Sharon Jones @ Beacon Theatre, 2/6/2014
Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings

"Since I don't have hair, I'm gonna shake my head!" The only notable difference between the Jones we knew before Give The People What They Want and the Jones we know now is that she's no longer sporting braids. Before catapulting into a one-woman dance marathon that covered everything from The Jerk to The Twist to James Brown's Camel Walk, Jones headbanged without hair while cracking jokes at her own expense. (And who said you need hair to headbang, anyway? It's not "hairbanging.") - [Village Voice]
Now cancer-free and with a terrific new album out, Sharon Jones had some celebrating to do with The Dap-Kings at Beacon Theatre last week (2/6), putting on a jubilous show with no signs of being worse for wear. Pictures from her set, including ones of opener Valerie June, are in this post. Sharon we're glad you're back and feeling great.

It's a good thing too, as Jones & the Dap-Kings will be basically touring nonstop from now till May. All tour dates are listed below. Sharon will also be doing an "iTunes Q&A" which happens on Twitter (that's right) on Wednesday (2/12) at 3 PM EST -- hashtag #AskSharon. She also did an iTunes guest DJ session which you can listen to here.
