Alabama Shakes is definitely hitting a stride. Coming off lead singer Brittany Howard shining performance among other at luminaries at the Grammy’s Levon Helm tribute the band then made their Austin City Limits and Saturday Night Live debut. Both of which airing simultaneously last night.
The band performed their rootsy Motown-like single â€œHold Onâ€ and a newer song titled â€œAlways Alrightâ€ (free for download for a limited time) on SNL.
Their ACL setlist included five songs: â€œHold Onâ€, â€œAlways Alrightâ€, â€œYou Ainâ€™t Aloneâ€, â€œI Ainâ€™t the Sameâ€, and â€œOn Your Wayâ€. The episode of ACL also featured a four-song performance by Texas’ blues man Gary Clark, Jr.
