11.08.05: Northeast Tour: Bahston Rahks!

Soooo much happened during the Boston leg of the tour, and I don't even have time to catch up now but I'll tease ya with a few highlights until I have time to elaborate, such as...hobnobbing with famous Israeli actors, a raucous 150-person crowd at our midnight screening, hanging with Pakistani punks, and Seth flying all the way out to Boston for 24 hours so he could see the movie play at the theatre where we had our first date. Awwwww.

(Late Nite Q & A at the Boston Jewish Film Fest. And they say Jews talk with their hands?!)

More soon, and in the meantime I am SO ready to go home. This has been a looooooong three weeks.

(P.S. If you're really excited about all this nonsense, feel free to peruse my "vacation slideshow" visual account of the Northeast Tour at Flickr.)

10.29.05: Northeast Tour: The Genders

As I mentioned in the previous post, the Israeli rock band The Genders is on tour right now in the US and Heather and I had the pleasure of checking out their CD release show last night at the Lit Lounge.

They are probably stopping in your town soon, so GO SEE THEM.…

…Not just because they are a band from far away who got off their asses to come all the way over here…

…Not just because they put on a great show, fronted by Amir Neubach’s lanky frame, which is perfectly suited to thrashing about the stage…

…Not just because they don’t take themselves too seriously to sing the line, “ I put the Man in your Manishewitz, baby”…

…Not just because they are an Israeli band who rocks, but because they are a band who rocks. Period.
