Audiences of all ages and hair styles have thrilled to the post-corporate comic stylings of satirical songster Dave Lippman.
The 99% troubadour (he’s not yet complete) and investigative songwriter afflicts the complacent, takes the air out of the windbags of the week, de-distorts history, and updates worn-out songs with parody and thrust. Sample tunes: All We Are Saying is End Corporate Crime, I Hate Wal-Mart, Alberta Tarbillies, Brother Can You Spare a Diamond, Sgt. Pepper Spray…
Specializing in passionate, comedic original songs and unsingable singalongs set to familiar tunes, he presents a swirl of multimedia images so no one will bother watching him grow older onstage. It’s a multi-media romp through recent generations of social justice activism, told through stories of glories, near-wins, and windmills tilted at. Remember the hard times, fight for the better ones – in harmony!
