Buzz-making US indie rocker Ezra Furman will be making his Israel debut with his band on June 21 at the Barby Club in Tel Aviv and the next night at the Mizkaka in Jerusalem.

The 29-year-old Chicagoan is a bisexual, cross-dressing, observant Jew with an affinity for The Velvet Underground, classic R&B and a persona akin to an even mopier Jonathan Richman.

Writing and singing openly about his faith, sexuality and emotions, Furman has been described as the restless sound of a genuine one-off in a generic world. His latest album, Perpetual Motion People, was described by Pitchfork as “a playful, hefty romp through folk, blues, and plain old rock’n’roll.”
