Good show! That’s me and Subliminal and me and the shadow (in a tribute to moby’s hat) chillin’ at the after party. Israeli rappers Subliminal and the Shadow will be playing in New York City tonight – their last show in North America before heading off to the European leg of their tour. I have to say it was heartening to see all the Israeli flags and oversize magen Davids. The ironic thing was that all that love of Israel sentiment was being projected to and by an audience made up mostly of yordim and their children. Whatever – I had a good time and when we all song Hatikvah it was sweet. For a group fronted by someone that some people call a war mongering fascist, they sure did sing a lot of songs about peace. They also performed in Hebrew, English, French and Arabic – there was definitely a strong Mizrachi influence and few ashkenazim were to be seen (except for the usual gang from the Ghetto Shul and Hillel). Anyhow, click on if you want to see a couple more pics from the show.
