Take a peek into the first hour of our all-night Shavuot celebration. One of Jazz composer and pianist Thelonious Monk’s most revered ballads, ‘Round Midnight was interpreted in spectacular style by Bay Area guitarist and composer John Schott and an all-star group of musicians in a continuous eight-hour exegesis, June 4, 2022 from 9:30 p.m. – 5:30 a.m. PT. The concert was performed live in San Francisco at Light Rail Studios and streamed online as the centerpiece of DAWN, a bold reimagining of the Jewish holiday of Shavuot by Reboot.

Sloane Crosley’s fifth book and second novel, Cult Classic, is a mysterious comedy, bringing metaphysics, modern love and mind control to New York City’s Lower East Side. Andrew Goldberg is a writer, producer and co-creator of Netflix’s Big Mouth, which teems with hormone monsters, pre-teen angst, and Bat Mitzvah drama. These two writers (who graduated high school together) can trace their origins to the suburbs of New York and many of their stories to their suburban Jewish upbringings. Join Reboot Ideas for a discussion of comedy, cultural irreverence and the ways in which personal identity creeps into public art. In Person at The Wyman Bar at Neuehouse Bradbury in Downtown Los Angeles June 29 at 8:00 p.m. Free admission, RSVP required. Sign up to get the recording or RSVP for the free live event here.
