Kings Go Forth @ Mercury Lounge
MErcury Lounge

"Dig Deeper is a monthly 60's Soul Party in Park Slope, Brooklyn at Southpaw. Hosted by Mr. Robinson and DJ Honky, generally on the fourth Saturday of the month, with the dancefloor primed with the finest funk and soul records anywhere in the world from their collections and a live performance each month at midnight from a legendary soul / funk artist that we particularly treasure. Past artists have included Don Gardner, Tami Lynn, Obie "Young" Jessie, Dean Parrish, Harvey Scales, Eula Cooper, the Mighty Hannibal, Garland Green, Delia "Dee Dee" Gartrell, Lee Fields, Renaldo Domino, Lenis Guess, Marva Whitney, the Green Berets, Darrow Fletcher, Billy Prince of the Precisions, and at the Brooklyn Soul Festival that we put on with Eli "Paperboy" Reed, Hermon Hitson, Roscoe Robinson, Barbara Lynn, Maxine Brown, and Otis Clay.

When Michael and I started Dig Deeper two years ago, it was with a goal of booking our soul heroes of the 1960s and 1970s, artists who haven't performed in town in 20-40 years - an endeavor we took on because nobody else was doing it. So why exactly are we breaking rank and bringing a contemporary band from Milwaukee to town for our April 24 show?

We've been friends with Andy Noble for a good while, a fellow soul and funk record obsessive whose knowledge about the genre would fill volumes. We remember when he mentioned that he was starting a soul group and were intrigued. Then we remember when he shared a recording of what would be the first Kings Go Forth single (released on 45rpm vinyl, naturally), and were blown away." [Dig Deeper]

Kings Go Forth just released an album on Luaka Bop, and they're currently on tour to promote that record and will appear at Dig Deeper this soulful Saturday evening at Southpaw in Brooklyn (4/24).

You might have caught the band when they recently played DC (if not you can stream that whole show now), earlier today at their Vintage Vinyl in-store, or the other night at Mercury Lounge where they shared a bill with Rafter. More pictures from that Mercury Lounge show, and all tour dates (with tonight's flyer), below...
