Additional Information

Contrary to popular belief, Golem is neither a towering Jewish Frankenstein who defended the Jews of 17th Century Prague, nor a creature from Lord of the Rings. Golem is a 6 piece Eastern European folk-punk band.

Rock band GOLEM transforms the music of its Jewish grandparents, making it modern, edgy, sexy and brash. Their explosive onstage attitude gets Klezmer to rock.

Their vibrant sound, more at home at rock clubs than synagogues, updates old Yiddish tunes, seduces Klezmer fans and rockers alike. The result is a musical romp through Eastern Europe and a snapshot of shtetl life through the filter of a much younger generation's eyes.

"Smoking hot, a recklessly giddy amalgam of eastern European styles..." The Chicago Reader

presented by KFAR Jewish Arts Center and Global Groove Chicago.
