Today’s featured event:

Hear St. Paul & The Broken Bones at 8 tonight at Bricktown Music Hall, 104 E Flaming Lips Alley. Doors open at 7 p.m.

The Birmingham, Ala.-based soul band is on fire right now. The group’s recently released debut album “Half The City” has sold more than 27,000 records on Single Lock Records, the label co-founded by John Paul White (Civil Wars) and Ben Tanner (Alabama Shakes).

Following an incredible performance (embedded below) on “CBS Saturday,” they jumped to No. 3 on iTunes. They recently made their late-night TV debut on “The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson” and are confirmed for “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” in June.

NPR “First Listen” debuted the album, where they said, “‘Half the City’ is the first major recorded statement from a band already growing into greatness. Get it now, while the sweat’s still fresh.” An NPR “Morning Edition” segment followed. Plus, Rolling Stone named them “Best Soul Revivalists” in the “Best Things” they saw at Austin, Texas’ South By Southwest 2014.
