Loved her stuff, and the records are awesome recordings in the "shitty is pretty" stylee.

Stupid 2016. She was way too young to go.

Saw her in 2006 at Kings in Raleigh when they didn't have AC which 0% impinged on the Dap Kings performance. She gave me a hug afterwards when I thanked her for the performance. Such energy. Such a talent. She will be missed.

There's a video of her playing in Paris. It is billed as Prince playing a cameo with the Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings. He actually only plays for a minute or so, but SJ totally steals the show.
