As a precursor to this weekend’s Title Town Soul & Funk Party at the Shadow Lounge, our special guest DJ, The Honeydripper (Daptone Records) has been kind enough to give us a SIGNED VINYL COPY of Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings latest album, “I Learned the Hard Way,” available now on Daptone Records! Pitchfork writes, “This record hardly needs to be recommended to soul fans, but even if revisitations of older music styles aren't usually your thing, I Learned the Hard Way is worth digging up.” New York Magazine writes,”I Learned the Hard Way is a painstaking homage to the chitlin-circuit soul of the sixties and seventies.” To enter just RSVP “attending” at the Title Town Facebook event here: http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=140464076005800 One winner will be chosen at random from the confirmed guests and announced on Saturday, November 27th at the Shadow Lounge in East Liberty. Winner must be present to win.

Daptone Records, NYC) Shadow Lounge 5972 Baum Blvd. (E. Liberty) 9 PM-2 AM, 18+ w/ ID, $5 Get it together Pittsburgh: THIS IS THE LAST TITLE TOWN OF THE YEAR! In 2010, we had a pretty good run at steamin’ up the Shadow Lounge and delivering all-around sweaty good times, but more importantly - bringin’ you a blistering line-up of some of the deepest and most diverse funk & soul DJs around. On Saturday, November 27, shake off those holidays blues and prepare to work off calories you haven’t even eaten yet when Title Town welcomes Brooklyn’s own Ms. Nydia Davila aka THE HONEYDRIPPER! Lost & Found NYC writes: “Sharon Jones may be the First Lady of Daptone Records – the Bushwick-based homebase for the finest in purist 21st Century soul. But Daptone’s First Lady behind the scenes is undoubtedly its longtime label manager, Ms. Nydia Davila, also known by her DJ-ing alias, The Honeydripper. Occasional tour DJ for the Budos Band and other Daptone roster acts, The Honeydripper is also one of the residents holding down BK’s best kept secret – “The Lost & the Found” nights at Savalas – where the soul ballads are as sublime as the drinks are stiff.” This month she makes her Title Town debut on the wheels, bringin’ an all-vinyl box of foot-friendly funk & soul guaranteed to keep your head nodding and your booty on the dance-floor. Support the real. Don't miss this party. Big ups to all of our guest DJs this year: Brad Hales (People’s Records, Detroit), Robert Wells (Ann Arbor Soul Club), Kevin Coombe (Moneytown, DC), David Griffiths (Bumpshop, NYC), Jared “JBX” Boxx (Big City Records, Bumpshop, NYC), Mr. Finewine (Downtown Soulville, NYC), Justin Hopper (Soulcialism, PGH), Drama J (Pgh) and Chairman Mao (Bumpshop, NYC).TITLE TOWN Soul & Funk Party SATURDAY, November 27 w/ special guest THE HONEYDRIPPER (
