With sermons, songs and street spectacle, the San Francisco Stop Shopping tour will deliver sinners from the deepest American vice and wickedness: love of buying and accumulating unnecessary, sweatshop-produced goods.

"We've got to think outside the Big Box, children!" says Reverend Billy (a.k.a. Bill Talen). "We've got to bring this message of freedom back to our communities! We've got to bring it back into our homes and our hearts!"

The Rapture Interruptus Revival
April 26 - May 1 In Northern California

The fundamentalist plan – "The Rapture" – is now in progress. People are vanishing, yanked up into another world. These believers are disappearing into SUV's, idling between super malls. They believe, though, with the Playstations in their dashboards, that their Ford Expeditions are climbing straight up cliffs and jumping fjords and running with wolves. That's Heaven's final ad campaign: Consumers on pixilated interstates up Mount Everest. Those of us left behind will die in the Hell and rising Floods of the over-heating planet.

Children, welcome to the The Rapture Interruptus Revival - we shall hit the Rapture right where it hurts. We shall slam the Rapture into Reverse. We shall sing "Stop Shopping" between the consumer and the car – catching them in the Parking Lot Of No Return. We plan a new kind of performance art, a curving choreography designed for on-ramps. Exorcisms of Bad Traffic are now being taught in 24 hour all-night shifts at the Slow Consuming School of Divinity…

--WE RELY ON WORD OF MOUTH! PLEASE FORWARD TO FRIENDS AND FAMILY IN THE BAY AREA--
