Alternative folk singer Michelle Shocked strums her guitar during a sit-in outside Moe’s Alley nightclub in Santa Cruz, Calif., on Thursday, March 28, 2013, after her show was canceled because she made an anti-gay slur earlier this month. Miss Shocked had her face covered and her mouth taped shut. She dressed in a white disposable safety suit and invited people to write on it. (AP Photo/Thomas Vincent Mendoza)
