Book of J

Jeremiah Lockwood and Jewlia Eisenberg in Concert

Friday, February 9, 9:00 p.m.

About the Program

Be there for a live performance of the debut album Book of J, featuring acoustic guitarist–singer Jeremiah Lockwood (Sway Machinery) and vocalist Jewlia Eisenberg (Charming Hostess). As described by the New Yorker, this “affecting West Coast duo … covers an expansive musical landscape.”

Their folk-revival vibe draws on Yiddish songs of ghosts and police violence, American spirituals, and piyutim (paraliturgical songs) with a queer bent. Expect old-time religion, radical politics, workers and bosses, diasporic languages, hard times resolved, and destiny fulfilled—plus lots of singing along!

Note: Only beer and wine will be available for purchase; Zeidler’s Cart will be closed during this program.
