Adam Sandler still won’t let them perform his song, but, for this one night only, the Jewish punk pranksters from Yidcore are reforming.

Since 1998, Yidcore’s Bram Presser, Myki Slonim, Rory Kelaart and Dave Jesudason have tapped into the playful and rebellious spirit of Jewish punk in their covers of Israeli songs, ironic original compositions and hummus-soaked live shows.

Their FOJAM show marks Yidcore’s first time back on stage since their infamous 2011 reunion at the Arthouse – but it’s unknown if their mascot, a long-suffering rubber chicken, will get a pass-out from its new home as part of the Jewish Museum of Australia’s permanent collection for the night.

As their spiritual siblings the Ramones (never) said: “Oy! Vey! Let’s Eat!”
