Radical non-Jewish Culture

John Zorn has opened a new music venue in the city.

A few interesting items:

All expenses are paid for by the MUSIC itself —through the online sale of special Limited Edition CDs released yearly on the Tzadik label. Each month a different musician is responsible for curating the programs with 100% of the nightly revenue going directly to the musicians. There are no refreshments or merchandise at The Stone. Only music. All ages are welcome.
The Stone is booked purely on a curatorial basis. We do not accept demos of any kind.
If the current calendar is representative of the kind of music the club intends to feature, then it seems like Jewish music (traditional and avant-garde) will not be well-represented.
