The Ogden Theatre this week announced spring shows from the Alabama Shakes and Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds.

The Alabama Shakes, fronted by vocal powerhouse Brittany Howard, were a major buzz band for a while. The release of their debut album, Boys & Girls, earned them a solid reputation as a fantastic, soul-and-blues-tinged rock group. The band is coming to the Ogden on March 9. Pre-sale for tickets starts today, and tickets go fully on-sale this Friday for $36.50.

Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds are hitting the road in support of their 15th studio album, Push the Sky Away, which is due out Feb. 19. They'll play the Ogden on April 3, and tickets go on sale Thursday Dec. 6 at 10 a.m. for $45.
