Alabama Shakes

[ROOTS] FRIDAY, JULY 19

You always say the good bands never get their due, but sometimes the good get through. Alabama Shakes worked its way to huge music festivals and the Grammys one gig and one release at a time, each new listener dropping his jaw at the seamless merging of soul and Americana within the fall-into-place instrumentation, the timeless and alluring songwriting, and the goose-pimpling wails of singer/guitarist Brittany Howard. You also say bands like this don’t come to Las Vegas. But they do, and will. This is not a night for Netflix. With Fly Golden Eagle, Hurray for the Riff Raff. 8 p.m.; The Pearl at The Palms, www.palms.com, $45.
