(Keep on) Rockin' in the Free World
July 12, Neve Yosef Community Center, Haifa. MidLife Crisis performs Neil Young's socially relevant 'Rockin' in the Free World' at a the Neve Yosef community theater festival. Filmed by ML.
It took over three hours navigating traffic jams to get to Haifa in Danny B's 'band van' and when we arrived at the prestigious "back balcony" stage, the audience consisted of roughly 3 little girls and a savta . But MLC will never pass up a gig, no matter how small (as long as we're all free that day and preferably if there's a drum set). After a few numbers, more people dropped in. A few started dancing. For once we had monitors and could hear ourselves. Threatened with only a short 45 minutes, our set extended to over an hour and a good rockin time was had by all. We've been promised the "front balcony" next year. At last, the big time!
