Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings_2010_09_26 (Phoenix, AZ – The Orpheum Theater)

I had to choose between seeing Dungen or Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings. They were in the same week, it seemed like too much money, too much hassle, etc. I chose to see Dungen, which turned out to be a great show. Then the opportunity to sit in the 3rd row at Sharon Jones popped up. So I went. Now I can say that I’ll never, ever, EVER, even think about skipping out on seeing SJDK!

If you’re like me you’ve thought a lot about how cool it would’ve been to be at a certain concert in the past. James Brown at the Apollo, Black Sabbath at the California Jam Festival, The Doors at the Felt Forum, Darkthrone in Helsinki, etc, etc… Seeing Miss Jones the other night made me feel like I was at a legendary, historic concert. It’s not a common thing to feel at concerts. A lot of which are ‘just another town’ for the band playing the ‘same old songs’. But none of that was in the air for the 2 HOURS they were on stage. It was definitely one of my concert highlights of the year.
