They’re the quintessential 21st century rock & roll psychedelic band, fusing decades of rock history into exploratory jams and anthems, while peppering every set with excellent covers (the Stones’ “Waiting On a Friend,” Velvet Underground’s “Oh, Sweet Nuthin'”), and covers of covers (the Band’s version of Marvin Gaye’s “Don’t Do It”). “They’re amazing,” says Brittany Howard. “Every song could be their big, set-closing song. Just an epic band.”

Showstopper: The ominous sludge of frontman Jim James’ strumless guitar intro to “Victory Dance.”
