ALABAMA SHAKES
7:30 p.m. Arkansas Music Pavilion, Fayetteville. $39 adv., $42 day of.

If there's a relevant rock band out there right now that shot to the top of the game with a speedier quickness than the Alabama Shakes, I haven't heard of them.

This young outfit had been together for about 15 hot seconds when they were all of a sudden being hailed as the next big thing in retro-inspired rock 'n' roll, heirs to the likes of The Black Keys and The White Stripes. They very quickly went from playing dingy, beloved dive-bars to headlining big festivals and hitting up the late-night stages, including Conan and The Late Show with David Letterman.

The band's 2012 debut album "Boys & Girls" earned mostly positive reviews, with the only consistent criticism being that it didn't quite capture the power of the band's live show. Arkansas fans will now get a chance to see for themselves if that's a legit concern.

Opening the show will be Nashville up-and-comers Fly Golden Eagle.

    You've got to figure that a band from frozen-ass Winnipeg is just gonna be way gnarlier and tougher than a band from some sun-kissed tropical clime where people wear tank tops and flip-flops year-round.
