Wilco’s Jeff Tweedy is set to perform at a free get-out-the vote event on Wednesday, November 2, supporting Representative Lauren Underwood. It happens at the Egyptian Theatre in DeKalb, Illinois, and those who volunteer for two canvassing or phone-banking shifts can access VIP tickets for the event. Find more information at Eventbrite. Election Day is Tuesday, November 8.
Tweedy joins Justin Vernon and others advocating for civic action as the time approaches for U.S. midterm elections, which have become more pressing in the wake of June’s Roe V. Wade reversal. Since releasing Cruel Country with Wilco in May, Tweedy has continued his Starship Casual newsletter, and more recently appeared on the Sing for Science podcast to discuss consciousness.
