A classically trained violinist since the age of three, Alicia grew up practicing Bach and sneaking out to Baltimore punk shows. She began touring at eighteen, then traveled to Jerusalem to immerse herself in the study of ancient languages and texts. For two years, she absorbed the stories and rituals of the Torah and Kabbalah. With Girls in Trouble, Brooklyn poet and multi-instrumentalist Alicia Jo Rabins mines dark stories of Biblical women, exploring the hidden places where their complicated lives overlap with her own. The result is an album of fully orchestrated songs, both intimate and wide-ranging, with upright bass, drums, accordion, and layered electric guitars. Tickets: General $10, OJM Members $5.
