Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings
Since their last Houston show almost four years ago, Sharon Jones and her Dap-Kings have had local fans asking, "How long do we have to wait?" The Brooklyn-based, Augusta, Georgia-born super soul sister known for funky ditties such as "How Long Do I Have to Wait?" and "Got a Thing on Mind" is back behind her and the boys' latest effort, last fall's 100 Days, 100 Nights, another collection of thoughtfully crafted tunes for fans of early '60s and '70s soul. In addition to the album, both Jones and the Dap-Kings have been up to plenty. The men backed Jones's younger, crazier counterpart, Amy Winehouse, on her best-selling Back to Black and joined her on tour, while Jones turned down supporting Lou Reed's 2007 tour behind his Berlin album for some big-screen time in Denzel Washington's latest flick, The Great Debaters. (Jones has a minor role as a juke-joint singer named Lila.) This weekend, those who missed out last time can see what all the fuss is about, and veterans can, as Jones sings, "fall in love all over again."
