Matisyahu, NYC, Mar 6

Some would say Purim is a Jewish holiday about a queen in Persia who saved the Jews of her kingdom from a violently egotistical prime minister. Others would say Purim is a holiday about the masks people wear and how to get behind them. We say, its one of our favorite holidays well worth celebrating in the traditional ways…

With music, dancing, and drinking.

Join JDub, Matisyahu, and Hazon for a Purim night on the lower east side. In the spirit of turning things on their head, we've got an unbelievable bill of things Jewish and Not-So with Hasidic Reggae Superstar Matisyahu, hip hop band Automato and Londonian-Bostonian MC Kabir.

Tickets are only available at the door, so come early, stay late, and drink till you don’t know the difference*.

Sat march 6, 9pm (Matisyahu at 11)

the mercury lounge / 217 e houston b/w ave a and 1st ave (F/V to 2nd Ave) / www.mercuryloungenyc.com

* This show is 21+, but please do not misconstrue this statement. JDub does not condone underage drinking or drinking until you pass out and (Gd forbid) are taken to the hospital to have your stomach pumped. No fun L. Rather, we celebrate with the commandment to drink “ad d’lo yada” – “until you don’t know the difference” – between the good, the bad, and the ugly…which for some of me, I mean us, is a bud light and a prune hamantashen.
