There was a bit of a mix-up with our tickets at will-call, but after that the evening was stellar. The opening band was The Heavy, known by me for their song How You Like Me Now from the Kia Sorento commercials. I liked them. They seem to be part of the resurgence of Reggae and Ska that I've been hearing about. Then the Dap-Kings came out and played a little intro to announce the entrance of Sharon Jones. The whole show was one big, powerful, energized, sweat inducing, funk-soul revue. I imagine this is what the Motown Revues back in the 60's were like.
Here's some sketches (based on photos from the web as the few I took with my phone were lacking):
