Sharon Jones rocks America on extended US tour

Sharon Jones rocks America on extended US tour

Across America, a voice cries out. “Give me jobs,” it says. “Or an end to war. Or improved infrastucture or more civilized politics.” The voice considers. “Oh f*%$ it,” it says, “Just give me a really long Sharon Jones tour of the southern United States and we’ll call it even.”

Alright, USA, here you go. Ms. Jones and band have had a busy 2011 already; they’ve opened for Prince at Madison Square Garden, rocked at his afterparty, and now they’re extending their spring tour to include the South, including a jaunt so Sharon’s hometown, Augusta, Georgia. So, my fellow Americans, bring me your tired, your poor, your teaming masses yearning to GET DOWN, and let’s get this tour started.
