Alabama Shakes Singer Brittany Howard Robbed at Gunpoint in Nashville
The incident happened on Saturday night (December 15) in Nashville, on the front porch of Bomb Shelter producer Andrija Tokic's home. According to Nashville Scene [via Spinner], Howard was hanging out with members of local rock band Clear Plastic Masks when two hoodie-wearing teenage boys, approximately 15 or 16, approached them with guns drawn. The thieves got away with cellphones and a small amount of cash, but luckily no one was hurt.
The incident happened following a show from Howard's new project Thunderbitch, which features members of Clear Plastic Masks.
Don't expect this new side-project to distract Howard from her duties with Alabama Shakes, since the group already have a busy international schedule for 2013. Unfortunately, there aren't any Canadian dates yet. See the itinerary here.
