On Saturday Dec. 15, Alabama Shakes singer Brittany Howard was robbed by “hoodie-clad” teenagers on the porch of Nashville, Tennessee studio owner and producer Andrija Tokic’s home.

Howard, the powerful-voiced lead of one of 2012’s rising bands, was standing with members of band Clear Plastic Masks, with whom she had just performed as group Thunderbitch. The teenage boys, estimated to be around 15 or 16, approached Howard and company with guns, robbing them of a “few dozen dollars in cash and some cellphones.” No one was injured during the incident.

According to Tokic, the group continued their party, having a few more drinks before attending a show later in the evening.
