Michelle Shocked is singing a new tune — that of the victim. The alt-folk singer went on a homophobic tirade earlier this month which prompted mass cancellations of her U.S. tour.

Since she’s got nothing but time these days, Shocked took her guitar and sense of righteous indignation to one of those canceled venues — Moe’s Alley in Santa Cruz — and staged an old-fashion sit-in with her face covered and her mouth taped shut.

The AP reports:

The tape across her mouth said “Silenced By Fear.” When asked a question, Shocked shook her head vigorously and strummed her guitar…She pointed to a sign inviting people to pick up a Sharpie marker and write on the white disposable safety suit she was wearing.

The owner of Moe’s Alley, Bill Welch, said he’d be sending “some healing Santa Cruz energy her way.”

Previously, Shocked had planned to give a talk on gay bashing at McCabe’s Club in Santa Monica, something McCabe’s promptly denied.
