After an opening set by the Ivan Milev Band (I missed them, but Kyle didn't), Sharon Jones & the Dap Kings tore the roof off of Brooklyn Bowl on Wednesday night (12/30) (the night before New Years Eve when they played the 9:30 Club in DC). Crowd participation was at an all time high with various men joining Sharon on stage throughout the show and a stage full of women for one song. MC and guitarist Binky Griptite was absent that night. And though missed, the other eight members of the band did a fine job holding things down with him gone. After one encore, the sold out show ended around midnight (enough time for me to run to Europa and still catch Coalesce, though I was tempted to just stick around and bowl).

Last night I went and saw Jason Reitman's movie Up in the Air (good movie) and was pleasantly surprised to hear Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings again. Their version of "This Land is Your Land" (most, if not all of it) plays during the movie's opening credits. It's also the first song on the soundtrack CD.

wish she would bitch-slap those hipsters back to the midwest...

Right now, I am so ashamed to be white.

You should have way more reason to be ashamed of being white than the fact that those hipsters have no rhythm

Sharon looks BEYOND fierce in these pics.

how many people does it hold?

Posted by Anonymous | January 2, 2010 3:43 PM

probably the most fun I've had at a show all year.

"wish she would bitch-slap those hipsters back to the midwest..."

i guess there would be no one at her show then b/c from the pics it looks like it's all white people.

Posted by Anonymous | January 2, 2010 5:48 PM

:) You're right.. :) all white people in the show...

Posted by beats | January 2, 2010 5:53 PM

All white people are not hipsters. Ugh, so annoying.

People get it right for once. The epitome of a hipster is a trust fund east coast kid not from NYC who dresses poor, has probably never worked much in their life and takes frequent trips overseas.

Daptones isn't about being a hipster or being a yuppie. It's not about being black or white. It's about GREAT MUSIC. This is band is so SICK.

Jesus...are there ANY black people in Brooklyn anymore? Last year I visited and white hipster-types are totally taking over BK. I mean of course it's not like they're only there or anything, but the majority definitely is. I have no problem with hipsters, but these type of people definitely fall in that "I am a liberal, artsy East coast type...yet all my friends are white!! YAY!"

Sharon Jones And The Dap Kings came up in the festie scene which none of you know about because you are all in fact HIPSTERS get over it. it's about the music. It's not too late to get out of your head for a minute and have a wider ear.

We're going to be talking about Daptone for years to come. The music reminds me to use my time wisely and remain passionate about what I do and try to find ways to benefit other people too. If you liked the show, buy a record or two and tell someone else who cares about quality.

nobody should look at these pictures and be ashamed of anything.

anyone commenting on brooklynvegan is a hipster to anyone else who isn't posting on here. so don't pretend like you just stumbled in here.

and sharon jones is a fantastic, genuine talent and her music is great. anyone can enjoy it and hopefully, they all will.

Hi Webmaster at brooklynvegan.com

Your web pages are not looking well I think there is an alignment issue. The body of the page is moving to the right. Kindly check it with your designing team.

Could someone explain to me why it matters what the racial breakdown of the audience is?

niceee black woman

Oh, and what about those question marks on Sunday's text in the concert poster below? No, that isn't saving a spot for a Smiths reunion or U2 debut on the Coachella stage, it's the way that Yorke presents himself as a solo star, the marquee at his Orpheum concert had the same punctuational flourish.

Different students have skills to accomplish a smashing information referring to this good post but a lot of them are pressured for time for that work. Thus, every dissertation service will be able to support students with the finance thesis creating. And in fact, it would economize free time.
