King and Queen pub , 1 Foley St W1
19:30 discussion and a concert
19th of January 2012. We will be playing at the King and Queen pub , 1 Foley St w1 . near to the bt/post office tower .GILAD ATZMON on saxophone , sean khan alto saxophone and mike edmonds on double bass, drums tba . 5 quid entry , 4 quid concessions . 8pm kick off . near to Goodge Street or Warren Street Tube . We had the great Jim Mullen last month at this intimate venue, and he was sensational. When ever Gilad plays something special always happens.
As an interesting addition Gilad will be having a debate before the gig (this is free),at 7.30pm, at the venue with MARK MOFFET (political activist, scientist and musician) with respect to Gilad's new book 'The Wandering Who', Mark has a number of interesting points which he feels need to be examined. This book has caused much controversy both here and the USA. In the book Gilad examines Jewish identity politics and its impact on both the Middle East (especially Palestine) and the West. The debate will be an attempt to examine both the pros and cons of the book in an impartial way and I would like to invite anyone interested in this to take part in the open debate, after the formal debate between Gilad and Mark. I must stress that anyone who is opposed to Gilad's views is very welcome and its important to 'grill' Gilad on any points raised in his book; I have spoken to Gilad about this and he wants an open debate so please take this opportunity.
