Last night, singer/songwriter, ROI120 participant and Sinai travel buddy Michelle Citrin entertained a packed crowd at Mike’s Place in Jerusalem. Monday night is usually open mic night, but Mike’s Place management graciously consented to allow Michelle to perform a set of her own stuff (check it out at MichelleCitrin.com) and a couple of covers. While Jerusalem has thankfully been spared Katyushas and Qassam’s, Michelle’s gig was a welcome respite from constantly watching the news for the latest word on the state of the current, uh, shit – to paraphrase the ever eloquent US President Bush… Michelle’s set was also visible on a 10 foot screen in the bar courtyard outside for those observing the injunction against listening to live music during the three weeks. Harry (He Knows Thingsâ„¢), who usually matches our Michael for unbridled cynicism, said he enjoyed the show and was even seen to be head-banging during Michelle’s cover of AC DC’s You Shook Me All Night Long. I kid you not. She was THAT good!
And yes. I did forget to bring a camera. You are so clever to have noticed. So sue me, ok?
