This was the last Sunday of my two-month-long, every-other-Sunday "residency" at Carytown Cupcakes. What a treat to have my friend Ricky and his brother Jimmy show up! Of course I had to sing, "Ricky got the quarters for the table and broke..." (Slaid Cleaves, "Horseshoe Lounge").
At the end, as I was packing up, a couple came in with a little boy. They asked if I could do one more song, and I said I could do one unplugged. So I played The Decemberists' "Down by the Water". And then I sang, a capella, both "Itsy Bitsy Spider" and "I'm a Little Teapot". Based on the applause, I'd say those were the biggest hits of the day.
