Brother Ali, Atmosphere's Slug, and Dessa top a huge lineup of local hip-hop talent signed on for a voting advocacy show at First Avenue later this month.
The show is courtesy of Keith Ellison for Congress, and therefore it'll will be a platform for the local politician to get up and rap a bit himself. He was also at Soul Asylum's album release show at the Ave. back in July.
On Sunday, October 28, it should be a lengthy evening of discussion that fixes to be far more engaging that the first couple televised debates for the presidential election. If we're lucky, Ellison will pull an R.T. and dive into the crowd.
