DJ Socalled, Los Angeles, CA, Dec 18

Avada presents the Los Angeles premiere of “master magician
mixologist” DJ Socalled. Working turntables, drum machines, accordion,
piano and vocals (yes, all at once), Socalled mixes strains of jazz, funk
and everything else with klezmer, the music he calls home. Sampling
hip hop beats, old Yiddish vaudeville, and bits of klezmer clarinet, he
crafts soundscapes of unexpected world’s colliding for a shtetl-fabulous
early khanike (Hanuka in Yiddish) dance party.

Socalled is joined by LA musicians from Critical Brass Band, and Ancestry
of Sound, and DJ Josh Kun for a live late night session.

Enjoy an Extreme Khanike Wine Tasting, 8 PM
Confrontational wine-tasting in a nightclub setting.
