Tubapalooza is on the way. This time it’s on a Saturday night and not a Friday night so those that observe shabbos can come down and enjoy! Now I’ll be playing tuba all night long with four very different bands. About 6 hours of tuba playing to be exact…. the Queen of Philadelphia’s Klezmer is coming to play Tubapalooza. Yep. Susan Watts and the Fabulous Shpielkehs will be playing Tubapalooza part Deux! Susan’s vocal stylings and trumpet virtuosity are a fierce combination! So grab your honey and put this date in your book. Here is ALL of the info:

KlezCalifornia Resources Page

The folks at KlezCalifornia have put up an excellent resources guide for people “available in the San Francisco Bay Area for performances, lectures, workshops, and classes on various aspects of Eastern European Yiddish culture: klezmer music, Yiddish language, Eastern European Jewish history, Ashkenazi influences on American Jewish life, Yiddish theatre, paper-cutting, and other folk arts.”

Way cool guide.
