Giveaway: Alabama Shakes, Sept. 6 at Arkansas Music Pavilion

Alabama Shakes


One of the most highly anticipated shows of the fall in Fayetteville is coming up in less than a month.

Soulful southern rock band Alabama Shakes are coming to the Arkansas Music Pavilion for a show on Friday, Sept. 6.

For those not familiar, the band has experienced one of the fastest rises to rock stardom in recent memory, blowing up seemingly overnight even before the release of their stellar debut full-length album, Boys & Girls.

Since the record came out in April 2012, however, the band has absolutely exploded. Instead of performing for hundreds in the watering holes of hometown Athens, Ala., the band now plays for crowds of thousands at venues like Red Rocks. And instead of delivering mail at the local post office, charismatic singer Brittany Howard is belting out “The Weight” during a Levon Helm tribute at the Grammy’s with the likes Elton John, Mavis Staples and T-Bone Burnett.

We expect another packed house for their performance at the AMP next month, and we happen to have four pairs of tickets to give away to the show. Try to win ’em.

How to enter

These next few months are some of the finest of the year to be alive in Fayetteville, Arkansas. There’s the Fayetteville Roots Festival, Razorback Football, cooler weather, outdoor music, the buzz and excitement in the air that comes every year with a new semester at the UA, and that’s not even half of it.
