Klezmer Band Golem to Appear on ‘Louie’

The group will perform on tonight’s episode of comedian Louis C.K.’s show

Golem. (Pascal Perich)

With a recurring role for David Lynch in the final episodes of last season’s Louie, it was hard to imagine how the show could top the cult-level star-studdedness it has come, among other things, to be known and loved for. But that’s partly why we adore Louie C.K., the genius behind the program—he’s able to corral the talent necessary to execute the compelling narrative twists that keep us addicted.

This season has maintained the high level of off-beat excellence, thanks in part to the likes of Charles Grodin, Ellen Burstyn and Eszter Balint. But C.K. doesn’t just doff his cap at members of Actors Equity, as viewers who are also Vox Tablet listeners will learn tonight, when the klezmer punk band Golem makes an appearance as itself. If you don’t know Golem, tonight you’ll get a sense of their infectious, raucous music. Golem members Annette Ezekiel Kogan and Jeremy Brown joined me last month to talk about Tanz, their most recent album.
