Wandering aimlessly around Williamsburg the other night I stumbled across a garage that had been converted into a mini-venue. A classic Brooklyn makeshift space. A heavy wooded table was strewn with roasted peanuts and cheap beer and whisky. People were loose to the Blue Grass band. A slice of mountain Hicksville in an industrial street in Brooklyn. The guy on the washboard was blowing my mind.
