But Does He Have Any Klezmer Records?

The Brazilian Bus Magnate Who’s Buying Up All the World’s Vinyl Records.

Bad Move, Givati!

In the J-Post: IDF commander nixes concert by female pop star for fear of offending religious troops.

This is a bad decision by the commander. He could have used the opportunity to build, instead of destroy, unity. Instead of refusing/canceling the show, he should have scheduled the show, and -- unlike the usual army MO which forces religious soldiers to be in attendance when there are female vocalists, against their religious beliefs --  simply exempted those soldiers who felt religiously uncomfortable from going to the show.

This wouldn't have damaged the religious secular unity, which has improved over the course of this water, and also would have set a precedent for religious cooperation about such things within the army structure, which would be a long-term improvement for the religious soldiers he claims he's protecting.

Really poor judgement here.

Steal This Album!

... and play it on Shabbos!

Reverse psychology marketing with a helping of religious guilt. Nice.

Daniel In Babylon - "Give Me The Strength"

Lenny Solomon's latest project...

The Audience Better Buy Lots of Drinks

The Bulletproof Stockings play Arlene's Grocery: All-female Hasidic rock band bans men from show.

The audience better buy lots of drinks, otherwise, there's no point to the venue accommodating them (and other drum women's bands) in the future.
