The Dap-Kings @ Stinkweeds
If you're familiar with the superb discography of Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings, it goes without saying that the nine talented musicians backing up the golden-voiced songstress are vastly steeped in the realms of R&B, soul, and funk. Depending on whom you ask, possessing immense knowledge of various genres is an important trait shared by some of the better DJs around. This weekend, members of the Dap-Kings will show off said expertise at Stinkweeds Record Exchange, 12 West Camelback Road, during a special DJ session on Friday, March 21. According to the shop's staff, the musicians will spend a few hours prior to their big gig at Heritage Square (see page 55 for more) hanging out and spinning up "amazing stuff" from the Daptone Label, as well as any gems they dig up at the store and maybe even some Afro-beat. Stinkweeds' owner Kimber Lanning says she feels honored that the band chose the store for the session. "Guess they're doing this all over the country and we are feeling lucky they picked us," she says. The music starts at 6 p.m. Admission is free.
