See Zimmermans Wake Up Call performance Saturday

Nationally known satirical songwriter Roy Zimmerman will perform Saturday at 7 p.m. in Atkinson Memorial Church, 710 Sixth St. in Oregon City.

In his “Wake Up Call” performance he presents hilarious, rhyme-intensive original songs that are also incisive calls to action, smart, savvy and undeniable. Tickets to the concert are $18 at the door.

“I get accused of preaching to the choir,” said Zimmerman. “But that’s not how I think of it. I think of it as ‘entertaining the troops.’” “Wake Up Call” is 90 minutes of songs such as “Abstain With Me,” “I Want a Marriage Like They Had in the Bible,” and heartfelt songs like “Hope, Struggle and Change” and “I Approve This Message,” plus impassioned comic commentary.

In 13 albums through 20 years, Zimmerman has brought the sting of satire to the struggle for peace and social justice.

His songs have been heard on HBO and Showtime and he has been profiled on NPR’s “All Things Considered.”
