Sharon Jones & the Dap Kings at Williamsburg Park - 8/18/12 (via Naja Rosa Koppel)
Sharon Jones

Sharon Jones & the Dap Kings and their Daptone labelmates Antibalas shared a bill for a free show at Williamsburg Park last night (8/18). Antibalas were celebrating their new self-titled album, which came out earlier this month via Daptone. They were followed by a great set by Sharon Jones and her band that left people wanting more, and included a cover of "I Heard It Through the Grapevine," like Sharon's sets have in the past. A video of them playing "Longer and Stronger" at last night's show is below.

This summer's Williamsburg Park shows continue TONIGHT (8/19) with another great double bill of My Morning Jacket and Shabazz Palaces. Tickets for tonight's show are still available. MMJ will return to the NYC area for three shows at Port Chester's Capitol Theatre in December.

Great band, I wish I could had seen them earlier. It's sad that they had to play at such a shitty venue.
