In Concert! Funny, Political Folkie Roy Zimmerman

What's so funny about ignorance, war, and greed? Lots! Roy Zimmerman’s original songs are a funny and forceful affirmation of Peace and Social Justice. Roy’s songs have been heard on HBO and Showtime, and his videos have garnered tens of millions of views. Joni Mitchell and Weird Al Yankovic have praised Roy Zimmerman's work. 

"Zimmerman displays a lacerating wit and keen awareness of society's foibles that bring to mind a latter-day Tom Lehrer." 
-- Los Angeles Times. 

"Without a doubt, Roy Zimmerman is among the most important political commentators of the last few decades, and in the end, it's the music that unites and disarms. With music this good and humor this insightful, there is good reason to be optimistic." 
-- No Depression Magazine. 

Roy Zimmerman has recorded for Warner/Reprise Records. He's shared stages with Bill Maher, Ellen DeGeneres, Holly Near, Robin Williams, Arlo Guthrie, John Oliver, Kate Clinton and George Carlin, and tours the country constantly with his wife and co-writer Melanie Harby.

Show begins 6:30pm at 7Sisters Brewing, 181 Tank Farm Rd. (at Long St., just north of Higuera), San Luis Obispo, (805) 868-7133. All ages OK. $15 cover; buy your tickets in advance and we'll save seats for you!
