Accordions Make for Cool Jewltide

Can't top the Boston Herald's headline for this concert review (although I will quibble with the reviewer's classification of "Weird Al" Yankovic as a "mega-square" who's hurt the accordion's reputation).

But never mind. I love the sound of the Jewltide Hanukkah party that took place at T.T. the Bear's in Cambridge, and wish I could have made the show, which featured "punk klezmer" band Golem and Socalled, described as "the klezmer Beck."

Oy to the world indeed!

P.S. Looks like you lucky New Yorkers can catch a couple of Jewltide parties with the same accordion-laced lineup this weekend.
