The Jews Brothers' Bloomsday

Michael played Stephen Dedalus at this Bloomsday playreading.
The Thirsty Dog, Auckland, New Zealand, 16 June 2014

From the Jews Brothers Band website:  "'Bloomsday' is a sort of literary St Patrick's Day, a commemoration of the fictional day in
1904 in which James Joyce's comic masterpiece 'Ulysses' unfolds. On that long, lingering, legendary day Leopold Bloom, wandering
Jew and melancholic hero of the novel, sets about his droll odyssey around Dublin.  All around the world there are Bloomsday
celebrations and in Auckland for the past decade Bloomsday cabaret has unleashed itself in the red-light district of Karangahape Rd".
