With only a few days left until Nov. 4, many of you may be feeling the fatigue from the nasty campaigning that has characterized this election. But it’s still far too early to sit down and relax or to change the channel. There’s still alot of work to be done to help make sure people get out and vote.
In the past few √Ç weeks, several fundraisers here in D.C. have supported the Obama campaign–many featuring performances by bands and artists of all kinds doing their part to help get the right candidate in office.
Washington D.C.’s own The Kora Records recently held a house show fundraiser, Band Together For Obama, featuring label artists The Piano Creeps, fresh off a multi-city tour in support of their new album, Future Blues (For Me and You). The show also featured√Ç one of the newest additions to the Kora family, Pree, featuring May Tabol, who you might recognize from her stint with Le Loup.
We had a chance to spend a bit of time with these fine bands, and get their take on that sometimes tenuous relationship between art and politics. The setting was warm and friendly, and in the end, the Band Together for Obama benefit was a great success, raising over $1,000 in donations for the campaign.
