SF Mime Troupe

From Whitney:


Yesterday, Sept. 24, the Santa Cruz Trash Orchestra raised a rebellious ruckus and marched down Pacific Avenue (permits? We don't need no stinking permits!) to announce the performance of the San Francisco Mime Troupe in San Lo Park.

It was a BLAST! As we marched, people joined us from the sidewalks and we handed them trash to play. We had a lot of fun doing variations of marching like twirls and scattering. Grant Wilson, from Art and Revolution, acted as our drum major and marched ahead of us - he is always so much fun. At one point, a bike cop asked if we could make way for traffic and we complied. When we got to the park, we played 3 songs.

The SF Mime Troupe put on a really great show called "Making a Killing" - political satire at it's best. They have look-a-likes for Dick Cheney and Condi Rice... doing evil deeds in the name of charity and "a feel good story". The Mime Troupe was especially good this year.

Sounds very cool. Another reason I wish I was living in Santa Cruz! I just moved to CA from MA a few months ago, with the intention of moving to SC. I'm an artist and a "progressive" (I have to be careful what i reveal online!), but my art does not reflect my politics. My writing sometimes does, but... I love what you are doing, and will check in from time to time. Are you on Twitter? FaceBook? Feel free to check out my blog @ pauljimerson.blogspot.com.
