Don't let the name fool you. The End Times Opry isn't about Minnie Pearl and Hee-Haw, but rather it's an evening of performances by LA-based musicians, comedians, poets and spoken word artists.
The show's being organized by the Center for the Arts, Eagle Rock & The Eagle Rock Music Festival in partnership with YNM Management and features performances by Rebecca Cory Last Comic Standing 4), Murray Hammond (bassist, Old 97's), poet Charles Harper Webb, the nonprofit Street Poets (a poetry-based peace-making organization), poet and CalArts professor Douglas Kearney, folk artist Alexa Woodward and others.
Also on the bill? The Seven Year Plan (TYSP),a comedy/improv troupe featuring none other than LAist's own Farley Elliot.
