Event description

Description

The 80th anniversary of the Battle of Cable Street falls this year during the Jewish high holy days. As Hashem descends closer to earth to pass judgment on us, let her see that we still SHALL NOT LET THEM PASS. 

This high holy day season, join Jewdas and the Boxing Club for an Anti-racist benefit meets Yom Kippur Ball, in this iconic building at the foot of Cable Street. Celebrate all the sins you are glad you commited. Dress like you hope the messiah never comes. 

 Starring:

DANIEL KAHN AND THE PAINTED BIRD
Daniel Kahn - vocals/accordion 
Hampus Melin - drums 

Michael Tuttle - bass

And special guest Merlin Shepherd - Clarinet 


"Daniel Kahn & The Painted Bird are to Klezmer what the Pogues were to Folk: shtetl music spiked with a proper shot of Punk. . . Polyglot, Paneuropean Punkfolk. Kahn writes great crooked songs between Leonard Cohen and Mordechai Gebirtig, between Nick Cave and Hirsch Glik. With a light hand, he translates and adapts old songs, making them his own."  - Die Zeit
