KlezHop freak Socalled

Jesse Brown, a BoingBoing guest-blogger, is the host of TVO's Search Engine podcast.

Socalled AKA Josh Dolgin is an annoying, talented, annoyingly talented "buddy" of mine.

We used to make cartoons together but these days he's a big star on the European Klezmer circuit (!).

He fuses klezmer with hiphop, rediscovers aging novelty musicians and does stupid magic tricks. His live show is incredible.

I like this video of his better than his more successful one, but I'm usually difficult in that way. Enjoy!
