(Dec. 20) Hunukkah on the Ellipse
Hanukkah is on the horizon and it’s also on the Ellipse today. The National Menorah is lit this afternoon with a fair amount of pomp and circumstance.
(Dec. 21) The Music Pilgrim Trio
North Bethesda’s Strathmore has an assortment of Jewish music courtesy of The Music Pilgrim Trio tomorrow. You can expect Israeli, Klezmer and traditional Hanukkah songs.
(Dec. 21) Jewmongous
For something less traditional and less appropriate for the tykes there’s Jewmongous tomorrow night at the Birchmere in Alexandria. Funny man and musician Sean Altman sings satirical – and often bawdy – songs about “the trials and tribulations of the tribe.”
(Dec. 24-26) Oy Vey in a Manger
Harmony and humor mix this weekend at Washington’s Theater J too. San Francisco-based drag queen quartet The Kinsey Sicks perform Oi Vey in a Manger -- a good natured, irreverent send-up of holiday songs.
Music: “Not Too Eggy” by New Orleans Klezmer All Stars
