Although I’m a Jerusalem native, I wasn’t familiar with Mercedes Band – one of the in-bred local bands – until I saw the brilliant Israeli TV drama “Do me!” (תעשה לי ילד) starred by the band. Tough the music’s not really my style, one thing you can say for sure about these guys and that they have special style – they just don’t seem to give a f3#k, so they go wild, banging all over the place, with somewhat strange pseudo-modern everyday texts about the most ordinary of things. Some might call it “fun”, I call it “worth seeing atleast once”. So, I went to one of their performances in Jerusalem during my last visit to Israel.
(if you haven’t already, check out another concert I saw at Tower of David at Jerusalem’s old city – Asaf Avidan and the Mojos)
Here are some photos I took at the live concert, with a couple of videos following below.
Some of my video captures… you gotta love this guy…
