Autumn leaves and advocacy in the Twin Cities.
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.

Moment of honesty; I like the concept of getting local artists together for a good cause, but are they performing to support Keith Ellison's position?  

 

There have been some issues in the community regarding racial discrimination, which have been brought to Ellison's attention and he didn't help or even take the time to listen.  

 

I think artists should be more aware of what politicians are doing to advance themselves.

Since these talented artists are supporting Keith Ellison, what do they get? Will he provide funding for the artists throughout Minneapolis since he utilizes their talent when it comes to politics?
