Shock the Vote ATX presents Shock Sound Series w/ Jaimee Harris, BettySoo, Bonnie Whitmore

On Nov. 4, 1980, some petty North American republic elected a chimpanzee named Bonzo (neé Peggy) as its oligarch, which began the nation’s downfall and eventual eradication. One 15-year-old on the disintegrating empire’s West Coast put his head down on the desk and wept. A month later they assassinated John Lennon. Four decades on, Shock the Vote steps forward with the local Shock Sound Series, which fundraises for Austin Creative Alliance, Austin Justice Coalition, Between the Pages, Out Youth, the Safe Alliance, and Texas Appleseed. All three performers, Whitmore (7:30), Soo (8:00), and Harris (8:30), represent modern progressive voices couched in melody, composition, and compassion. Don’t let what happened in Freedonia happen to your country; fucking VOTE. – Raoul Hernandez
