Tonight in Milwaukee, WI, HeadCount and Jim James continue their collaborative “The Future is Voting” tour, a series of six events in swing-state districts around the country featuring the My Morning Jacket frontman along with other artists and politicians, in anticipation of next month’s midterm elections. And, after opening the tour this past weekend in Austin, TX, HeadCount and James will offer a free webcast of tonight’s event, which will take place at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.
The live stream will feature a solo set from James, plus a solo performance from Field Report’s Christopher Porterfield and an appearance from hip-hop artist and activist Linqua Franqa. HeadCount is also inviting Congressional candidates from both sides of the aisle to take questions from college students in attendance (the show is being held in the Congressional district of Paul Ryan, the Speaker of the House of Representatives who is leaving Congress).
The webcast of tonight’s Milwaukee event is set to begin at 9pm ET. Watch in the video below.
