Shameless shilling:

Good For The Jews have a concert tonight at the Highline Ballroom, show starting at 8 pm, with comedian Todd Barry ("Flight of the Conchords") as our special guest. The tour continues at the Triple Door in Seattle on Dec 24; Echoplex in L.A. on Dec 25 (with singer Jill Sobule and comedian Dan Levy as our special guests); Red Devil Lounge in S.F. on Dec 26; and Schuba’s in Chicago on Dec 27. Good For The Jews are a hilarious rock duo from NYC currently on their annual “Putting the Ha! in Hanukkah” pilgrimage. They sing about bar mitzvahs, Passover, JDate, Boca Raton, and the plight of being Jewish during Christmas. No songs about dreidels! And no Israeli folk-dancing. Hear their music at GoodForTheJews.net or MySpace.com/GoodForTheJews. Their national tour is sponsored by Jewcy. “This is not your father’s Judaism: Jews with an edge and proud of it.” * Baltimore Jewish Times “A hilarious musical act. Don’t miss them.” * National Public Radio "The voice of the Jewish hipster movement." * UR Chicago “Good For The Jews’ have been called ‘hilarious’ from coast to coast.” * Philadelphia Weekly Like Sarah Silverman and Jon Stewart, this show is wickedly hilarious.” * Village Voice
