Pop music: Alabama Shakes

The popular blues quartet shrugged off fears of a sophomore slump with April’s “Sound & Color,” still one of the strongest albums of the year. The magnetism of singer Brittany Howard — not to mention that voice — is worth the price of admission. The songs are often just as compelling. 8 p.m. Sept. 18 at Merriweather Post Pavilion, 10475 Little Patuxent Parkway, Columbia. $40-$55. merriweathermusic.com. — WC
