Jim James & HeadCount Announce Free “The Future Is Voting Tour” Webcast Tonight From Milwaukee [Watch]

first_imgJim James and HeadCount have announced a free webcast of tonight’s “The Future Is Voting Tour” stop in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The show begins at 8 p.m. Central Time (9 p.m. Eastern Time) and will feature performances by Field Report (solo) and Linqua Franqa in addition to discussion sessions with a number of current political candidates.Coming in the leadup to a highly consequential Election Day on November 6th, the ongoing “The Future Is Voting Tour” is making stops in college towns in electoral “swing districts” in an effort to encourage voter participation. “The Future is Voting Tour” is part concert, part town-hall meeting. In addition to performances by Jim James and a variety of other artists, each stop on the tour includes a non-partisan forum where candidates and their representatives will be invited to speak directly to students and take their toughest questions.As James notes in a press release,The importance of getting involved at this moment in time cannot be overstated. This isn’t only a Get Out The Vote concert. This is a learning moment aimed at college students to motivate them to vote, regardless of where they fall on the political spectrum. Each stop on the tour purposefully takes place in a contested electoral district or state for this important midterm election, where students and young voters have the ability to dramatically affect the outcome of this tremendous moment in history. Please join special surprise guests and myself at these events with the goal of truly inspiring thought, discourse, and participation.After getting the ball rolling in Austin, TX on Sunday and moving on to San Marcos, TX on Tuesday night, James and the HeadCount crew are heading to Milwaukee, Wisconsin, tonight for a students-only stop at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.
