Jalopy

I took the new camera down to Jalopy last night, where we did alternating sets with Blue Harvest. Of course, I have no pictures of us playing, but I’m pleased with the camera. It’s a Nikon D40, the most basic of Nikon’s digital SLRs, but the real enjoyment was the lens, a Nikon 18-55/2.8 that’s great for these low-light shots.

This was my first time at Jalopy, a new space on Columbia Street overlooking the Battery Tunnel. It’s so new they don’t have a liquor license yet, but they do have a miniature music store up front with some beautiful old guitars and amplifiers, and a few more unusual instruments.

A very old-looking button accordion, which so far as I know has no relation to the music of Africa.

I love the carving above the keyboard on this one.
