Alabama Shakes will kick off their spring tour on March 9 with a sold-out show at Chicago's Lincoln Hall. On March 13, the band will tape an episode of the legendary PBS program "Austin City Limits," which will air later this year.

NPR Music has tapped Alabama Shakes for its official South By Southwest showcase, which will take place at Stubbs in Austin, TX on March 14, the conference's opening night. It will be available on-air, online and on mobile in a live broadcast on NPR Member stations across the country, and live video stream at http://www.npr.org/music and NPR Music apps.
Boys & Girls, Alabama Shakes' debut album, will premiere on NPR's "First Listen" April 2-10. The album, which ATO Records will release in North America on April 10, will be available at music retailers and at Starbucks.
