party I find it weird writing about events when there’s a war going on, even if the effect on Tel Aviv is seemingly minimal. People I know are off fighting, innocent people are dying and everyone is worried and stressed out. Still, I know that as long as we have the privilege of being able to go out, get drunk and forget about this whole mess for a few hours, I may as well point people in the right direction. So here’s a list of events that are meant to be happening in town this week. As always, don’t be surprised if they get cancelled or moved. Nobody really knows what’s going to happen in the next 5 minutes, let alone day or week.

***Tonight (Tuesday)***

The Tel Aviv Soul Club @ Radio EPGB – Soul, northern soul, rhythm & blues, 70s soul and more soul. From 22:00. Free.

***

Bella Barkan – original Jaffa blues/funk/rock trio play The Container in Jaffa. From 21:00. Free.

***

***Wednesday***

Stinky Russians @ Anna Loulou bar. I think it’s techno, but I’m not sure. Either way, a sane place to have a drink and forget everything.

***

***Thursday***

Tel Aviv dub station @ Gagarin – dub, roots, reggae. Rumours about Jamaican food and cookies! From 22:30. Tickets 50NIS.
