#1Alabama Shakes

What: Continuing support for 2015's sophomore album Sound & Color

When: April 21– August 12

Alabama Shakes will toast a stellar year, which included a No. 1 album debut and an Album of the year GRAMMY nod, by bringing their blues-rock to a host of large venues and festivals. Nashville’s Ascend Amphitheater will kick things off on Apr. 21, and from there Brittany Howard & Co. will head to Hangout Fest, Sasquatch! and Forecastle, among others. —Jason Lipshutz
