There are important shows and there are Important Shows. The 2008 version of Go Vote, put on by Stateside Presents, would obviously fall in the latter, capitalized category.
In conjunction with congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, Calexico, Jim Adkins of Jimmy Eat World and Mariachi Luz de Luna will perform Sept. 20 at Rialto Theatre in Tucson as a way to encourage young people to get out and vote.
Tickets ($15-$35) are available at Giffords’ Web site. Ticket sales benefit Giffords for Congress.
More to come, as I’m working on a freelance story about this, but I do know Calexico will be backing up Adkins for some songs.
