Satirical songster Dave Lippman returns to San Francisco with the world's only known singing CIA agent, George Shrub, in hot pursuit. Current victims of his parody and thrust include faith-based torture futures, free-market climate change, Sport Futility Vehicles, the Axis of Pretty Bad, and of course Wal-Mart. Get ready for high-end pop rewrites and some very wise cracks.

Hosted by the bi-locational Jim Haber, this benefits Nevada Desert Experience (Jim's new gig), organizing interfaith resistance to nuclear weapons & war. Watch as Jim flies around El Rio's courtyard, greets you, feeds you and even introduces Lippman and Shrub. From Sin City to the City by the Bay, Jim's got you covered.

Lippman's songs, released on numerous albums over the last 20 years, bear such bucolic and transcendent titles as "I Hate Walmart" "The Stocks They Are Exchangin'," "The Twelve Days of Bushmas," and "Battle Him in Public." His CDs receive airplay on anticommercial radio throughout the country.

"Lippman is a national treasure" - L.A. Herald-Examiner
"Viciously funny" - Guardian (England)
"One of my favorite political satirists. This is a very funny man." - Erich Lee Preminger
"The Dean felt that more harm than good would come from your visit" - student, Skidmore College, New York
"God, that man can talk! What a great writer!" - Utah Phillips
