Get Out: Jews Rock

who wants to give gene simmons a KISS?Tonight, Rabbi Brian Leiken is discussing the Jewish legacy in rock 'n' roll, from way back in the Tin Pan Alley days to more modern music.

The lecture, called Jews Rock - From Tin Pan Alley to Woodstock: Jews and Rock-n-Roll, is one of the Jewish Museum of Maryland's Brews and Schmooze events.

I like both boozing and schmoozing (and ... Jewzing?), so this event gets the Sessa stamp of approval.

My guess is, he'll talk about Gene Simmons, Bob Dylan and Norman Greenbaum, among many others.

It costs $10 and runs 6 p.m.-8 p.m. at the museum.

Hopefully there will be a Neil Diamond roundtable discussion? Personally I think the good Rabbi should rename it Jewsapalooza. Just rolls off the tongue better.

Thanks Sam! Hope to see you there!
