Alabama Shakes Front Woman Robbed at Gunpoint


In a gun related incident, Grammy nominated Alabama Shakes front woman Brittany Howard was robbed at gunpoint in Nashville, Tennessee this past Saturday night after a show with her side project Thunderbitch. Thankfully, no one was injured, and the assailants, described by witnesses as about 15 or 16 years of age, got away with nothing more than a few dozen dollars in cash and some cell phones. According to The Nashville Scene, "Howard was sitting on the front porch of a home owned by a local producer — along with with members of Thunderbitch and Nashville rock act Clear Plastic Masks — when they were approached by two "skinny little" teenage males wearing hoodies, who drew guns and demanded money."

Howard and her crew handled the robbery quite fine and "blew off the tension of being mugged" by comsuming some drinks at the Whigs show later that night.

In positive news for the group, the Alabama Shakes received three Grammy nominations including Best New Artist and Best Rock Performance for their hit, "Hold On". Another nomination was awarded for the bands 2012 album "Boys & Girls" for Best Recording Package for art direction by Brett Kilroe.
