New Video from the Groggers!

I know I've foisted the Groggers on y'all plenty already, but it's my blog, so you have to indulge me sometimes. Power pop is my favorite genre of music, so I can't resist anything combining that with Jewish pop culture humor.

The Groggers released their latest video yesterday, Upper West Side Story. The Upper West Side in New York City is a well-known modern orthodox singles community, though often characterized as being "left-wing modern orthodox." As a single young professional in my late 20s, I am the key demographic of the UWS, but that's not where I live. Hashkafically, it wasn't a good fit.

However, this video is hilarious. It's funny 'cause it's true!

Tonight, the Groggers are having a CD release party for their first album, There's No I in Cherem. (Cherem is the punishment of being cut off from the Jewish people - think of excommunication.) Come party with me and the Groggers at the Delancey, 168 Delancey Street, New York, New York from 9pm-midnight today, Wednesday, Sept 7, 2011. Concert seems to be at 10pm. $7 at the door, $3 drink specials. For more information, check out the Facebook event.

(And you can already buy the album on iTunes or CD Baby.)
