Reverend Billy & RMO | NYC @ Union Square | Nov 28 2008

For an indexed overview of all un:ART:ig recordings please refer to unartignyc.com Buy Nothing Day Join the Rude Mechanical Orchestra and Reverend Billy and the Church of Stop Shopping on the day after Thanksgiving to celebrate Buy Nothing Day, a response to the overconsumerism promoted by the retail industry of Black Friday. Liberate your inner shopaholic from the excesses of holiday consumption and come boogie down instead. The day after Thanksgiving is the biggest shopping day of the year to some, but since 1997 it’s also Buy Nothing Day, a chance to escape the packed malls and aggressive advertising. So give your credit card a rest and put your rhythm to work by joining Reverend Billy and the Church of Stop Shopping for a free dance party at Union Square. Receive a special blessing (or exorcism) from the Rev for a Debt-Free Christmas. Music makers and holiday costumes encouraged, all ages welcome. On Saturday you’ll be singing Last Night a DJ Saved My Mortgage. Union Square Broadway and 14th Street, Manhattan 3p; $ free rudemechanicalorchestra.org
