Kam Franklin and Friends

By: Laurie Gallardo

A friendly reminder: Early voting continues in Texas through this Friday, October 30. November 3 looms on the not-so-distant horizon. And songwriter / activist / The Suffers‘ front woman Kam Franklin is taking the lead with a gargantuan virtual event to remind folks to get up off their butts already and vote.

Kam Franklin and Friends is a livestream concert celebrating Southern music, poetry, and the importance of voting. Curated by Franklin, the free event features artists, bands and poets from cities throughout the Southern region – including Texas, with plenty of familiar names from Houston and Austin. Fat Tony, The Suffers, Tiarra Girls, AJ Haynes (Seratones), KUTX Artist of the Month Jackie Venson, Devon Gilfillian, Mobley, Joshua Asante, Mama Duke, Riders Against the Storm and many others are part of a huge bill that will blow your mind.

The big party starts at 7 p.m. (Central) tonight, Tuesday October 27, on Musik Houston’s YouTube channel. And Head Count will be on hand to provide voting and poll location information. Proceeds from the event benefit Raices and Shape Community.
