Aw yeah. Fun night. Got to see a few friends I hadn’t seen in a bit while enjoying the musical stylings of the Taglit-birthright israel Israelity crew along with about 500 Los Angelinos at the Avalon. Tomorrow night I’ll be in Vegas for the final installment of this bold and audacious concert tour! Stay tuned for more (any?) shenanigans. In the meantime, here’s some pics:
Michelle Citrin opened up. A consummate performer and a Taglit-birthright israel alumna, she connected well with the audience and even treated us to a new song!
Coolooloosh and Rebel Sun wowed us with their cool Jerusalem mix of hip hop, Funk and Jazz! Total booty shaking awesomeness.
They insisted I take their pic and promised to send me $5 if I put the photo online.
Subliminal and the appropriately named Shadow performed to an enthusiastic audience. More Star-of-David festooned bling than two Pico/Robertson Judaica shops, Israel’s ambassadors of Rap and their Tact Family crew rocked the uh… hizouse.
The favorite performer at countless Taglit-birthright israel mega events, an ROI120 alum and proud member of Israel’s fabled Montreal Mafia, Shai 360 was in great form, shimmying and shaking all over the stage while belting out multi-lingual rhymes.
More tomorrow from Vegas!
