Join David Krakauer's Klezmer Madness! and dj Socalled on September 14th, 2005 at NuBlu for their performance in conjunction with the CMJ Music Festival. This performance will showcase material from their new album "Bubbemeises: Lies My Gramma Told Me", to be released fall 2005.

With his band Klezmer Madness!, Krakauer has forged alliances among his branch of world music and a multitude of musical genres including jazz, rock, funk and most recently hip-hop.

Krakauer cites this CD as ". . . a whole new chapter in my life as a composer, a musician and a producer." It is a partnering that ushers these two eclectic and influential musicians on to the world dance music stage. " Klezmer has always been dance music, and I see this collaboration with Socalled as a revamped continuation of that."

A self-proclaimed "battle for identity" ensues in the form of an all-out dance party funk fest that entrances with the life-pumping beat of its soul filled tunes.
