According to the Ukulele Unlimited Newsletter:
“If you happen to find yourself in Dublin’s fair city and you fancy some ukulele music, head over to Ukulele Tuesday at the Stag’s Head Pub, just a five minute walk from bustling Grafton Street. A fervent group of uke enthusiasts takes over the upstairs portion of the well-known watering hole every Tuesday evening at 7:45. Judging by this video–a rousing cover of the Talking Heads’ “Psycho Killer”–there is loads of fun to be had!”
WUG had a crack a this song a few years ago at our Christmas Party. Maybe it’s time to trot it out again! Enjoy.
Here’s a beautiful TED talk. Well, it’s actually a TED ‘play’ as there is little talking.
It may make you feel vaguely inadequate, but we can’t all be JAKE-I’M-A-UKULELE-GOD-SHIMABUKURO

here are some possible songs for the Hank Night this year, courtesy of Ray. For everyone to play and decide if you would like to keep ’em!
Riding thru the Dandenong Ranges
Setting the Woods on Fire
All the sailors got drunk. Or was it all the flashes got sailored? All the drunk got mobbed? No, wait, all the scuppers got long boated. No, hang on, all the plug holes got blocked with tin ukuleles. And got flashed. And mobbed. And rusty razors were involved.
Surprised anyone made it out alive quite frankly.
Well done to those flash mobbers the other weekend, as whoever it was from the audience said ‘there’s another one!’
