The Yiddish Princess (at Pete's Candy Store)

The Yiddish Princess, a newly-born quartet based here in Brooklyn, performs Yiddish ballads in the style of an 80s power rock band, complete with heavily reverbed vocals, soaring synths and screaming guitar solos. It's as campy as it sounds. But it works; I found myself buying into their schtick by the third song. And I swear, it's the singability of their music that will win your vote. Because though I may not understand what I'm singing, it feels so right to belt "Yah lai lai!" at the top of my lungs.

CONSUMED: Pete's Candy Store; 709 Lorimer St, Williamsburg (Brooklyn)
