Purim is Coming - A Reminder from Me and Golem

My favorite high intensity klezpunkers GOLEM have a new video and it is awesome. The song VODKA IS POISON is from their latest CD, TANZ and I cannot recommend it enough. Also, obviously, highly appropriate for the holiday.

I can't embed the video (what the hell?) but you should watch it.

Also, if you're going to be in New York City, you can attend the only Yiddish megile reading (Yehoash edition) with Annette and the superstars of Golem rocking out afterwards.

Details from sponsor Folksbiene Theatre:

"Put on your wildest costume, make some noise, nosh a homentash and cut loose Yiddish Style this Purim with The National Yiddish Theatre Folksbiene

The evening starts with a reading of the Megiles Ester as translated by the poet Yehoash in Yiddish with English supertitles. 

Following the reading, an unforgettable concert with punk infused Rock-Klezmer band Golem.

Hamentashen provided by Ben's Delicatessen.
