Review for Ezekiel's Wheels Klezmer Band: 
In April, Boston-based Ezekiel’s Wheels Klezmer Band, winners of both the Audience Choice Award as well as City Winery Prize for best klezmer ensemble at the 2012 International Jewish Music Festival, will embark on a tour of the East Coast. With backgrounds in classical music, jazz, improvisation, and folk traditions from all over the world, these five musicians offer an engaging contemporary perspective on traditional Jewish music.  

Internationally-recognized klezmer ensemble Ezekiel’s Wheels brings passion, virtuosity, and contagious energy to every performance. The Wheels improvise with the intimacy of chamber music and the intensity of a rowdy dance band. They are equally at home performing on subway platforms, where they cut their teeth playing for the morning rush hour, as on the stage of the International Jewish Music Festival, where judges heralded them as “a true musical democracy." Additional information about the group, as well as music and video, can be found at www.ewklezmer.com

Taylor Swift’s “1989” Tour Sells Out 2nd Night At Bridgestone

Taylor Swift sold out Bridgestone Arena for the second straight night on Saturday. The entire venue, inside and out, felt like a huge middle school with thousands of giddy adolescents roaming about.

Welcome The Bike Lanes

In just the last week, I’ve driven from North Chattanooga to downtown using North Market numerous times.  I’ve timed it and it has added no extra time to my commute.  In fact, cutting North Market down to one lane slowed folks down and made me feel safer while driving, which is actually the point of the road project. On top of that, I saw an adorable family biking ... (click for more)

Roy Exum: We Want Our City Back

Late Saturday morning, there was a driving rain as I took my khakis to be hemmed by Bruce Baird, who owns a wonderful menswear store on Broad Street, and it was glaringly obvious that what the crazies among us have done with a looney bike-lane scheme is ridiculous. There are concrete barriers, reducing Broad Street to two lanes of traffic, which I believe will impede downtown businesses ... (click for more)
