My February got off to an amazing start with Gunned Down Horses at The Zone. Gunned Down, Stripped Down, Unplugged – is an intimate, acoustic show, but not at all your ordinary acoustic show. Excellent genre-bending musicianship with an elegance and sense of the macabre that always reminds me of Edgar Allan Poe – if Poe wrote music and had a sense of humor (read the full review here)

Looking forward to all the great shows ahead!

FRIDAY FEBRUARY 22ND

Blind Orchestra at Beit HaYotzer (Hangar 22 Port of Tel Aviv)! Fantastic music, action, suspense, and the kind of party you wish would never end – Blind Orchestra is all that and more (read the full review here ). Emerging from the perpetually creative brain of Dov ‘Balu’ Rosen (founding member of The Angelcy & Lo Dubim), the concept is very intriguing: in each performance a different ensemble of musicians performs blindfolded, in sets of improvised music, conducted by touch, with a different conductor for each set. This sessions improv gang: Marianne Tur – Violin, Dor Levin – Drums, Synths, Dvir Golan – Saxophones, Nitai Marcos – Bass, Eyal Tafesh – guitar, Freshon Ski – Vocals & Beatbox; ,Adi Gershon – Vocals; Dov Balu – Drums. Doors open at 21:30, show starts at 22:00. Tickets are 40 NIS and may be ordered via this link.

SATURDAY FEBRUARY 23RD

Tigris at TEDER (Jaffa Road 9)! Merging African percussion instruments, guitar, bass, keyboards, electronica and an otherworldly vibe, Tigris sends a visceral message that penetrates deep. The first time I heard their new EP Lightning, the music felt like subversive invasion that takes over your body, making it move to the rhythm of the driving dark beat of an alien heart. Performing: Ilan Smilan – guitar; Amir Sadot – bass; Roei Hermon – keys; Itamar Katzir – African drums; Oded Aloni – cajon & percussion. Doors open at 19:00, show at around 20:30, admission free.

SUNDAY FEBRUARY 24TH

Blues & Booz hosts Blues for Mama Nina Simone’s B-day featuring Hagar Levy at Pasaz (Allenby 94)! Hagar Levy is a singer-songwriter whose voice resonates with beauty and power. When she sings, she’s all in, and she has the courage to put it out there, to be open. Pain, joy, anger, hope, dreams – you can hear it all in her voice; her vulnerability and her strength. Hagar Levy approaches her tribute to Nina Simone in the same way, with sincerity, intelligence, and an open heart. Nina Simone (1933 – 2003) is an almost mythological figure – pianist, vocalist, composer, activist. Everything she said, wrote, or performed is marked by her distinctive style. Hagar does not attempt to reproduce that style, but rather enters into Simone’s oeuvre, singing the songs of Nina Simone, as Hagar Levy. And it all works beautifully. Doors open at 22:00. Following the show there will be the traditional Blues & Booz jam.

Twin Tree Grove at The Container (Jaffa Port)!

Doors open at 21:00, show starts around 21:30 – 22:00, admission free.
