John Cale croons in Tel Aviv Legendary rock musician John Cale and his band will be appearing in Tel Aviv twice next month - January 18th at the Zappa Club, and the next night at the Hangar. The multi-instrumentalist was a founding member, along with Lou Reed, of the Velvet Underground, the late Sixties group that drew the blueprint for every indie rock band from REM to Pavement. Cale, who has released 23 solo albums, including Paris 1919 and Vintage Violence, has also produced some rock classics for others, including Patti Smith's debut Horses and The Stooges. In the Nineties, he reunited with Reed for the highly acclaimed song cycle about Andy Warhol, "Songs for Drella". - David Brinn Missing heavy metal A work by renowned Israeli sculptor Yigal Tumarkin has been stolen by scrap-metal merchants amid an upsurge in the pilfering of metals in the Jewish state, police said yesterday. "It is really appalling. I don't know how they managed to dismantle and cart away 2.5 tons of steel," Tumarkin told Israel Radio. The massive installation had been erected near Kibbutz Hatzerim in Israel's southern Negev desert. - Jerusalem Post staff Ankri and Carlebach join forces Etti Ankri and Neshama Carlebach will usher out Hanukka and ring in the new year with a joint concert at the Jerusalem Theater's Rebecca Crown Hall on Saturday, December 31 at 8 p.m. The two singers share a mutual desire to raise both funds and awareness for child victims of terror being treated at the Alyn Hospital in Jerusalem. "These children really need our help," says Carlebach, who paid a visit to the hospital during her last trip to Israel in August. All proceeds from the concert's ticket sales will be donated to the children through the Operation Embrace organization, In addition to helping, Carlebach is looking forward to playing with Ankri. "I've always been a big fan of hers," she admits. Tickets to the show are US $36 (165 NIS). Special group rates, family rates and student discounts are available.
