Music and Poetry of the Lower East Side

Wednesday, October 18 at 7 PM

Join us for an evening of jazz, spoken word and improvisational poetry with legendary jazz musicians GARY LUCAS and SHELLEY HIRSCH and impresario BOB HOLMAN. All three performers are pioneers of the Lower East Side poetry and jazz scene. At our Wine Cellar Cabaret, they evoke more than 100 years of avant-garde culture on the Lower East Side – from the wildly inventive stylings of the area’s early 20th-century wine cellars to the characters and atmosphere of the downtown scene of which they are a part.

The not-for-profit Eldridge Street Project was established to preserve the 1887 landmark Eldridge Street Synagogue, the first great house of worship built in America by East European Jews, as a center for historical reflection, aesthetic inspiration and spiritual renewal. Concerts, literary events, art installations, workshops for school children, and other cultural and educational programs at the site serve audiences of diverse ages and backgrounds.
