Sister Sparrow & the Dirty Birds Bring Soulful Funk to Bowery

March 1st, 2013

Brooklyn’ Sister Sparrow & the Dirty Birds—Arleigh Kincheloe and her big voice backed by “a flock of eight men who masterfully lay down thundering grooves and soaring melodies”—released their first soul-funk-filled album, a self-titled affair, in 2010. And although the LP was received well, it was the group’s high-energy live shows that really got them noticed. A second album, the tight and funky Pound of Dirt (stream it below) came out last year. But, nevertheless, the best way to experience Sister Sparrow & the Dirty Birds (above, performing “Make It Rain”) is live and in person, which you can do tomorrow night at The Bowery Ballroom.
