As a benefit for Hurricane Sandy Relief
Rachael Sage brings her campy, inspiring ‘Tchatchkes & Latkes!’ back to Joe’s Pub in NYC for a December 22nd Holiday event, as a Benefit for Hurricane Sandy Relief.
Deftly balancing Catskills’ shtick with indie rocker musicality, Rachael Sage’s ‘Tchatchkes & Latkes!’ sees the art-pop songstress "alternately channeling her inner Fanny Brice and Jewish Norah Jones" (The New York Times). On 12/22, she will share the stage with some of her talented New York neighbors, including cellist Dave Eggar (Coldplay) and trumpet player Russ Johnson (Elvis Costello).
All net proceeds from this performance will benefit Hurricane Sandy Relief, through The Red Hook Initiative, Project Hospitality Staten Island and Graybeards in The Rockaways.
