Emily Weber, promotions: EKOPLEKZ Dead Escalator Suite

Eve Peyser-Sappol, promotions: THE TEMPTATIONS Fiddler on the Roof Medley
I’ve been obsessed with this mix my dad’s friend, David Suisman (former WFMU DJ/history professor), gave him called “Black Sabbath,” which is a compilation of black musicians covering Jewish songs. Out of all the song on Black Sabbath, I think this one has the most ‘insane’ mix of sounds. To listen to more weird songs, listen to my radio show, Beer in my Bed, Thursdays noon-1pm on WOBC. xox, Eve

Amanda Mummery, outreach: AL STEWART In Brooklyn

Alex Tell, webmaster: ELIZABETH COTTEN Shake Sugaree

Sophie Kazis, news: X-RAY SPEX Germ Free Adolescents
