Hold onto your hats Cali, one of New York's hottest bands is blowin your way! Brooklyn's very own Klezmer-Rock band, Golem, is gathering up some East coast energy that's gonna explode upon arrival. The young, hip and widely acclaimed, Golem (named after the legendary Jewish Frankenstein of Prague) transforms the music of its Jewish grandparents, making it modern, edgy, sexy and brash. Golem has infused the World Music scene with a breath of fresh air from Eastern Europe. Their explosive onstage attitude gets Klezmer to rock.

The Band is hard at work and has just released their new CD, Homesick Songs, a Jewish party in a box. The CD includes updated versions of Yiddish chestnuts and lesser- known tunes, all love songs to the towns of Eastern Europe. Homesick Songs will wake the golem itself. From Lincoln Center's Damrosch Park to the rock clubs of the Lower East Side, Golem seduces audiences of Klezmer fans and rockers alike.

Nice Jewish Girls Gone Bad is a refreshing mix of comedy, music, spoken-word and show-stopping burlesque, told by the gals who got drunk at their Bat-Mitzvahs and would rather have more chutzpa than chupah.

Be prepared for a night of hilarious theater and an intimate, memorable musical experience with Golem.


I saw Good Jewish Girls Gone Bad in LA on Mar.3rd. It was very funny. I just HAD to buy the t-shirt, and built my Purim costume around it, appearing as a punk rocker and singing a rap song. What made it really funny was that I'm the Rabbi of the shul. great success - and wanted the Bad Girls to see the picture. Can you give me a direct email address so I can forward the pictures? Thanks.

You will want to contact the event sponsors directly - there is no connection between this calendar listing and either the event folks on Good Jewish Girls Gone Bad (other than fandom). There should be contact info on the calendar listing. Otherwise, you may want to try to contact Golden Land Management, who, I believe, manage the ensemble: http://www.klezmershack.com/contacts/klezlabels.html#goldenland

Good luck,
