Reverend Billy


A New York City based Earth-defending performance community, Earthalujah! The Church of Stop Shopping has has 50 performing members and a congregation in the thousands. We resist extinction, but bring humor and music to the end of the world. And, we do get arrested a lot. For instance, we believe that Monsanto chemists should experience our singing and preaching - where they work.

We perform cash register exorcisms, retail interventions, and inside-the-corporation cell phone operas and weddings. We baptize babies into "a life beyond shopping." Outdoors, we have performed to tree-sitters in stands of redwoods, sung between cars in traffic jams at the entrance to the Holland Tunnel, and held forth on the roof of Carnegie Hall in a snowstorm.
