Wednesday, August 25, 2004

No Vote Left Behind, a political action committee that aims to raise money for the Kerry-Edwards campaign, and others, has announced a Sept. 23-26 festival/fundraiser, in Seattle.

Pearl Jam, Queensryche, David Cross, Mudhoney, John Doe, Grant-Lee Phillips, Pansy Division Jon Auer (of the Posies), Kinski, El Vez and others will perform at the Crocodile, Showbox, Sunset Tavern, Tractor Tavern, Neumo’s, Graceland and the Comet Tavern, among others. The complete line-up, with specific times and dates, will be announced after Labor Day. Tickets go on sale Sept. 10.
