On June 2, 2005, Reverend Billy and the Church of Stop Shopping, a world famous choir of anti-corporate-consumer-craze, made a special appearance at the Santa Cruz Guerilla Drive-In. Reverend Billy and the Church of Stop Shopping performed songs and skits under the Soquel Bridge prior to a screening of “Night of the Iguana.”
We sing, we dance, we preach, sometimes we perform small “retail interventions”, invisible plays, acts of ritual resistance. We exorcise cash registers and remythologize the retail environment, we illuminate the Devil. We make media and send it out around the world. We get hassled by security guards and sometimes get arrested.
