KNISHMAS! It doesn’t have to be a ’silent night’ for us. Once again we groove into the night with the alternative to xmas eve alternatives.
This year we welcome back the jams of Even Sh’siyah, who infuse the southern rock grooves ala Allman Brothers with Jewish flavor for a heady groove. Their third self-release album, Wake Up, dropped this year. Joining us for the first time is Brooklyn’s RavShmuel, a Rosh Yeshiva by day and beer-drinking, Phish-following singer/songwriter by night. His single “Protocols of the Elders of Zion” became a youtube sensation following the release of his debut album, “Protocols,’ on Sony/JMG.
I'm in Love
JEWMONGOUS is a solo comedy song concert with occasional guests, is the colicky, uncircumcised brain child of SEAN ALTMAN: the golden-voiced, song-writing wiz behind the pioneering comedy song act What I Like About Jew and the founder and former leader of the vocal group Rockapella. Sean was featured in Time Out New York's cover story "The New Super Jews," (with Jon Stewart and Sarah Silverman) and in the New York Times feature about "the Jewish Hipster Movement." He debuted JEWMONGOUS in 2006 and has garnered press accolades coast to coast (see them below).
