Art-pop Songstress 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
Campy Holiday Event Returns on 12/22, 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)
Art-pop songstress 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.
Her post-Hanukah-pre-Christmas musical hijinks will feature Sage’s quirky theatricality at its best – an upbeat evening of vaudevillian shtick, playful Yiddishkeit, tall tales, wacky props, pianistic flair and hilarious, written-on-the-spot, topical compositions. The New York Times perhaps put it best, when they described Sage’s earlier incarnation of this show as "Alternately channeling her inner Fanny Brice and Jewish Norah Jones." Other featured preview coverage for Sage’s inaugural Holiday event in 2009 included Time Out NY, NY Daily News, New York Magazine and more.
Sage promises to “weave songs from her ten-album discography with shpiel about her life as a former ballerina, adventures on the road, and her family’s extensive menorah collection.” On 12/22, she will share the stage with some of her talented New York neighbors, including cellist Dave Eggar and trumpet player Russ Johnson. Additional Special Guests will be announced in the weeks ahead. As mentioned above, all net proceeds from this performance will benefit Hurricane Sandy Relief, with details tba. A native downtown New Yorker, Sage was impacted by the Hurricane but realizes she was more fortunate than many: “I was without power and heat for five days and really had nowhere else to go so I just stuck it out. By day three it was definitely getting colder…How lucky though to only have had such a minor inconvenience...I know many people who were really hit so hard by all of it -- in Red Hook and NJ and Battery Park…and elsewhere.”
