Dortmund Global Player with Kosta Kostov and Dj Ali

Such a great beginning to the tour.

Domicil club, in Dortmund, is a pretty famous jazz club, but they have had the GlobalPlayer party hosted by the amazing Kosta Kostov and DJ Ali for seven years. Beautiful spot, friendly staff, nice dancefloor, great sound... and the crowd was lovely - people jumped on the dancefloor right away and didn't leave until we turned on the lights!

Such a privilege to play with these guys - the deepest musical selections for hours and hours. Incredible sounds and the audience was pretty much up for everything.

Here's a few shots - It was pretty dark, but you get an idea!


And some happy dancing onstage too!

Ripley's March: Purim, Feminism, Hip-hop and technology in Utah!

Thursday, March 7

Purim Shpil Celebration at
East Midwood Jewish Center

This is the premiere event of the annual radical Purimshpil project, presented by The Workmen's Circle and Jews for Racial and Economic Justice! Since 2002, JFREJ has organized Purim spectacles to offer a powerful example of using cultural abundance for political organizing. This Jewish holiday is a perfect time for, as JFREJ puts it, "... noisemaking, rule-breaking, binary-blurring and an end to business as usual." This night features a folk pageant up-to-the-moment remixing the Book of Esther via live music, giant puppets, intricate hand-made masquerade, an inter-generational cross-cultural cast, audience participation, hamentashen and more! The evening will begin with a performance of the Purimshpil play, followed by music from the Rude Mechanical Orchestra, followed by DJ Ripley at midnight.
