Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings drew a huge crowd at the Cat’s Cradle in Carrboro Friday night. Her retro-soul revue got everybody moving with hits’ like “A Little Something,” “How Do You Let A Good Man Down,” and my favorite “Pick It Up, Lay It In The Cut.”
The Dap Kings opened for her and I was happy to hear they are coming out with their own record in the Fall.
Lot’s of info about Sharon Jones, The Dap Kings, The Budos Band and many other old school funk sounds at the Dap Tones Records web site.
You can listen to the last number in her regular set, which happened to be “Lay It In The Cut,” and the encore numbers here. Some of the pictures from last night are shown below. The full picture set is available online here.
