The Shondes to play Ypsilanti, the Red Sea Pedestrians to play Farmington

I've been delinquent in my coverage of local shows lately, but no more! No more I tell you. The North Coast (aka Michigan) is no barren wasteland. We may not be New York or San Francisco, but we there is no shortage of Jewish music happening locally. Here are two upcoming shows to check out. I plan on being at both. If you see me, say hi.

The Red Sea PedestriansAugust 15 - The Red Sea Pedestrians, at Rhythms in Riley Square in Farmington, Michigan.
The Peds are a 'neo-klezmer' folk band described as a "one-of-a-kind, full-blown, instrument-swapping fusion between tradition and the here-and-now." This is a free show on the Farmington a town square.

The ShondesSeptember 3 - The Shondes, at TC's Speakeasy in Ypsilanti, Michigan.
The Shondes are fabulous raucus and beautiful punk band out of Brooklyn, NY. I caught them at TC's last November. It was a great show. I was a fanboy and got them to autograph a band picture. I'm such a nerd.

See you there!
