Uke Boogie! Local music, without guitars.

Rah Hell at Uke Boogie June 8 2017 by Suzanne ForbesI went to the Uke Boogie for the first time!

Here is host Rah Hell, playing an obscure Amanda Palmer song on her amazing ukulele that has travelled all over the world with her and has more stickers than the bathroom at Urban Spree! You can see another drawing of her performing in Donut Heart here.

This is Luke Smoke, who sang songs I could not understand, but certainly enjoyed.

Later he put on a huge red wig but sadly I did not draw that.

Out of nowhere, Joe from Chicago, who used to live around the corner from Lagari where the Boogie is, appeared.

Chicago Joe at Uke Boogie June 8 2017 by Suzanne ForbesHe is a mad fucking talent on the piano, a fantastic fucking entertainer, and being a Chicago guy he fucking swears like me, a fucking New Yorker. You can see us all freak out on this video Rah took.

There were many other performers, and I wish I could have drawn them all.accordian at uke boogie june 8 2017 by Suzanne Forbes

Not to mention the lovely audience, which included Suzanne Wegh of Curated by Girls, so I did another SuzanneXSuzanne drawing!

Cannot wait til the next lovely music event in Berlin. It’s cheap (or free!) and easy to see music here and so accessible and chill. Berlin, du bist so wunderbar.

    What great drawings and what great fun. I went out and listened to Amanda Palmer on “Ted Talks”. She is awesome.
