Poor Sharon Jones & the Dap Kings. As you can see above, they spent their weekend in airports instead of enjoying sunny Florida where another, less high profile, festival happened this Coachella weekend. It’s called Wanee, and it was affected by the volcano too. The NY group was overseas because they just played a show in London…

“Wednesday’s show was essentially a nonstop soul and funk party, complete with trumpet, tenor sax and baritone sax, drums and percussion, electric bass, and two guitars. The horn section delivered melodic and rhythmic blasts that had the volume and punch of six horns, not just three. Quick, shuffling break beats and short, percussive guitar parts on top of melodic bass lines provided a backdrop that Jones wailed on top of.” [Telegraph]

Back home Daptone was still representing. As advertised, the Budos Band played a Record Store Day in-store at Generation Records on Saturday, and a show at Southpaw in Brooklyn the night before that. Pictures from the latter are below.

If you missed both Budos shows, there’s always June 5th in NJ with Les, or the just-added June 11th show aboard a Rocks Off boat. Tickets for that one are now on sale.

The Dap Kings helped deal with their boredom by recording and posting a video to YouTube. Check it out, with the Southpaw pictures, below…
