Reverend Billy & the Life After Shopping Gospel Choir
Now ten years into his act, William Talen is a convincing performer; he embodies his religious garb so realistically, you'd be forgiven for not knowing that he isn't ordained. His crusade against consumerism has taken him across the country and the world, leading to arrests over his stances against Disney, Starbucks, and other huge corporations. As opposed to his street performances, the confines of a club make for a setting of less dramatic action, but his spirit will move you nonetheless.
