Some quick sketches that have been piling up: Last September I went to Brooklyn to see Doug Skinner perform: [caption id="attachment_2203" align="aligncenter" width="348"]Doug Skinner at Jalopy, Brooklyn.

Unfortunately I couldn't catch the name of their bassist. [caption id="attachment_2204" align="alignleft" width="490"]The Ladies Auxiliary Ukulele Orchestra, 08.24.14.
