With less than a week before the Grammy Awards, where Austin’s Black Pumas are a long shot pick for Best New Artist, the rock ’n’ soul sensation has sold out a third show at Stubb’s amphitheater in May.

The band has added a fourth Stubb’s show on May 11, a longer run than we’ve ever seen at the Red River music venue. Tickets are on sale now.

The band has been making the talk show rounds over the last few weeks, with an appearance on the “Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon” last week and a stop by “Ellen” on Monday.
