complaint choirs

According to the folks at complaintchoir.org,

Thanks to their work, there have been complaint choirs around the world. Here's an example from Chicago:

In a serious mode, I would complain about these complaints--where are the solutions? But I'm happy to lighten up and enjoy the show, in particular the natural juxtaposition of the merely personal with the grandly political: "Our president is a cowboy / I hate my homeowners association." It's the lifeworld and the public sphere all mashed together and set to music. A democratic art.
