Free Concert in Berkeley, donations and CD sales to benefit A.C.T.

A musical fantasy set in 2014 after the aborted elections of 2004.

See the show that has inspired people in New York, California, Nevada, New Hampshire, Vermont, Virginia, Missouri, and Colorado. Laramie Crocker's "U.S. Provisional Authority" is wickedly funny, ominous, prescient, beautiful, and moving. This is your
last chance to see the show before the election.

Patricia and Daniel Ellsberg call Laramie Crocker "The Musical Michael Moore .... the Tom Lehrer of these times."

Singer/Songwriter/Guitarist Laramie Crocker teams up with Bay Area artists to bring an evening of music to his hometown of Berkeley: world-class concert pianist/improvisator (and mother) Joy Crocker, percussionist Randal Mitros, and bassist Michael
Olivola.

The original songs are the center of the show. Danceable, beautiful, poignant, inspiring, and funny, you'll go home humming the tunes. Tunes like "Club Fed" (it's the place to hide when the world thinks you're dead), and "Yes, Mr. Cheney", in which
Dubya's White House is cast as "The D.C. Hillbillies", and the whimsical "All My WMDs" bring laughter to the belly. Songs like "Cargo" in which a fallen soldier describes "the long ride home", and "Bombing for Peace" run straight to the heart. The show
ends with the inspiring "Big Green Lady", a love song to the Statue of Liberty, and the defiant "I Want My Country Back".

The songs and lyrics can all be found on the website for the show:
