Cali Vacation/Berkeley Gig/New Videos

July 21, 2010 Leave a comment

Going outta town for much dreamed-of and drooled-over California vacation!!

While there I’m doing a gig on Aug 1st in Berkeley at Afikomen with some local talent.

Also, I finally uploaded a bunch of vids from the Tmol Shilshom gig I did over a year ago, in Israel with awesome JC Jones, Harold Rubin and Haim Peskoff. Most of the vids are linked to, here on the Poetry page.
