Reverend Billy & The Stop Shopping Gospel Choir
Tickets $12
Concert starts @ 1:00PM, Doors open @ 12:00PM

A strange faith is brewing for these apocalyptic times. Post-fundamentalist and happy-crazy with a 35-voice choir and worshippers throughout the world, The Church of Earthalujah began in New York City in 2009. The church has cast the global warming devils from the cash machines of JP Morgan Chase and UBS – the Swiss bank that invests in the Koch brothers and climate change skepticism. These churchgoers believe that natural disasters are messages from a living thing and that we should be teaching each other to listen and pray. Earthalujah!

Ladies Battle! is a dance battle hosted by the annual Ladies of Hip-Hop Festival (LofHHF). The mission of LofHHF is to develop and provide women and girls with positive roles that are present and represented within the hip-hop culture. Traditionally, men have dominated all facets of the hip-hop scene, but this festival changes that tradition and puts women center-stage for the entire event. Each year an elite group of female artists from around the world are selected to exhibit work, teach, and perform as part of the festival. Through education, performance, and community exchanges, this annual hip-hop festival focuses on women and their relationship with hip-hop culture.
