The Church of Stop Shopping, featuring Reverend Billy and the Stop Big Boxes Gospel Choir, will sing and preach from LA to Humboldt County, April 17 to 24th, performing for citizens, activist groups and union locals resisting the predatory influx of transnational chain stores.  

Reverend Billy and the Choir will kick off the tour with an appearance at a Los Angeles screening of the documentary "Reverend Billy and the Church of Stop Shopping" (Playloud! Productions). The audience has the opportunity for Q&A about adventures in crucifying Mickey Mouse while saving New York City public landmarks. Then, on Sunday April 18th at 6pm, Reverend Billy and the Choir will create a "Strange Worship" at the State Playhouse where they will exorcise credit cards and preach the Stop Shopping Gospel.

Save your soul at Laemmle's Fairfax 3 Theater: 7907 Beverly Blvd. Los Angeles, CA 90048 on April 17th at 10:00pm

Cal State Los Angeles' State Playhouse Theater:  5151 State University Drive Los Angeles, CA  90032 April 18th at 6:00pm

The week-long tour will include performances in theaters, along with "retail interventions" –unannounced, unpermitted appearances in "contested space" like Supercenter lobbies, sweatshop dressing rooms and strip mall parking lots. In its seven year existence, the OBIE-winning Church of Stop Shopping has fought Starbucks, Disney, Wal-Mart (to name a few) while promoting independent businesses and gift, thrift and barter economies; encouraging the survival of our neighborhoods and giving a voice to countless sweatshop workers worldwide.

"Reverend Billy is the most pointed, courageous political theater in New York."    ----The New York Times
"The collar is fake but the calling is real."    -----The Village Voice
"A great preacher."   ---- Mother Jones
