We're about to see a Progressive Arts Tragedy occur. But we can yet
I got a call yesterday for the New York NLG that Reverend Billy and the
Church of Stop Shopping will be HERE IN TOWN on Sunday 12/11, at
Sabathani (310 E 38th St, Minneapolis) from 2 PM - 3:30. They will be
here with Morgan Spurlock (Supersize Me) for both a fantastic show AND
a fantastic direct action thereafter of potentially legendary
proportions. The audience will be invited to participate but that's
all I'm at liberty to say at the moment.
However, there's a problem. I was on the phone with Billy Talen this
morning and found out that the person handling local publicity has
really botched. Very few people know that he's coming. It's
late-late-late, but I'm trying to help get the word out through the
best Progressive medium
- grass-roots word of mouth! (And yes, I've sent them off to KFAI and
other venues, which I CAN'T BELIEVE weren't told a thing...)
So, I would hope that all you folks would join the fun, with very
little effort, by -
- Spreading the word about the performance on your various email lists
and listservs, and
- Coming to the performance (they SO kick butt!!!) on Sunday afternoon
and considering joining what promises to be a terrific
anti-corporate/anti- consumerism demo (and yes, the Guild will be there
with observers) complete with chauffer service to the location from
This could be the most fun holiday event this year, so I do hope that
you can make it and that you let others know! I will try to get more
and better info out to more folks later. Their website is
A great place to live, work, learn, create and play.
