This has been a truly divisive election season, with candidates Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump engaging in a glorified, seemingly-never-ending grudge match. Well, fortunately, on November 8th, the election will finally come to a close, as people across the nation will go out and vote for the candidate of their choice.
Once you’ve voted, head on over to Brooklyn Bowl for a very special election-night performance by the Everyone Orchestra. The event, dubbed “Soundtrack to History”, will be presented by Magic Hat Brewing Company in conjunction with HeadCount, and will feature a who’s who of jam icons that will be musically interpreting the election results in real time. The results and the mood of the crowd will be used as a muse for improvisation that is unlike any show that has come before it.
Matt Butler will of course conduct the band, with Steve Kimock, Marc Brownstein and Aron Magner of The Disco Biscuits, Vinnie Amico of moe., Jay Jennings and Chris Bullock of Snarky Puppy, Jeremy Salken of Big Gigantic, Natalie Cressman of Trey Anastasio Band, and former The Motet frontman Jans Ingber on the impressive bill. Several unannounced special guests slated to make an appearance as well.
HeadCount founder and Co-Chair Marc Brownstein explained that “we’re giving fans a chance to have a shared musical experience on a night they may remember the rest of their lives. We’ve always wanted to do something like this and Everyone Orchestra is a perfect musical outlet to make it happen.” You can learn all about HeadCount in this recently-published feature on the important, bipartisan voter registration group.
Sounds like an amazing way to spend election night! Tickets can be purchased at this link starting Friday, October 14th at 10am EDT.
