We just got word that the great singer-songwriter, Roy Zimmerman, will be making a stop in Pittsburgh this weekend. You will not find a more poignant and relevant satirist today in America. His songs harken back to Tom Lehrer from a previous generation and represent some of the best in musical satire today, including songs like
- Defenders of Marriage (“Defending the institution against people who want to get married”),
- Religious Freedom (“I’m free to practice my religion, and you’re free to practice mine”).
- A powerful anti-gun song: To the Victims We Send Our Thoughts and Prayers.
Roy has played for numerous secular-minded audiences across the country – most recently at the American Humanist Association (AHA) national convention in Las Vegas and the Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF) national convention, as well as the recent PAStAHCon in Philadelphia.
To get a glimpse, check out the video link to Religious Freedom (To Burn Our Own Witches).
The concert will be Sunday, September 16 @ 7 pm at First Unitarian Church, 605 Morewood Ave on the corner of Melwood and Ellsworth Avenue in Shadyside. The cost is “$20 or pay what you can”.
At any price, it will be show not to miss.
