The Ozen (Ha Ozen HaShlishit – The Third Ear) – a cultural landmark that has been a meeting place and treasure trove for music lovers and film aficionados for the past 35 years, is moving in a new direction with the launching of the OZEN – Sub Culture Center. Celebrating the launch in their newly renovated space, the Ozen will host four nights of music performances, panel discussions, and parties from April 20 – 23, 2022. Performers will include: Gilad Kahana, Red Band, Aya Zahavi Feiglin, Shekel, Tzlil Danin, Corinne Allal, SAZ, WC, and more…
The Third Ear was founded by Miki Dotan in 1987. Originally established near the Maariv Bridge, the alternative record store/pub soon moved to Shenkin Street, and after a sojourn there, moved to its current location on 48 King George Street in 2005. A hub for the music scene, The Third Ear is the place to go for those hard-to-find vinyls and CDs, as well as newly released music, films, and live shows. Its new renovation and launch of the OZEN – Sub Culture Center marks the beginning of a new direction, with an emphasis on creating a cultural center for musicians, artists, and music lovers.
