Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain at Carnegie Hall, October 17, 2012

My only Times review so far to include Eddie Vedder and Zooey Deschanel in the lede graf. (Felt good to sneak in a Buke and Gase mention, too.) I went into this one slightly skeptical, despite a vivid review by Allan Kozinn of the ensemble's 2010 Zankel Hall concert, but came out a convert: The show is a pop-savant's delight, with nostalgic kicks for multiple generations. The medley in the video I've embedded below is a great demonstration of what the ensemble is about.
