Atheist Coalition of San Diego Monthly May Meeting

The Atheist Coalition has asked us to cross promote their monthly meeting:

This Thursday, May 16 at 5:45, we will be hosting a concert presented by one of the world's leading jazz saxophonists, Gilad Atzmon. His album, Exile, was named the BBC Jazz Album of the Year in 2003.

Gilad was born in Israel and fought in Lebanon in 1982. He was so disgruntled with Israeli tactics that he began writing about the state of Jews in regards to Israel. He lives in London today and is not allowed in Israel because of his writing. His concerts are on the theme of exile and he plays for a few minutes, then narrates and continues playing.

This is probably the most profound event the Atheist Coalition has ever put on. Gilad is well-known throughout the world for both his music and his writing. He also plays with the Blockheads, a British rock group that had several hits in the 1970s and 1980s as Ian Drury and the Blockheads. Ian died in 1998, but the group still tours.

    Well... That was way different than I expected. And for anyone who attended let me be the first to apologize for being one of those LGBT thugs that stole the progressive movement. My thought on the speaker: less talky more play-ee

    Well, people with controversial opinions may be interesting to listen to-but i think that their invitation to Atzmon is more about the music.

    Gilad Atzmon may be the finest jazz saxophonist of whom I'd never heard until just now, just as Ezra Pound was a fine poet, but Atzmon's views on Judaism and on Jews in general are practically indistinguishable from those of Joseph Goebbels.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
