Lost In Translation — Album Launch Party + Talkback with Omar Offendum & Thanks Joey
Free with RSVP; $10 suggested donation
AANM is excited to host the launch party for new album Lost In Translation by Omar Offendum and Thanks Joey — tune in and jam out with us to live performance of the album by Omar and Joey + talkback hosted by Arij Mikati!
Journey through the Syrian-Pacific with your own personal dragoman Omar Offendum, along with his partner-in-thyme Thanks Joey. This Shamreeki sonic saga is equal parts nostalgic and futuristic. Featuring samples from some iconic Syrian films, and a dizzying dose of Damascene bilingualism, Lost In Translation is a celebratory love-letter to this very merry and hairy Arabian way of life in the California Califate of Los Shamgeles.
Lyrics by Omar Offendum | Music by Thanks Joey
