While at the moment there isn’t an official rock and roll All-Star team, the lineup that’s been put together for HeadCount’s Get Out and Vote Party on Election Eve, Monday, November 3 at the Highline Ballroom in New York City and streamed live on the Internet on iClips.net, reads like a who’s/who of our favorite musicians of all-time.
HeadCount celebrates the culmination of the Magic Hat Participation program on the 3rd with performances by Joss Stone, Robert Randolph, ?uestlove of The Roots and Stanton Moore. Also appearing at this first-of-its-kind event will be some of NYC and Philadelphia’s most popular musicians: Joe Russo and Marco Benevento of The Duo, Chris Barron of The Spin Doctors, Dave Dreiwitz of Ween, Reid Genauer of Assembly of Dust, Tom Hamilton and Scott Metzger of American Babies, and Aron Magner and Marc Brownstein of The Disco Biscuits. Brownstein is HeadCount’s co-chair.
Only 500 tickets will be sold to the general public for this event, which will serve as a benefit for HeadCount’s nonpartisan voter mobilization efforts. Only a few $50 general admission ducats remain, so be sure to pick up your tickets ASAP. Now, as part of our Everybody Wins When I Plug Something And In Return They Offer Me Free Shit To Give Away, we’ve got one pair of tickets to this unbelievable event to give away. We know how important the privilege of voting is, but we want to make sure our readers do as well. To enter our contest leave a comment below telling us in 50 words or less what the privilege of voting means to you. Also, you must leave the name and address of your local polling place.
