Late Nite Show: April 6th 10:00pm
Gospel Concert: April 7th 7:30pm
Earthalujah! The world-traveling radical performers, Reverend Billy and the Stop Shopping Choir are coming to New Orleans, just in time for festival season.
Recently sharing stages with Pussy Riot, Yothu Yindi, Joan Baez and Neil Young, the award-winning and often arrested activist-entertainers will host a late-night party-show at Southern Rep at 10 PM Saturday April 6th.
Then, on Sunday April 7 at 7:30 PM also at Southern Rep the troupe will stage their gospel concert for the Earth. Part political rally, part comedy show about an Elvis-impersonator televangelist and his choir, part church service of the Earth faith: whatever the Church of Stop Shopping is – it’s a movement to rise to the occasion of the Earth’s crisis. As activists, they have faced down Monsanto and Bayer, climate-change financiers like Chase Bank and UBS, and mountaintop removal coal-mining and pipe-lines.
The Director is Savitri D. The Music Director is Nehemiah Luckett. Reverend Billy is Bill Talen.
