Dr. Sketchy’s Baltimore’s 11th Anniversary
featuring Sabrina Chap
Saturday, June 1 at The Windup Space
Draw the amazing singer/songwriter Sabrina Chap at our eleventh(?!) anniversary celebration, which will be our last session at The Windup Space—and possibly our last Dr. Sketchy’s Baltimore event ever! The Windup Space has been our beloved home for a decade, and we couldn’t have reached this double-digit milestone without it, so on what will be the Windup’s last day, let’s have a few drinks together to celebrate its eleven wonderful years, and ours, all while make some tipsy sketches of Sabrina, who’ll be striking some sassy poses and singing a couple songs for your inspiration. There’ll be crazy drawing contests with neat prizes from Blick Art Materials, too.
We should mention that Sabrina’s coming down from NYC just for this—it’s been years since she’s performed in Baltimore. It might have made more sense for us to book a beloved Baltimore performer for the last event at a beloved Baltimore venue, but when we learned that the Windup Space was closing and that this might be our last session (which it may very well be, if we can’t find a venue that will be a good fit for us in the next month or so), we approached Sabrina, who’s been a major part of many of our favorite moments at the Windup Space, including the time she serenaded us at our wedding reception afterparty with a cover of “I’ll Make Love to You” by Boyz II Men. She’s only modeled for us twice in our long history, and it’s been seven years since her last session with us, but in those two sessions, she’s made many fans among past and present Sketchy’s regulars, and we’ve gotten quite a few requests to have her back, so to those folks: Here’s your chance—don’t blow it! And to those of you who’ve never heard of her, join us on June 1st to see why we love her so much!
Here’s more about this marvelous performer:
“Sabrina Chap is a Brooklyn-based songwriter, composer and performer. She’s got classical piano skills, the ballad lyrics of Tom Waits, the onstage antics of Phyllis Diller and the voice of a whiskey angel. Described as ‘Rousing!’ by the New Yorker, her sets are a ragtime stompin’ good time, full of laughs, heartbreaks, and just plain good songwriting.
“Sabrina Chap blazes through her boozy, bluesy set with all the delicacy of a pneumatic drill, dishing out smut, satire and existential dread in equal measure. The onslaught is relentless. Think Eartha Kitt. Think female Tom Waits. Think nihilistic Cole Porter. Her comedic deftness is matched by her musical prowess and her magnetism is undeniable.”—Somna Theatre
