  • Cultural Mix Inspires Revenge’s Warfield

    By Karla S. Blume

    April 27, 2006 | 8:00 pm

    Get out a pen and the map to Los Angeles. Now, draw a crooked line from the dense neighborhoods of South Central to the suburb-hubbub of North Hollywood. No, this is not a story about a Metro route but rather one about familial roots. Justin Warfield, the monotone-voiced, seductive...

    Two minutes into a What I Like About Jew concert, singer Rob Tannenbaum hears chairs scraping and feet trudging toward the exit.

    "We tell people, 'Look around, because not all of you are going to be here until the end,'" says the band's co-founder, Sean Altman.

    Never mind that the...

  • Rocker Grrrl Memoir Charts Swift Decline

    By Marc Ballon

    April 6, 2006 | 8:00 pm

    Zeroing in on 30, rocker Jen Trynin gave herself an ultimatum: either make it now or get out of the game.

    Her youthful looks belied the years she spent slogging through the Boston music scene without much to show for it besides too many hangovers. Having graduated from what she...

  • Shticking It to the Classics

    By Nancy Sokoler Steiner

    September 29, 2005 | 8:00 pm

    My 5-year-old thinks "My Yiddishe Mama," the soulful ballad immortalized by Sophie Tucker in 1928, is a rock anthem. The version he learned didn't come from a dusty old record, but from a CD released in 2004 by the group, Yiddishe Cup, called "Meshugeneh Mambo."

    This is not your...

    July 14, 2005 | 8:00 pm

    When you ascend the rose red pillars towering over the Arava desert, you hardly expect to look down upon the biblical Mishkan. But that's exactly what you'll find replicated at Israel's picturesque Timna Park just outside Eilat.

    Stretching across the desert near the Jordanian border...

    July 14, 2005 | 8:00 pm

    "Litigation is one of the sincerest forms of flattery," said David Segal, co-founder of Jewsrock.org. Shortly before the Web site -- which originally used the phrase, the Jewish rock and roll hall of fame -- was to go online earlier this year, Segal and partner Jeffrey Goldberg were...

  • Saved His Soul With Rock ‘n’ Roll

    By Marc Ballon

    May 19, 2005 | 8:00 pm

     

    Rock 'n' roll saved Gary Stewart.

    It's not that he ever felt desperate enough to end his life, but music played a major role in keeping him out of the abyss. The Beach Boys' masterwork "Pet Sounds" made him realize that others shared his feelings of loneliness, alienation and...

  • 7 Days In Arts

    Aaron Samson wrote and stars in "Not Dead Yet," a piece inspired by his grandfather's memoirs of his Russian past: working for Leon Trotsky, the consequent threat of execution by Russia's communist regime and his quick escape to the United States where he began a new...

  • ‘Lucky’ Friends

    By Julie G Fax

    July 1, 2004 | 8:00 pm

    Since they met at a mommy and me 13 years ago, Adam Schlesinger and Sean Abramson have been coming up with innovative schemes together, such as the time they sold novelty items like Whoopie Cushions and electrified hand buzzers. (They pulled in $100.)

    But now the two recent graduates...

  • The New Color of Rock

    By David Finnigan

    April 22, 2004 | 8:00 pm

    Does New York's Orthodox Jewish rock band Blue Fringe have groupies? "It's not really sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll," lead singer Dov Rosenblatt, 22, said. "One father e-mailed us and he wrote it reminded him of 'Beatlemania.'"

    About 4,000 fans attended the Yeshiva...

  • Etan G—A Nice Jewish Homeboy

    By Naomi Pfefferman

    March 4, 2004 | 7:00 pm

    "Yo, welcome to my crib."

    It's a greeting one might expect, say, in a hip-hop movie, but is slightly jarring from this friendly, compact boychick wearing a knitted yarmulke in the doorway of his Pico-Robertson apartment.

    The boychick is Etan G, who calls himself The Jewish Rapper...

    September 4, 2003 | 8:00 pm

    For young American males of a certain generation, catching a Van Halen concert was a coming-of-age experience. So imagine Scott Benarde's surprise when he learned firsthand that the band's iconic lead singer shared his rite of passage -- in the cultural sense.

    Backstage at a 1986...

    July 10, 2003 | 8:00 pm

    Where Credit Is Due

    The Israelites complain, again, that they don't have water (Numbers 19:1-21:34). God tells Moses to make water pour from a rock by talking to it. Moses, in his anger at the whining Israelites, yells at them: "You'll see how we [him and Aaron] will make water...

    November 21, 2002 | 7:00 pm

    From Lennon and Jagger to Bono and Shakira, America has never been reluctant to import its treasured rock stars. The road to the top is a little more crooked when you're the quartet in RockFour, a psychedelic rock band from Tel Aviv. But the band, already a gold-selling act in...

    The fabled Poogy, Israel's most celebrated rock band, is reuniting in the United States next month for a three-city tour, billed as their "final reunion." It's worth watching the reviews to see how they're received. The results will offer data on the state of Jewish identity and...
