The Reverend Billy at the Park Slope Food Coop!
October 13 @ 7:00 pm| Free
In this time of the Earth’s crisis, what are we going to do to fight consumerism, militarism, and the advance of climate change? Take action NOW! Wordsprouts is proud to present Reverend Billy and the Stop Shopping Choir—an over 15-year-old New York City–based radical performance community—for a night of inspirational, motivational, and practical words and songs which will show you how to be an agent of positive change in the world.
They’ll be sharing work from The Earth Wants YOU (City Light Books), a motivational handbook for Earth activists, filled with inspired visions of a wild, creative, Earth-led cultural revolution. Reverend Billy and the Church of Stop Shopping offer up a heady mix of humor, insightful critique, passionate commitment, emotional catharsis, and example after example of vibrant direct action. They are, in the words of legendary musician Laurie Anderson, both “transcendent” and “down-to-Earth.” Come out and be inspired! Earthalujah!
You don’t have to be a member of the Food Coop to attend. The Food Coop is at 782 Union Street, Brooklyn.
