Special Event with Baltimore COR: ROY ZIMMERMAN SINGS ?REAL AMERICAN? SONGS
Thursday, May 27 at 7 p.m.
Location: Baltimore Ethical Society
How do you fight recession, war, ignorance, greed and the scourge of Right Wing punditry? Why, with satire, of course.
Satirical songwriter Roy Zimmerman brings his one-man show "Roy
Zimmerman: Real American" to Baltimore.
Admission is $12 regular/$10 for students with ID.
?Real American? is 90 minutes of Zimmerman?s funny songs and comic commentary, a tuneful examination of the American political landscape in the era of Hope and Change. Health care, the economy, same-sex marriage, climate change, Creationism, guns, taxes, abstinence and, yes, Obama all come under satirical scrutiny. There?s a limba-like song about Rush Limbaugh. ?How low can you go?? Zimmerman sings. There's a decidedly Lefty slant to Roy's lyrics. The HBO documentary ?The Trials of Ted Haggard,? directed by Alexandra Pelosi features Roy?s song, ?Ted Haggard is Completely Heterosexual.? And his tune ?Buddy, Can You Spare a Trillion Dollars?? landed him a mention on the front page of the Wall Street Journal, an unaccustomed honor for a folkie. The Los Angeles Times says, ?Zimmerman displays a lacerating wit and keen awareness of society?s foibles that bring to mind a latter- day Tom Lehrer.?
