The Grove gets its first Jewish music festival on Tuesday. The Avenue J Music Festival will rock the Barnacle State Park on January 14 from 6:30 to 10:30 pm. I think it is going to be outstanding. Some of the world's best alternative Jewish musicians will perform including the Breslov Brothers (seen here kicking butt on Israel's version of "America's Got Talent").
I heard one of the groups, 3 Distant Cousins, on the radio today and they were great, reminiscent of the The Avett Brothers. One of the cousins said, "Its not a Jewish music festival but one with Jewish musicians". Think Bob Dylan, Simon & Garfunkel, or David Lee Roth.
The event is sponsored by Chabad in the Grove. Tickets are $25. For more information go to www.avenuejfestival.com .
