From October 2008, Rev. Billy visited Sacramento, CA.
The Church of Stop Shopping is an activist performance group based in New York City, led by Reverend Billy, the stage name of Bill Talen. Using the form of a revival meeting, on sidewalks and in chain stores, Reverend Billy and his gospel choir exhort consumers to abandon the products of large corporations and mass media; the group also preaches a broader message of economic justice, environmental protection, and anti-militarism, protesting sweatshops and the Iraq War. Though it continues its street theatre activities, the Church has also appeared on stage and has toured internationally.
Also an excerpt from Destined for Destiny, the unauthorized autobiography of George W. Bush, which is about 24 minutes. Later from Grateful Dead, a short excerpt from "US Blues".
