what took place behind the making of this record as Howard documented it herself. You can clearly grasp how important this procedure was to the band, which makes it quite heartwarming to say the least.    
Fun Fact: Sound & Color debuted at No. 1 on The Billboard 200, selling 97,000 units in the first week of release. (Grab it either on iTunes or Amazon for vinyl/cd/mp3/etc.) Don't forget, you can always pick it up at your local record store!
