A Mean rreilach

Wisconsin-based Yid Vicious performs
klezmer concert in Ann Arbor.

"The place will shake with all of
our sizzling klezmer songs, so we urge
all of our friends to drop by and we'll
fire up the samovar," Wolfe said. .
Some of the group's favorite tunes
to be played at The Ark engagement
include "Baym Reben's Sude" ("At the
Rabbi's Table"); "Hora Mit Tsibeles"
("Hora With Onions"); "Tantz, Tantz,
Kneydleh" ("Dance, Dance, Matzah
Balls"); and "Nokh a Glezl Vayn"
("Another Glass of Wine").
In addition to "Forverts," a tribute
to the Yiddish newspaper and "The
Devil's Sher," the group will close
with its signature, closing medley,
"Anarchy in the Ukraine."

Midwestern klezmer band
with seven colorful musi-
cians, a controversial punk-
rock title and solid musical
credentials will bring the klezmer
sound to The Ark in Ann Arbor for a
one-night gig Sunday, April 20.
The fact that it's in the middle of
Passover, and on Easter Sunday night,
