Michelle Shocked Stages Public Protest

Earlier this month a number of venues cancelled Michelle Shocked’s upcoming shows after she allegedy issued a homophobic rant at Yoshi’s in San Francisco. Shocked has stated that she was misinterpreted, with the audio from that night available below. Yesterday she showed up outside Moe’s Alley in Santa Cruz, CA staging a bit of performance art/protest, appearing covered in white, with a piece of tape across her mouth with the words “Silenced By Fear” written upon it, surrounded by a series of signs that lauded her right to free speech.
