Video Set: Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings in Austin

We don’t know if funky soul is technically back in vogue, but if it isn’t then, the Queen of Soul Sharon Jones is bringing it back. This former prison security guard never lost her groove, even though she was ignored for most of the ’80s. Back in the late ’90s and winning converts with every hair-standing-on-end performance, she continues her climb at this South by Southwest Showcase at Emo’s Annex.
Sharon Jones’ “This Land Was Made For You and Me” Sharon Jones’ “He Treated me Wrong” Sharon Jones’ “I’m about to jump out of my clothes!”
