Sharon Jones @ The Apollo

Saturday night was a big night for music in NYC. A few lucky people got to see Sigur Ros play a few songs, Arcade Fire headlined their biggest NYC show at (what must be) the biggest venue in NYC – their ninth NYC show this year (where they covered the Violent Femmes), and Miss Sharon Jones and her Dap Kings brought the soul back home to the legendary Apollo Theater.

“…Last night, sitting at the Apollo, I realized something. Nobody makes music like this anymore. Nobody entertains like this anymore. Nobody except Daptone. For 12 years they have been doing things their way, working hard and paying dues. Now they finally did it their way, at the Apollo Theater.” [Flea Market Funk]
