Balkan Beat Box

LeeVees and Balkan Beat Box
December 21, 2005 - December 27, 2005

With the holiday season around the corner, visions of Hannukah gelt, potato pancakes and menorahs are starting to swirl-why not celebrate the festival of lights this year with some of the hippest Hannukah music you're bound to hear anywhere?

JDub Records, Jewish Funds for Justice, and Progressive Jewish Alliance invite you to come celebrate the holiday with the infectious indie-pop Hanukkah tunes of The LeeVees (featuring Adam Gardner of Guster and Dave Schneider of the Zambonis), and the multicultural musical mayhem of Balkan Beat Box, a band of New Yorkers, Israelis, Africans, and Bulgarians, for a five-city US tour this December:

Dec 21: BBB - San Francisco @ Café du Nord $12 advance/ $15 DOS
Dec 22: BBB - Los Angeles @ Knitting Factory $12 advance/ $15 DOS
Dec 24: BBB - Brooklyn @ Southpaw - $15 advance/20 DOS
Dec 26: The Leevees - New York @ Bowery Ballroom - $12 advance/$15 DOS
Dec 27: The Leevees - Boston @ Paradise - $12 advance/14 DOS

Turn the Festival of Lights into the Festival of Rights with a unique menorah-lighting by local social justice activists, party late into the night, and get ill on jelly donuts!
