Event Description:

Sep 11 ~ Roy Zimmerman Fundraiser for KPFT & Houston Social Forum (HSF) (Sun) Proceeds will benefit both KPFT and HSF which PAA is helping to organize. At the Aurora Picture Show 800 Aurora, just off N. Main and south of the north 610 loop in Houston. Roy is a political satirist, songwriter, and performer. If Gandhi had played guitar, grown hair and sung at the top of his lungs, he still wouldn't have had Roy Zimmerman's wicked sense of musical satire. On the other hand, Roy Zimmerman has never liberated a nation from a tyrannical oppressor. He's working on it though, one song at a time. Roy sings a compelling combination of socially conscious comedy and original music. It's Lenny Bruce meets Stephen Sondheim meets Phil Ochs in Brian Wilson's living room. 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." Tickets: $20 at the door, $16 in advance, $10 students. More info on Roy & his songs / 9-11 Fundraiser Flyer / HSF info page
