Just two days before the 2014 general state election, Congressman Keith Ellison will host a Minnesota hip-hop-star-studded event billed as #GetOuttheVoteMN in the Mainroom of First Avenue.
The November 2 show will feature a pair of hip-hop acts that have new albums out this fall—Sims, who released Field Notes just last month; and Toki Wright and Big Cats, who just celebrated the release of their acclaimed Pangaea—plus St. Paul stalwarts Heiruspecs, the MC and spoken-word artist Guante, and roots-rock frontman Gabriel Douglas of the 4onthefloor. Additional special guests are also planned.
Similar to the event he threw in 2012, proceeds from #GetOuttheVoteMN will go toward the Keith Ellison for Congress campaign. Tickets and more info available at First Avenue’s site.
Here’s the flyer for the event:
