Live Jewish Music Every Tuesday Coming to the Upper West Side this Fall

I'm still sad about the demise of the East Sixth Street Klezmer Industrial Complex. For a moment, the basement of the shul on East Sixth Street was the address for world class Jewish art. If you came early you could drop in on some Jewish learning and if you stayed late (and were a Jewish male) you'd probably be drafted into maariv minyan. And if you wanted a drink, the bar was only a few feet away from anywhere in the room. In short, it was the kind of Jewish space funders should be tripping over themselves to fund. And yet...

Happily, the spirit of East Sixth Street has undergone a gilgul hanfefesh (transmigration of the soul) and headed uptown, to the Stephen Wise Free Synagogue on W. 68th Street. Drummer Aaron Alexander is curating a new series this fall and it looks amazing. Despite its lack of proximity to Indian food (and the general suburban wasteland that is the west 60s), Tuesdays at Stephen Wise will obviously be a must-see/must-hear for this fall.
