TAU Music 2 @ The Ozen Bar


Music, fun & firgun (a Yiddish word that expresses an altruistic pleasure and the good will to foster and encourage the joy and success of others) are the building blocks of TAU Music, a joint project of the TAU student’s association  and BPM College,  now in its second edition and soon to go on stage at the Ozen Bar on Friday, November 22, 2013!

Launched last summer, the project gives a platform to bands and filmmakers, creating music video clips – great experience and exposure for the students, and fun for everyone! Of the many bands that responded to the call out (the requirement is that at least one band member must be a Tel Aviv University student), 8 have been selected to participate in this year’s project, which included: making a video clip (original music only, no covers), performing live at the Smallbama festival this past fall at Tel Aviv University, and on “Helem Tarbut” (Culture Shock) the TAU student association radio program on FM106. The project is also supported by the Tel Aviv Municipality. Hear the project online here.

This week, you can hear some of the bands at the Ozen Bar on Friday, November 22nd, in a music marathon that starts at 13:00. Get your tickets from the Ozen Bar online.
