As we prepare to enter the Springtime, the season of pilgrimage and slaughtered lambs, the season of feasting and rejoicing, the season of energies unbridled and blood flowing loose in the veins, we of The Sway Machinery prepare to say a fond farewell to TOMER TZUR, who will be moving back to his native land of Israel at the end of the month. For me personally, NYC without Tomer is almost as hard to imagine as New York without graffiti on the subway cars and the 2nd Avenue Deli standing proudly on the corner of E 11th Street. These things, too, we have seen pass. But before I start pulling out my third hanky, I'll have you all know, there's a party starting and it won't stop 'till we all drop. This Sunday night at Zebulon, starting at an unwholesome hour and going until it's time to go, we will regal our friends and fans with our music and enjoy the company of my man Tomer Tzur in good old-fashioned style.

ROC stands for Congregation Ramat Orah but I will not be leading services - they have set up a stage in their rec room and the space has a great vibe. I know because I played there a few months ago and it was really fun! There's a band called Eden playing at about 9:15 or so and I go on at about 10:15 - so come on out and catch some real fun music on a rainy Saturday night in NYC. Because you can."

C Lanzbom and Chana Rothman, The Living Room, NY, NY, November 10, 2009

NEW YORK, NY Uplifting groove-oriented music that combines hip hop, reggae, folk, and a bit of Hebrew.

The concert takes place on Tuesday November 10, 2009 at 8pm at the Living Room, 154 Ludlow Street, NYC. Cover charge is $12. Chana will be sharing the bill with C Lanzbom and BettySoo. This concert is part of WFUV's "On Your Radar," a live music series sponsored by John Platt, host for WFUV's Sunday Breakfast. For more information about the show, contact (212) 533-7237 or visit www.livingroomny.com.

WFUV will also air an in-studio session on Sunday November 1 from 10-11 a.m., featuring Chana Rothman and C Lanzbom on John Platt's Sunday Breakfast at 90.7 FM in New York and on the web at wfuv.org.

MORE ABOUT CHANA ROTHMAN:

Chana's music, using two languages and ancient texts to address social ills and joys of today, brings a universal appeal. The message is unity through music. Two years as a Head Songleader in Reform Judaism's teen leadership summer camps helped Chana develop a passion for music as a tool to bring communities together.

RICHARD ANTONE of ELMORE MAGAZINE writes: "Rothman's music bubbles with a conscious vibe that's capable of bringing people together. She is adept at using religious imagery and bilingual lyrics as a bridge rather than a wedge."

Chana's debut album, "We Can Rise," (Oyhoo Records) produced by C Lanzbom, was voted "Best Album of 2007" by jewschool.com and she was featured in "Top 5 Women Who Rock" by American Jewish Life and Lilith Magazine. Chana was also featured in the documentary film "Jewish Music: More Than Just Klezmer" produced by Brooklyn College Media Department.
NEW YORK TIMES says of Chana Rothman:"Worth Checking Out"

MORE ABOUT C LANZBOM

C Lanzbom has a very diverse career in performing around the world playing guitar, writing music, producing, and engineering. He has written with Perry Farrell (Janes Addiction), and shared the stage with him and artists such as Dispatch, Bruce Hornsby, Mickey Heart, and many more. C has had his music placed in Movies (When Do We Eat), and many T.V. shows including, MTV's The Real World "Sydney" and Real world "Brooklyn","The City" and various T.V. commercials.

"One of the things I love about Jewish music is that it brings communities together," said Rick Recht. "I look at these gatherings as an incredible opportunity to get inside each and every person and help them to get loose, open up and connect with each other in a really positive, Jewish way."

Performing more than 125 concerts each year from coast to coast, Recht produces a unique blend of pop, radio-friendly music in Hebrew and English based on Jewish text and themes of social responsibility. A charismatic performer, Recht is known for powerful, interactive performances that have earned him a strong, loyal national fan base of all ages.

"This is exactly the type of Jewish programming that Kehillath Israel is known for," explains Jennifer Rudin, KI's Director of Congregational Learning. "There is so much light in Rick's music. It is a perfect way for the entire community to celebrate Chanukah."

Kehillath Israel looks forward to hosting the Greater Boston Jewish Community at this Thursday night of Chanukah concert. We will celebrate together in song as we rock all ages!

Description:

9Volt, the avantgarde, jazz-based New York City trio who recently released Open Circuit, perform a record release show on Feb. 19 at Konceptions at Korzo. The outfit features a collection of New York's brightest
underground jazz players including trombonist Rick Parker, guitarist EyalMaoz and drummer Yonadav Halevy. All About Jazz said Parker is a "powerful young jazz musician to be reckoned with," adding "Parker and his band are the best-kept secret in New York right now." John Zorn described Maoz as "a cutting edge guitarist who combines the harmonic lyricism of Bill Frisell with the angst and skronk of Marc
Ribot... keep your eyes and ears on this guy." Halevy toured with Arnie Lawrence's band for six years and has been a widely coveted session player performing with Sheila Jordan, Joel Frahm and Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings. Tim Berne guests on the album and will perform with 9Volt on Feb. 19.
Open Circuit, the trio's debut album, was recently released via OutNow Recordings. NYC Jazz Record described the album as "a synthesis of many things that define powerful 'new' music - electronics and other sound elements, very free improvisation and the passion of the world of rock." Open Circuit is now streaming via OutNow Recordings' BandCamp .

Waltham, MA

USA Today calls Peter Himmelman “one of rock’s most wildly imaginative performers.” Whether rocking out, creating crazy audience participation games or singing a Yiddish lullaby, this Grammy-nominated singer songwriter is not to be missed. Peter’s music is finely crafted, direct and honest. From having a video on MTVs rotation in 1985 to leading corporate creativity training music workshops, Peter has seen both the glory and the underside of the music business. He has provided music to such hit shows as ER, Judging Amy, and Bones. He recently completed a successful Kickstarter campaign for his new cd featuring musicians Leland Sklar and Jim Keltner. Yes, he really is Bob Dylan’s son-in-law, too.

In keeping with the flow of energies between Persians and Jews documented in the Scroll of Esther...The Sway Machinery will be joined by Mitra Sumara, a band that plays pre-Revolutionary Iranian pop music, leaning heavily towards the funkiness that was the zeit-geist of serious music heads in the '70s. You will surely enjoy what they bring.

Break the Chains queer dance party w/The Shondes

Saturday, September 24 at 6 PM
Make Shift Boston
549 Columbus Ave,
Boston, Massachusetts

Break the Chains, Boston's favorite all-ages, all-gender, radical dance party featuring nationally touring queer & trans performers returns on September 24th with Brooklyn-based rockstars THE SHONDES, touring on their brand new album BRIGHTON.

Saturday, September 24, 2016
6pm - 10pm @ Make Shift Boston
549 Columbus Ave, Boston

All ages. Break the Chains is wheelchair accessible, and Make Shift Boston has a wheelchair accessible bathroom. Venue is located close to Mass Ave Orange Line, Symphony Green Line, and many buses.

Rolling Stone says the Shondes kick "riot-grrrl furor, arena bombast and klezmer stomp," and if you caught them last time they rocked Break the Chains, you know it's the truth.

$10 - 20 sliding scale suggested donation to support touring queer and trans artists!
