A Very Musical Week

Fresh off a packed Shabbat Dinner at Next Dor, and some ridiculous storms, The St. Lou Jew wants you to know about all of the great music taking place in St. Louis this week.

We'll get right to it. After an impromptu acoustic jam session at Next Dor last night, it dawned on us that there is a lot of music going on in and around STL this week.

Tuesday, Cincinnati based band Foxy Shazam will be tearing up Off Broadway
with a show that has earned it a Riverfront Times Critic Pick. Bonus points for having keyboard player Sky White, with whom I conquered the Bogart's High School Battle of the Bands back in the day.

Wednesday, while it may not quite be music, the Jewish Bikers club is having a meeting at the Hacienda on Manchester. I'm so intrigued by the concept, I may just have to check it out.

Thursday, slide on down to Beale on Broadway to check out one of St. Louis' own stars, Kim Massie as she performs your favorite soul and R&B tunes.

Friday, KDHX, St. Louis' own independent radio station will be hosting a tribute to James Brown at Off Broadway.

If you happen to be in Fayetteville, Arkansas on Friday, come check out STL's Autiomadic with Hardaway and the Commoners.

Saturday, Start off the evening with Chana Rothman, a newly crowned queen of Roots/Rock/Jewfolk music, who will be performing at Temple Emmanuel in the early evening. Following that, check out SLIC's Israeli Independence Day party. Cap off the night with a huge dance party at the Gramophone to make it a well balanced night.

Just announced, on Sunday, The Moshav Band, an Israeli-American group, will be performing for free at United Hebrew. More details here.

I told you it would be a busy week!
