A nice crowd on Sunday at the Yalaha Bakery.
Jimmy started the afternoon with a trio of banjo songs, a bold move indeed. The set list also includes a rare cover of a Velvet Underground song, as well as two originals — “Just Ask Becky” and “The Only Boy At the Drive-In Alone” — performed on stage for the first time.
A fun afternoon. Thanks to the audience and to the fine folks at Yalaha Bakery. Jimmy Carl returns to the bakery on Aug. 4.
