In honor of the release of their new CD, Lost and Found, Aqua and the Tribe invited the Boulder Klezmer Consort and singer-songwriter Rabbi Joe Black to perform with them at the Mercury Cafe tonight. It's really just an opportune coincidence that the show happens to fall on the fourth night of Hanukkah, but it adds to what Aqua calls the "ecumenical holiday-ness" of it all. "Even though it’s not really a Hanukkah event, it’s something for Jews -- and hopefully people who are not Jews -- to do on Christmas Eve," he says. "We'd like to get people up and dancing."
That sounds like a plan: The music starts at 8 p.m. at the Merc, 2199 California Street. Admission is $15 cash at the door; go to www.mercurycafe.com or call 303-294-9258 for details.
