Singing CIA Agent in NY

August 30, 2007 am31 7:47 am

This came in my mail. I wish I could attend (for Shrub; I don’t know the magazine), but I am likely out of town.

Friends, please note George Shrub’s (brief) appearance this coming Sunday at the Brecht Forum:

Sunday September 2 New York City – “Milk Shakes & Ice Cream Party III” – benefit for Left Turn Magazine – Brecht Forum – 451 West Street, bet Bank & Bethune – by the West Side Highway between 11th & 12th Sts – jumping off at 7pm; open bar w/ drinks&shakes all night! – performances start at 8 – * Mahina Movement * Spiritchild of Mental Notes * Singing CIA Agent George Shrub – $10 donation, $20 all you can drink & free milkshakes all night long

Satirical songster Dave Lippman puts on sunglasses and is instantly George Shrub, the singing agent from the Committee to Intervene Anywhere (CIA). Here’s his website. Here’s something I posted about him. And here’s 2 photos (as himself, and as Shrub) and some lyrics:

in concert

George Shrub / Columbus(The Times They Are A-Changin)
Come gather round people wherever you advertise
And admit that the sixties sells Chryslers and fries
And accept it that money don’t talk, it just lies
If your bottom line is worth savin
Then you better start skimmin all the anthems we’ve known
For the stocks, they are exchangin

So, yeah, if you have time, think about it. If memory serves me right, it should be a lot of fun. And I still my weasel may way out of my prior engagement…
