Sharon Jones

Sharon Jones & the Dap Kings have a bunch of shows and festival appearances scheduled this summer and they've just announced that they'll be playing Williamsburg Park on August 18 with openers Antibalas. That show falls directly in between the Jane's Addiction (Aug 17) and My Morning Jacket (Aug 19) shows at Williamsburg Park. No word on an on sale yet but keep an eye on Ticketmaster. UPDATE: It's a free show, folks!

In other news, openers Antibalas, who have been busy for the last few years with the Fela! musical, are set to release their first album since 2007. The self-titled LP is due out August 7 on Daptone Records.

Free show makes much more sense. No way they could fill that venue with paying customers. That act seems bookable in nyc for 2 things - free summer concerts and new years eve.

"4:01---Man, shut the hell up."

You shut up you fucking idiot, the guy actually spoke the truth. No way is Sharon Jones selling even close to 7000 tickets.

As a free show however, it will be jammed.

YTINAS.NIL: balls deep. He will save.

As a free show on a Saturday night, it'll be unbearably jammed.

unhandleable free show!

1:40- As the people here are probably not promoters, who gives a fuck?

Sharon Jones will put on a kickass show. That's what matters here, folks. If you have never seen her, what are you waiting for?

Hey Brooklyn Vegan, I hear doors are at 5pm. Do you know what time the sets start?
