JDub Records and Taglit-birthright Israel are throwing a Channukah bash "Go 8" in a city near you. At least, as long as you're no where near me. Us North Coaster's are a bit far from hip global civilization to merit a JDub party. Oh well. Maybe next year.
I'm always excited to see the bands that don't normally advertise their Jewishness sign up for Channukah gigs. In addition to the usual JDub crew, including Balkan Beat Box (Go 8 - Los Angees), Golem (Go 8 - Seattle), Soulico (Go 8 - New York), and The LeeVees (Go 8- Washington DC), the lineup will include the idie fav's The Tractenberg Family Slideshow Players (Go 8 - Seattle) and drum & bass'er Mocean Worker (Go 8 - Boston).
By the way, the video is the The Tractenberg Family Slideshow Players. And yes, that's what they usually sound like. I wish I was going to be in Seattle this year."JDub Records and Taglit-birthright israel are excited to announce the launch of the first-ever multi-city Hanukkah concert event series – The 8. All taking place on December 8, 2007, The Eight celebrates the Festival of Lights with parties in New York, Los Angeles, Boston, Seattle, San Francisco and Washington DC (as well as Tel Aviv, Mumbai, Moscow, and Sydney) that will feature music from up-and-coming artists handpicked by JDub, multimedia performances, and a unique menorah lighting ceremony at each event.
