RiverVibes welcomes back Carla Ulbrich, with special guest Joe Giacomo, to the Cooperage stage at 3 p.m. on Sunday, Jan. 19.
Ulbrich is a comical singer-songwriter and guitarist whose biggest musical influences are Sesame Street, camp songs, and cat food commercials. She has a love of the absurdities of ordinary life, a somewhat twisted viewpoint, and a way with words.
Her songs cover topics from the mundane to insane: Waffle House, Klingons, psycho exes, how rich she would be if she had a copyright on the F word.
Ulbrich's CDs have been aired on the BBC, Dr. Demento, Sirius XM Radio, NPR (and featured in the documentary "F*CK," a movie about the "F word"). She also appeared in "Sharknado 2" (as a human) and once opened for Twiggy the Water-Skiing Squirrel.
She has been performing since the late 90s, playing in venues small and smaller, from the Clothing Optional Folk Festival to the Bluebird Cafe.
Walk, don't run, and look both ways before crossing, then go hear Carla before the venue she is playing in closes up shop.
This event is BYOB. Comfort food and non-alcoholic beverages will be available for purchase.
