Let the Gentiles feast on pork. Its a small concession; after all, the Jews are taking back rock n roll. Rob Tannenbaum and David Fagan make up the lounge/pop/rock and hilariously kosher shtick Good for the Jews. Songs like Shiksas are for Practice, and They Tried to Kill Us (We Survived, Lets Eat) will illuminate this (lesser celebrated) 15th night of Hanukah when the Putting The Ha! In Hanukah tour makes the pilgrimage to N.Y.C.C. (8221 Glades Rd., Boca Raton). Sure, its unorthodox. And cheeky. But anything that brings Jdaters and Gentiles together for a night of debauchery is well worth the gelt ($20).
Dont worry, they arent all act. Both Fagan and Tannenbaum know good music. Fagan is in the Rosenbergs a band thats opened for everyone from the Strokes to Duran Duran. And Tannenbaum? Well, hes the music editor at Blenderand a frequent contributor to all of those other rock rags you let pile up in archival fashion cause you just cant bear to part with em. (Their mothers must be so proud.) Join the boys tonight at 8 p.m.. Call 561-470-6887 for tickets. Visit www.goodforthejews.net for a preview.
