So after 16 hours of driving in two days (plus an additional 3 hours on each end for Storm), we’re in full recovery mode now. Big big thanks for all the folks in Massena (especially Blind Andy and everyone at 101.5 The Fox) for packing the Lookout with a band of Seaway Valley crazies—visions of Herb the Dancing Machine shall haunt our dreams for years, we’re sure. (Anybody get a picture of that? We’d love to see it) And congrats to local boy Zach Bogosian for being the 3rd overall pick in the NHL draft, going to Atlanta.
And then, of course, the Highline Ballroom show was…well, what can one say except "The Kristen Shirts Ukulele Army?" Another full house, and we think we’ve found our new home in NYC for a while. Videos are popping up on the YouTubes already (find some links here), though they can’t quite capture the majesty of seven ukulelists on one stage.
Bonus: on the drive on Saturday, Paul found this, easily the greatest $6 sculpture ever, at a local drug store (see left).
