New York City
In your face with amazing grace!
The Church Ladies for Choice, the USO of clinic defense, return to the Peoples’ Voice Café. Experience pro-choice “hers” (not hymns) with New York’s own cheerleaders for choice, as well as tales from the group’s sordid history. Songs include perennial favorites such as “God Is a Lesbian,” “This Womb Is My Womb,” and “Psycho Christians.” Also on the bill are Rick & Andy (Rick Libert and Andy Buck), a gay singing duo who perform folk, acoustic, and original music.
The Church Ladies for Choice is a fabulous group of men and women who believe in political activism with a sense of humor. Founded in 1991, the group addresses such issues as abortion rights, AIDS education, and homophobia. You will know them by their sensible shoes, polyester print dresses, and earrings that pinch. That’s what keeps them so angry.
Rick Libert and Andy Buck began singing together in Rick’s basement after discovering an old Weavers album. Since 1995, they have performed as Rick & Andy at the Baggot Inn, Dixon Place, Back Fence, Sun Music Company, Rose’s Turn, and many other venues. They have been featured on Oscar Brand’s long-running WNYC radio program “Folk Song Festival” and — for Manhattan cable television — Joel Landy’s “Songs of Freedom” and Andy Humm and Ann Northrop’s “Gay USA.” Onstage, they have been guests in Jeff Weiss’s Obie-winning serial musical “Hot Keys.”
