HT Giveaway: HeadCount & Magic Hat’s Election Eve Get Out & Vote Party

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, 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.

    Voting in general is giving the middle finger to Karl Rove and all the negative vibes he sent throughout this country for the past 8 years:

  6. It’s obviously important to have a voice and to use your vote to tell the country where you think it should be headed. More important than that is getting into the proactive voting mindset where you look to better your community and country in whatever ways you can, no matter how small. It’s about knowing at the end of the day that you did what you could to make your country a better place.

  7. Voting means the ability to participate in democracy and effect positive change in government. Our country is far from perfect, but one of its most noble foundations is that citizens can express themselves at the ballot box. Voting is being an American!
