Israelity Tour Hip-Hops Down the West Coast This Month
Nothing says Hebrew like some good old (testament) Hip-Hop.
The Israelity Tour, which is sponsored by Birthright Israel, is heading out on a West Coast tour, and will be hitting LA on February 16th for a night of music and comedy. Featured performers included Subliminal, Israel's #1 selling rap artist, and members of the T.A.C.T. Family (kind of like Subliminal's Wu-Tang Clan), as well as hip-hop/funk band Coolooloosh and singer-songwriter Michelle Citrin, a.k.a. Rosh Hashanah Girl. The show is hosted by comic Mo Mandel, who you may have seen on Comedy Central's Open Mic Fight [warning: page automatically shows video].
So what kind of music will you be hearing? We're told by the folks behind the Israelity Tour's blog that "Sivan [of Subliminal's T.A.C.T. Family] 'Emphasizes Social Justice, Under-Emphasizes Own Hotness.'" Still not sure what it's all about? Get a sneak peek of the show in the preview video (above) put together by Birthright Israel. Tickets are a mere $15 in advance...and you know you've got some of that hard-won dreidel game gelt burning a hole in your kosher piggy bank you're itching to spend.
