Mezzanine level new reference library – 21:00, 21:45, 22:30, 23:15 – “If music be the food of love, play on” – texts by William Shakespeare set to music and performed by the New Israeli Vocal Ensemble, conducted by Yuval Ben Ozer.

1st Floor Auditorium – 21:00 Vaadat Charigim – if this be the music of desolation and disaster play on – one of my favorite shoegaze bands

22:00 – Vegan Friendly – Geva Alon – guitar & vocals, Amir Rosiani – bass & vocals, Asaf Reiss – drums.

23:00 – Nag Hamצadi – band of journalists, literally.

Administrative floor – classroom 301 – 21:00 onwards Studio Gavra presents a platform to shout out whatever excites, angers, makes you scream in agony or ecstasy – and your scream will be photographed!

Events Room – 23:00 onward – Uri Misgav will talk about the songs that made the Tel Aviv scene.

Lower Basement Floor (-2) – 21:00, 22:00, 23:00 – Girls in Arms – Jenny (Nadav Bossem) and Jana  (Adili Liberman) will take you on a tour of the library archives unlike any other… excellent political satire! They parody to perfection military and general Israeli tropes that will be hilariously familiar to most Israelis, and non-Israelis are sure to have a laugh too, even if they don’t get every single in-joke. Bring an open mind & sense of humor.
