Look down, look down that lonesome road

Went out to see a really great jazz band from New Orleans by the name of Tuba Skinny, the other night. I wore this and as I'm writing I've realised you've seen this dress more than once already. Oh well.

A completely unnecessary shot of me and my concert uke, Suzi Q.


Not the best video because you can't hear Erika sing that well (and there are a lot of somewhat extraneous shots of the rest of the market) but I thought it'd be nice to include a video of them in Adelaide. 

You can listen to all of Tuba Skinny's albums here and buy them at the same link, too. Seriously give them a listen - I'm sure you won't be disappointed, especially if you like old style jazz and blues. I went home early (always the first to go home, alas) so I missed them jamming outside the Festival Centre afterward but I got to see them and they were amazing, anyway. Hope you are all well, dear readers - I'm hoping to get back to blogging regularly once this final essay is out of the way.

Love, 
Andi B. Goode
