Jonathan Berger and Vim Diagrams

Last night I saw Jonathan Berger, a terrific poet/rapper, perform at Sidewalk on Avenue B. We got there late so I only saw one piece, which was terrific, and I look forward to seeing more of his work in the future. He was followed by a two-person act that I believe was called Vim Diagrams. It was comprised of a male chanteuse who played the ukulele and a guitar player back up singer. They did a number of wonderful, wonderful covers, including Kurt Weil and Dolly Parton, and they ended with a wonderful tribute to Bea Arthur, singing Thank You For Being a Friend, the theme from The Golden Girls, which actually got me choked up!
