Tel Aviv event listings 2-8/8/15


Get ready for another week full of action all over town. Lots of different things to do this week, from music to festivals and even some activism thrown in for extra credit.





Blues and Booz @ Pasaz from 21:30 – free. A weekly night of live music followed by an open blues jam.



The Jamshid Sisters live @ Bar Kayma from 21:00 –

Beautiful indie pop/folk from these talented ladies. Free.

Watch them here



The annual Animix festival of cartoons, animation and comics returns to the Cinematheque for four days of workshops, exhibitions and screenings. Many of the screenings and some of the workshops are suitable for non-Hebrew speakers, but alas, the festival’s crap website is, once again, only in Hebrew. You can visit it anyway, though. International animation shorts will be shown on Friday and Saturday (though some might not be in English, so it’s worth checking with the Cinematheque).


Sukat Halal screening – Acid Moon and Botnik live @ Gagarin from 20:00 – A screening of what appears to be a music documentary about the Sukat Halal psychedelic rock festival, followed by two live acts in the same style. Free.



Yad2 Market @ Charles Clore Park from 18:00 –

A 2 day event combining a 2nd hand market with a bunch of (mainstream) performances and children’s activities.  Selling is by arrangement with organisers and all places are sold out, but it’s free to attend and shop. Hours are 18:00 – 23:00.

Visit the (Hebrew) website


Beats Antique live @ The Block from 21:00 – San Francisco based tribal fusion act brings its full circusy stage show to headline a lineup full of great local acts. On stage: Echo & Tito, Light Child Project, Kur D and FyaKeepah. House & techno in the Squat room. Tickets 150NIS from here.



Positive Festival opens in Jaffa – A 2 day festival of salon gigs and events in unusual and welcoming spaces around Jaffa. Some events free (they pass a hat for donations) and for some you pay in advance. Dance shows, music, cooking workshops, all kinds of random things. Full info is on their Facebook event page, but a lot of the info is in Hebrew so get an Israeli friend to help (or Google). Sign up in advance if you want to guarantee a place.
