If you braved downtown’s wet-mess of sidewalk-sludge last night to see Zusha, you heard the echoing chant of five-hundred souls packed like sardines into Bowery Ballroom.

Zusha, a “neo-hassidic” band of close-friends, played a spirited show to a sold out room of music lovers, many of whom arrived in costume to celebrate the Jewish festival of Purim.

Enjoy this photo gallery of Zusha and surprise-guest Matisyahu, and of equal importance, their fan’s celebration of Purim.
