September 4-5, 13-14 Jewlia is the Cantor-in-Residence for the Aquarian Minyan for the upcoming High Holy Days, and her band includes two ChoHos. Come if you want a groovy, inclusive, spiritual experience with lots of singing. These services are welcome to ALL PEOPLE, they are sliding scale, pay what you can. More below.
August 15 The rare bird Gramophone & Dynamo appears this week with our beloved Jeremiah Lockwood of The Sway Machinery. G&D explores the Salonikan crucible drawing from violent, sexy rebetika and romantic, funny Sephardika. Also Jewlia and Jeremiah will do some songs together from their upcoming “Book of J.”
