I already told you that Rev. Billy and the entire choir are coming to perform this Thursday at REDCat. 8 p.m. show sold out quickly, so a 10 p.m. show was added. I have no idea if that's sold out yet, but tix are only $12, so go!
The show is part of their West Coast tour, but is also tied to some sort of grant award. The administrators launched a micro-site featuring all of this year's honorees, and the one featuring the CoLAS is pretty cool. Below, links to each section.
“I was arrested reciting the First Amendment in Union Square Park and understood I had no choice about my work anymore, that being an artist meant rising to the radical promise of the First Amendment itself. The Freedom there is our great Commons – and now I spend my time defending it, expanding it." - Bill Talen
