For Lorelai, the happiest night of the year is always the night that Aryeh Naftaly and The Elevators do their Grateful Dead tribute concert in Jerusalem.
The Time has come! Monday night at Caanan (15 Shamai in Jerusalem) Aryeh and the Boys will give it all they've got and we'll be in that magical space again. No one does Grateful Dead like Aryeh Naftaly & the Elevators - and rumor has it our friend Drew Tick (who was one of our special guest DJ's during "The 9 Days of Jerry") will be playing with them as well. Doors open at 9pm, and if the previous three years are any precedent, the show will start later.
Tonight (or is it this morning?)...
We're playing the balance of Leonard Cohen's "Live in London" thru 2am ...
Here's the Overnight Schedule:
2:00am - Mark O'Connor, Edgar Meyer and YoYo Ma "Appalachian Waltz"
3:30am - Bob Marley Live 1975 from the Lyceum
4:15am - Coldplay "A Rush of Blood to the Head"
5:15am - Christine Lavin "The Subway Series"
6:30am - Shoshanna Piano's "Deepheart Journey" and "Gifts from Heaven"
At 8:30 we'll hear Rebbe Nachman's "Tikkun haKlali" and then a few hours of Lorelai's "Morning Dew for the Morning Jew" mix ... ULTRA eclectic this morning, a lot of stuff from The Vaults!
On our "Israeli Soul Afternoon" we'll have music from Eyal Golan, Israeli Supergroup "Tammuz" (they were the Beatles of Israel during the '70's" and HaDag Nahash interspersed between Torahs - 1pm Rebbetzin Rena Richman's "Bat Melech" Series continues with "The Shofar Speaking," 3pm Rav Avraham Sutton's series on the Jewish Holiday Cycle continues with his pre-Yom Kippur shiur, and at 5pm we'll hear from Rabbi Chaim Richman's "Light Unto The Nations" Show, the topic: "Who is Like You?"
At 6pm we'll play the extra-long extended version of The String Cheese Incident - 12/31/2004 from Radio City Music Hall, and believe it or not, that's so long it'll take us right to 11pm, when we'll have The Grateful Dead from October 2nd, 1977 at the Paramount Theater, followed immediately by The Grateful Dead from October 11, 1977 at the Lloyd Noble Theater, University of Oklahoma.
Yeah, we got your back. If you can't be in Jerusalem tonight to go see Aryeh Naftaly & The Elevators "A Grateful Dead Rosh HaShana" we can at least play you two Rosh HaShana-period Dead Shows from 1977 - Lorelai's favorite year for Dead Concerts!
