Tradition! Tradition! Alisa Solomon, a professor at the Graduate School of Journalism, has written a book about a musical that was so wildly successful, it became a tradition all its own. Wonder of Wonders: A Cultural History of Fiddler on the Roofexamines far more than the 1964 Broadway juggernaut whose songs have been enjoyed by millions of Jews and non Jews alike and has had countless productions mounted in every corner of the globe, from high school auditoriums to the Alhambra theater in Jaffa, Israel. Solomon shows how a musical set in a Jewish village in czarist Russia at the turn of the 20th century raises universal questions about tradition versus modernity, generational conflict and a community buffeted by change.

It’s a curious pairing, this marriage of inertia and propulsion. But the band, with Bradley Fry on guitar, Randy Huth on bass and Sean McGuinness on drums, makes it feel stupidly obvious. “King of Jeans” is about coming to terms with maturity, or maybe just stumbling halfway out of immaturity, and its raging energies say something about the power of denial.
It is important to have some form of eye protection against the sun’s bright rays. However, transition lenses can cost from $25 to $100 more, added on to the price of your new glasses. The lenses also take about five minutes to transition from dark to light, so entering a dark building after being outside makes it difficult to see.
Conjuring punk funk scree with a distorted banjo, convulsive rhythm section, and staticky thudding synths, this Queens hardcore trio occasionally creates a springy backdrop, if not breakbeat, from which actual rhythmic lyrics could be projected. And here, they welcome a trio of volcanically voluble vocalists. Alexandra Drewchin, warbles a post freak folk incantation, which is really just a breather before Camae Ayewa, the Philadelphia activist and one woman Afrofuturist sensory overload who performs as Moor Mother, escalates the conflagration.
