I don't see why finding gigs in NYC would be off topic. After all NYC is home
to a wealth of talented Jewish musicians. Hell, NYC is an oasis of Jewish
culture. I don't see how anyone would have difficulty finding a club gig in
NYC. KLEZTRAPHOBIX has two club gigs on the same night. Read our shameless
Mazal tov to all you KLEZTRAPHOBIX fanatics. We need you to come to
a couple of shows. In fact we booked both shows in one night at
different venues to make your life easier. The first show is this
coming Tuesday, April 27th, 2004 @ 9pm @ Club Seho (formerly Club
Lickwed)113 Ludlow St. (between Rivington and Delancey) Lower East
Side, NYC, just a few blocks away from the Williamsburg Bridge. By
subway: J, M, Z, F to Delancey / Essex St. Yes kiddies, there is no
cover so you'll have some extra dough for your bagels and coffee in
the morning. We're going to WOW you with some old Klezmer standards
as well as hit you over the head with some new material.
Then, just when your body is telling you to go home, WHAM, we're all
catching cabs to Dr. Jelly Finger's Paradise Jam @ Otto's Shrunken
Head and Tikki Bar located 538 E 14th St. between Ave. A & B. This
is the Times Square of the East Village. We're going to bum-rush
the stage and take over this open mic @ approximately 11:30pm. Oh,
and the price of addmission is FREE!
What: Live shows
When: Tuesday, April 27th
Where: Club Seho @ 9pm, Otto's Shrunken Head @ 11:30pm
Why: Because YOU have to.

RE: GIGS,WHO IS IN CHARGE
When I was a young man there was a rule at the Sunday dinner table to restrict
topics to those
"of general interest". Is the difficulty of one group of musicians finding a
gig in one venue in New York
a topic of "general interest"?

Maybe you were getting someone who didn't know

Presumably I'm "speaking" with the guy in charge for now: Steve Lurie. Not
I send a packet and the first thing that comes back is "Do YOU think you can
get 50 people there?" Almost like a dare. You send a CD, full of good reviews
in the envelope and a decent bio and that's what he says first thing?? They
needn't approach people that way. After all, you're not getting a king's
ransom; it's called "da door!" I' would think there more pleasant ways to get
a dialogue going. And it continued downhill from there. Did you hear, Rukhl,
from this "horse" Steve or do you think it was someone else?
