I'm very proud of the Alabama Shakes. SUCH a good live band (I hated the production on their debut album; they should have just put out a live album). They were just a band that regularly played my neighborhood bar in Tuscaloosa just as recently as October of 2010. I've seen them play live probably in excess of 20 times.
They blew up because of NPR's chief music critic, Ann Powers, who lives in Tuscaloosa (her husband is a music/American studies professor at UA), as well as landing a song on a Zales diamond commercial. Obviously, I don't get to see them play nearly as much since they're touring the whole damn earth at this point.
