Hotline: the Heavy @ House of Blues 5/27

Hotline says HOW YOU LIKE ME NOW: You know that cowbell-banging soul jam that sounds like a lost James Brown record and is played in the Kia Sorento commercial where the sock monkey gets a tattoo? Yeah, it rules, and it's called "How You Like Me Now" by UK band the Heavy. Hotline is sure the Heavy had to cancel some US dates late last year (memory is all fuzzy), but they're back in town this spring supporting Sharon Jones & the Dap Kings. The tour hits the House of Blues on Thursday, May 27.

Hell of a show. Details below after the video jump.

The Heavy's US Tour With Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings Kicks Off Today

The Heavy are back in the USA for tour dates spanning May, June and July for their longest North American tour to date. They will be supporting Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings, headlining some of their own shows - a second show in both Denver and NY have been added due to high demand, and performing at Festivals such as Sasquatch, Jazz Fests in Victoria/Vancouver and more.
