I went to a show last night with deepcomputerblue. I'll let him expound on the show, as it was more his bag, tho I definitely enjoyed it.
However, hanging out in the bar at the Troubadour we got to talking about ukulele music and he brought up this gal, Julia Nunes.
Thoroughly entertaining, I now want to see her show on Wednesday at the Echo.
That got me to thinking of my favorite ukulele ingenue, Zee Avi. I wanted to see if she has any shows in LA soon, as I missed the last couple times she was here. Sure enough, she's got the show with Jack Johnson at the Hollywood Bowl in October. It's pretty much sold out, and now I remember it going on sale in March. Such a long time between the on-sale and the show. But that's a whole other rant.
Back to Zee Avi. She, too, started out by posting YouTube videos. Now they're using her music in Oliver Peoples eyeglass campaigns with Shirley Manson and Elijah Wood.
