Easy playing tonight at 5pm Britomart. Sharon Jones this sat!

EASY are doing a show tonight down at what I'd call a temporary bar - they are calling it an "al fresco arts and music garden". First set at 5pm, second set at 7:30pm, free entry.

Then I triple booked myself somehow and got 2 gigs in one day, plus I'm gonna try checkout soul legend Sharon Jones in between the two gigs. Lets talk about Sharon for a bit. She is one of the wickest black soul singers of the past 20 years. They rocked it super hard down at WOMAD back in 2009, and its a pity this pic doesn't quite have a shot of the drummer, but checkout the bassplayer he looks classic. Sharon too is looking mean as. Anyhow, looking forward to seeing that.

I've popped some good upcoming shows into the gig list: Mos Def and Aloe Blacc in Jan, Splore City, and then in April: The Funky Meters (yes some of the founding members of The Meters are coming to do a show).
