Abrahamic Rockers: Punk Jews and the Bulletproof Stockings : The New Yorker

I just saw the excellent documentary Punk Jews, about… yup, you guessed it.

Highly recommended. It isn’t perfect—at times it feels like a series of really cool, short biopics rather than a coherent film—but a fun time was had.

If nothing else, you can learn about Hasidic oi!/hardcore bands and Yiddish guerilla street theatre. Apparently they actually are out there.
