Tuesday night saw one of the hottest tickets of the year roll through town with the return of the wildly popular Alabama Shakes.

Backed by drums, guitar, keys and bass, singer/guitarist Brittany Howard took complete ownership of the stage at the Pageant and gave the sold-out room every ounce of energy she had. Showcasing her soul-drenched vocals and subtly intricate guitar work, Howard held the spotlight, while her band provided the foundation for her to strut across every inch of the stage. Having quickly shot to international acclaim over the last year with the release of their debut album, "Boys & Girls," the Alabama Shakes proved to be a band whose star will continue to rise.

Nashville rock 'n' rollers Fly Golden Eagle played the middle slot on the bill and wailed from start to finish. With songs filled with spot-on dynamic shifts and a thick low end groove, they won over the audience early on in their set and seemed to only gain momentum until their final note had sounded.

Sitting solo on the stage with his guitar and pockets full of charming stage banter, Riley Downing (not pictured) opened the evening and set the tone for a night of excellent live music.
