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.
