Saturday, March 10 & Sunday, March 11th, 8pm, JEWLICIOUS HALL
1309 E. 3rd Street, Long Beach CA 90802
Presenting some of the best in new Jewish music from Israel and the USA, Jewlicious Festival is bringing an international cadre of talented musicians to Long Beach, March 9th-11th, 2007. A music selection committee composed of students and grads met over several months to pick out the music for this year’s festival. All Dynamic, exciting, and indie, these artists represent a milestones for the three year old Festival. Eight separate acts over two nights, in a feast of great music.
Jewlicious Festival started three years ago, and has grown into the largest Jewish student festival in the United States. Students from a dozen states and over 30 schools are gathering for the weekend at the Alpert Jewish Community Center.
The current line-up includes Eastern European folk-punk band Golem, lower east-side folk-rocker Rav Shmuel performing with dance-pop fusion band The BloodSugars, Israeli indie band missFlag and the unique sound of Soulico Crew from Tel Aviv, the heavy metal band The Makkabees, “Jewish-indie-ska mashup” band Shankbone, and DJ Eric Rosen & Twelve Tribes Live Percussion Ensemble.
Recently added new artists are JJ Keki, Grammy Award nominated musician from Uganda, and My Second Surprise, whose debut video won the Israeli Video Awards.
Jewlicious Festival is adapting a recently vacated prayer house with amazing acoustics, to house the festival concerts. So, if you cannot make the entire Festival (which is a bummer because it will be amazing) then you must at the very least come and see these shows. We will be selling a limited number of tickets for JUST the concerts starting today. For those over 21, there will be bargain beer and wine.
As with all Festival tickets, these are heavily subsidized by our sponsors and patrons who want you to enjoy an amazing festival. So the costs to you are very affordable: $15 for general admission and $10 for students for both nights. Please consider coming for the whole weekend even if you can’t do everything.
This is the most amazing program ever!
