Brief Event Description: 
INDOORS IS SOLD OUT! TICKETS NO LONGER AVAILABLE ONLINE. Reverend Billy C. Wirtz is a comic genius, gifted pianist and American musicologist who defies easy classification. Playing his own brand of Americana "Rock-a-Billy Blues," Ronny 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 Tampa's WMNF (88.5FM) presenting the music that led to Elvis and beyond..... http://revbillycwirtz.com/ for the low down on the Rev.'s credentials, Look up Ronny on Facebook, his blog/wall is a good read.

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.
