Now in its 13th year, the Washington Jewish Music Festival winds down with at least one concert of definite LGBT appeal tomorrow, Sunday, May 20, when Schmekel, a transgender Jewish "schtick-rock" band combining bawdy humor and critical awareness, takes the stage at Chief Ike's Mambo Room in Adams Morgan. The festival then concludes on Monday, May 21, with a screening at the DC JCC of the 1918 silent film The Yellow Ticket featuring original live music composed and performed for the festival by Alicia Svigals.
