the cherpas

brooklyn-based band the shondes describe themselves as follows:

We are, in a word, Shondes: as queers and trannies, radical activists, three
anti-occupation Jews and a Shiksa, we're shondes to the communties we come
from, and make passionate and political music to say that we're proud to be a
shonde! Our sound is driving and dramatic Rock music, with heavy Classical
influences; imagine Yiddishe spawn of Patti Smith, R.E.M., Sleater Kinney, and
Bach. With drums, bass, guitar, violin, and intertwining vocal melodies, all
instruments are foregrounded in the style of a classical quartet but coalesce
like a rock band to make a fresh and unexpected sound.
sounds good to me. the shondes are playing "chametz rock - a radical jewish passover" on april 15.
