Rev. Billy C. Wirtz and Ronnie Elliott

Mon, 03/28/2016 - 5:18pm -- Arlene

Saturday, May 14, 2016 - 8:00pm

Tickets $10 adv/$12 door

Free or Fee: 
$10 advance $12 door
Brief Event Description: 
Reverend Billy C. Wirtz is a comic genius, gifted pianist and American musicologist who defies easy classification. Ronnie Elliott has been called "a cult artist in the best sense of the word". Both are singer-songwriters, raconteurs and rock ’n’ roll historians but while Rev. Billy C. Wirtz pounds the keyboard and specializes in humorous ditties, Ronny Elliott strums the guitar and mostly delivers tales of a more somber tone. In other words, the two men are a perfect match. Every Friday they can be heard from 3-5 p.m. on WMNF (88.5) presenting the music that led to Elvis and the rest as well as their own singular records.

Brief Event Description: 
FILM SCREENING: BUDRUS. Sunday, May 15, 6pm Budrus is an award-winning feature documentary film about Palestinian community organizer, Ayed Morrar, who unites Palestinian political factions and invites Israeli supporters to join an unarmed movement to save his village of Budrus from destruction by Israel’s Separation Barrier. While this film is about one Palestinian village, it tells a much bigger story about what is possible in the Middle East. Ayed succeeded in doing what many people believe to be impossible: he united feuding Palestinian political groups, including Fatah and Hamas; he brought women to the heart of the struggle by encouraging his daughter Iltezam's leadership; and welcoming hundreds of Israelis to cross into Palestinian territory for the first time and join this nonviolent effort.
