Combining the slinky charm of cabaret with politically conscious activism in the spirit of election season, The Citizens Band (with performers Karen Elson, Angela McCluskey, Ian Buchanan, Sarah Sophie Flicker, Rain Phoenix, and more) enlightens and entertains with glittery decadence and songs that urge people to care about the state of the country. The group's freewheeling romps—which come decked out with feathered boas, high-flying trapeze artists, and scantily clad dancers—have garnered praise from the New York Times, which lauded the act’s “darkly theatrical seduction." In their October performances, the group spins songs from their recent anti-apathy, pro-democracy album Grab a Root and Growl, which includes the jaunty ragtime satire "The Debt Rattle," the campy, vaudeville-flavored "Gasoline," and a cover of the show-tune send-up "Fare Ye Well, Bad Congressman." A slate of special guests will drop in to spice up the proceedings, with such notable interlopers as Julia Stiles, Arrested Development star Alia Shawkat, singer-musician Joe Sumner, and singer Ren Harvieu.The shows are co-sponsored by Press Here Productions and MoveOn.org, a political action committee powered by 7 million Americans.
