Heading to The Living Room in the Lower East Side of Manhattan, we were entertained by the early-evening variety of goblins and such. We were glad that the band was playing early, as this cuts down on the rowdy college kids, gets us better seats, and faster table service.
Luckily, we showed up early to a ... Ukulele Fiesta! While we were prepared for slide guitar, hawaiian undertones, and Bliss Blood's wonderful uke skills, we were treated to an extra hour.
The Moonlighters seem to change up the band periodically, with Bliss' sweet vocals and Uke mastery as the base, however Bliss & Crew never seem to miss. Though the new (Texan!) guitarist amusingly flubbed a line (misspoke "hooker", instead of "hoofer" -- though both are common sights in the city), the music was pleasant and fun.
Walking home -- only about 10:30PM -- we were once again treated to goblins -- but of a decidedly racier sort (the costumes get randier in the evenings here).
A pleasant saturday evening out -- costumes, some beer, and (yes) ukuleles ....
