Mike Gordon, Amanda Palmer and Lenny Kaye Help Golem Rock The Boat
Golem, the band that occupies its own novel space where Eastern Europe Meets The Lower East Side, will release its latest studio record on August 22. The six-piece, which draws from traditional Yiddish tunes and flavors Slavic sounds with klezmer and punk, has dubbed the release Fresh Off Boat, as bandleader Annette Ezekiel heard a number of these songs from FOBs (recent immigrants fresh off boat’). Joining the group on this disc are such guests as: Mike Gordon, Amanda Palmer (Dresden Dolls) and Lenny Kaye (Patti Smith). Golem will mark the release of Fresh Off Boat, quite fittingly, with a performance on a Rocks Off Concert Cruise to take place Thursday, August 10th.
