Matisyahu will once again host his Festival of Light Chanukah celebration at New York’s Webster Hall and Brooklyn, NY’s more intimate Music Hall of Williamsburg this December. Though Matis and his band will take off the two Fridays during the holiday period that fall on Shabbat, they will extend their celebration by a few days to bring their total number of gigs to eight. Each night will feature a different opening act, including Glitch Mob, RANA, Dub Trio, John Brown’s Body, Brothers Past, Kid Koala and Travis McCoy (Gym Class Heroes). The members of the Dub Trio are also part of Matisyahu’s backing band.

The singer is offering members of his fan club and his Twitter followers the option of buying tickets in advance. Fans should monitor his Twitter feed for details
