If you enjoy offbeat humor and generally wacky, lively original songs, check out this CD from Professional Smart Aleck Carla Ulbrich.
Her young fans have nicknamed her "Weird Gal" (an homage to Weird Al).
Carla's 2nd CD is live in concert. It features "I Have to Kill You now" (#5 most requested song twice in 2003 on the Dr. Demento show), "The Wedgie," "The Guy who Changes the Light Bulbs" (both also in the Funny Five on Dr Demento), advice on how to build a log cabin and how to pronounce Carla's name, Chicken Sandwiches, a Love Triangle, a rundown on public education in South Carolina, and a death-threat ballad; all the important topics are covered here.
DJs Otto Bost of WDIY, Paul Porzio of WEBR, and Larry Hoyt of WAER all named this disc among their favorite CDs of 2003.
For 10 years, Carla toured almost non-stop, year-round. She has appeared on numerous stages, radio stations, colleges, science fiction and medical conventions, company holiday parties, TV shows and patches of grass, including the South Florida Folk Festival, the Chet Atkins Appreciation Society (CAAS), PAX TV, the BBC, USA TV network, Sirius XM Radio, the Falcon Ridge Folk Festival (voted "most wanted" 2004), Eddie's Attic, and the Bluebird Cafe. She still tours, but not non-stop.
Carla has taught guitar at several colleges and the National Guitar Workshop. She has worked with Modern Man, Bob Malone, What I Like About Jew (Now called Jewmongous) and opened for Cheryl Wheeler, Vance Gilbert, Rev. Billy C Wirtz, The Austin Lounge Lizards, and Lucy Kaplansky. Carla was also a member of the trio Girls Gone Funny for 2 years.
This CD contains 8 previously unreleased songs, 2 previously unreleased instrumentals and 2 previously released songs (new versions).
