A re-up for the video to If You Call which we posted a couple of weeks back. Excitement is building locally (Manchester) for the return of SHARON JONES & THE DAP KINGS, who first hit us when Irfan Rainy brought them over a few years ago, then again when FRIENDS & FAMILY stuck them in the basements of the Roadhouse and the Mint Lounge respectively. It was only a matter of time before bigger venues beckoned, and this time Billboard success across the pond means The Ritz plays host to the vintage-dedicated crew.

Full UK dates are:
Wednesday 3 November – Roundhouse, London
Thursday 4 November – The Ritz, Manchester
Friday 5 November – Queens Hall, Edinburgh
Saturday 6 November – Tripod, Dublin

The new 45, released this week, can be ordered from Daptone here…
