It's July! Can you believe it! We've got a bunch of shows coming up and can't wait to see you for that summer music. Show schedule below.
We also have some exciting plans for August. We will be spending a week studying at the annual KlezKanada retreat, deepening our connection to klezmer and Yiddishkeit in the beautiful mountains outside Montreal. After KlezKanada, we will embark upon an East coast tour — more details on that in our next missive. All funds we receive from shows and merch this summer will support our travel costs for this trip. If you are unable to attend any of our upcoming shows but would like to help us with plane tickets etc., we've got a shiny new donation button on our Bandcamp, which entitles its lucky users to a free download of our chart-topping single, FTP in der Gasn! We can also receive donations via PayPal, Venmo, stocks, bonds, trades (please DM us if you have a commercial jet), and cash. Reply directly to this email for details.
