On March 18, old world sounds get a new school spin when Hot Pstromi updates Lower East Side sounds that were all the rage when the 1887 Eldridge Street Synagogue first opened. Bandleader Yale Strom’s compositions mash traditional klezmer, jazz, non-Jewish, Gypsy, world beat and Balkan music.
Opening March 21, artist Liana Finck exhibits original drawings from “A Bintel Brief” — her debut graphic novel (in progress), based on a popular advice column in The Forward.
Yale Strom and Hot Pstromi appear Sun., March 18, at 3pm. Tickets are $20, $15 for students/seniors. “A Bintel Brief” opens Wed., March 21 at 7pm and is on display through May 31. Admission to the opening is free; then, included with regular museum admission ($10, $8 for students/seniors). Both events take place at the Museum at Eldridge Street (based in the 1887 Eldridge St. Synagogue; 12 Eldridge St., btw. Canal & Division Sts.).
