From JEW TUNES at Jweekly.com:
Let’s get this out of the way – yes, this is a Jewish music blog and yes the event that will be discussed in this entry is a nondenominational party at a classic Episcopalian church.
But how often do we Jews really get to hang out in a traditional Christian space without the urge to explain our presence? Let alone shimmy with friends to Michael Jackson and drink decidedly non-Christian alcoholic beverages inside a sanctuary’s walls?
I simply cannot ignore the glory that is EPISCODISCO. The monthly event’s year anniversary party takes place 7-10 p.m. April 17 at Grace Cathedral in San Francisco.
The upcoming EpiscoDisco will include a live performance by dark folk songstress Emily Jane White and a screening of short film “Holy Water.” The film juxtaposes images of Michael Jackson idolatry (alters full of Jackson photos and RIP messages following his untimely death last summer) with raging waterfalls.
Did I mention the whole shebang is free? Because it is.
To me EpiscoDisco feels like a rare treat, to enjoy the glory of classic San Francisco architecture without having to provide any context for my visit. I just want to dance!
So go my Jewish brethren, party like a gentile and see how the other side lives.
Are we simply the best?
Yes we are (sometimes).
