This Friday UK's The Heavy will be in Chicago at the Vic Theater, opening for the incredible classic soul of Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings. Although their new record The House That Dirt Built came out late last year, The Heavy are certainly gaining momentum with their track "How You Like Me Now" track featured on the Kia commercial you see every 10 minutes. Certainly a good one.

Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings followed up their awesome 100 Days, 100 Nights record with a I Learned the Hard Way which came out last month. All their records need to be checked out. It is still curious how Amy Winehouse (with the same backing band) gets the commercial success she had while Sharon Jones remains a mainstream unknown. Jones has so much more talent and style.
If I am in Chicago this is a concert I would not want to miss.
