Win Tickets To The Coup @ Independent SF!
Obviously not afraid to show which side of the line in the sand he represents – as seen recently in his involvement with the Oakland Occupy movement – Oakland-raised Boots Riley has been an activist long before he staged The Coup. He’s also a poet, writer, and screenwriter. So, you shouldn’t be surprised that McSweeney’s picked up Riley’s screenplay, Sorry to Bother You, and featured it in McSweeney’s 48th issue and that he has well-known celebrities already signed up as the cast.
Check out this performance with Gabby La La on The Kinda Late Show:
Here’s your chance to catch some of The Coup’s righteous lyrics, delivered as radical party music, at the Independent. Friday, January 23rd.
