Quick review of The Klezmatics in Rome last month

This arrived July 7, but I am just now beginning to unpack the last month or two of email.

We almost got looped into spending 70 euros to see Lou Reed last night in Rome when we discovered--in the nick of time--that the Klezmatics were playing a counter-gig. We missed them two years ago, but hauled tuches out to see them last night. By mid-show Romans were tantzing and whirling and wondering who those cats were on stage. They blew and shpilt for two hours. It was great to hear Romans of all types and political leanings crooning "Oy, oy, oy!" together.
