Alabama Shakes

Fillmore Miami Beach

Wednesday, December 4, 2013

Better Than: An abbreviated Kendrick Lamar set, a weird party not thrown by Lady Gaga on North Beach, drinking warm beer in Wynwood.

As the rest of South Beach clamored about to secret parties, cramped galleries, and other Basel diversions, the lavish Fillmore Miami Beach at the Jackie Gleason Theater housed a proper soul revival, courtesy of the Alabama Shakes.

The venue was packed with an unexpectedly large crowd to welcome the Shakes with raised hands and raised voices, and the band made sure its inaugural performance in Miami was one to remember.
