Holley Anderson: Green Party Holiday Party

Holley AndersonOn Wednesday, December 5, 2007 at 7pm, the Babylon Green Party will have its annual Green Party Holiday Party featuring feminist folk singer Holley Anderson. www.holleyanderson.com The new location for the Babylon Green Party gathering is at Pisces Cafe, 14A Railroad Avenue, Babylon, NY (631-321-1231) Come hungry! www.piscescafe.net (map)

Anderson is a young, lefty, gutsy, sweet, coffee-slinging, guitar-toting, hoop-earring- wearing mom. The songs she writes will make you laugh and cry. Anderson’s lyrics are clever, funny, heart-breaking and totally real. She is the co-founder of Vox Pop, the progressive coffee-house and community center in Brooklyn, NY. www.voxpopnet.net Anderson is also a board member of Brooklyn Nonviolent Communication www.brooklynnvc.org. She has played at anti-Bush festivals, Green Party festivals, CBGB’s, and The Sidewalk Cafe. She can be seen playing on most Sundays at the infamous Vox Pop Open Mic. Anderson is working on her second album which has the working title of “Only the Good.”

Anderson “cheered us all up with a song called They’re Lying” said Priya of MediaChannel.org “Without amplified sound, I was afraid that her song would not be heard with horns blaring in the din of midtown traffic, but her lilting voice wafted through the air as she furiously sang ‘Don’t gag my mouth, let me speak/They’re lying to you as they call you loyal/It’s about power it’s about oil/You’re media propagandizes lies/They’re lying to you!’ As Holly played, a couple of cops unconsciously tapped their feet to her punky folk song. There was something satisfying about hearing radical non-corporate music outside of MTV headquarters as they couldn’t capitalize on Holly’s music. ”

Green Party leader Kimberly Wilder described Anderson’s closing a candidate forum with the song They’re Lying as “a passionate, driving, lovely song about how the war is a way for the ruling class to divide us… I was never so happy to be a Green!”

John Pietaro of the band Flames of Discontent described Anderson’s music as “anarcho-feminist punk-folk, though it was all quite tuneful and sang in a lovely voice. Her lyrics spoke of anger with injustice, particularly from a feminist perspective. One song was edgy even in title–‘Why Am I Not a Lesbian?’ –which humorously detailed the many shortcomings of the male gender….What struck me was how open and genuine she came across onstage. I think that there’s a big place for her in the community of folksingers.”

The January 2, 2008 Babylon Green Gathering will feature Jeff Arthur speaking about Ethical and Socially Responsible Investing. The February 6. 2008 Babylon Green Party Gathering in honor of Black History Month will show the film Paul Robeson: Here I Stand courtesy of The Film Connection www.thefilmconnection.org The March 5, 2008 Babylon Green Party Gathering will feature Patricia Burkhart of the Friends of Edgewood Preserve talking about the proposed NYS DOT Long Island Truck to Rail Intermodal (LI TRIM) project in the Brentwood Hamlet of the Town of Islip.
