The Suffers' Kam Franklin is getting ready for Election Day with a virtual rally and concert - WXPN | Vinyl At Heart

Kam Franklin of The Suffers is getting out the vote. On Tuesday, October 27 — just one week before Election Day — Franklin will be joined by fellow artists from the South for a livestream event that celebrates Southern art and the importance of voting.

“Years ago, I had a vision to create and curate a music festival that served as an opportunity to launch more independent artists and more southern artists of color making original music and playing captivating live shows,” says Franklin. “I would have no limitations to the genre, and I’d work with artists looking to grow and change the world together through the power of music. I feel so incredibly lucky to have talent from all over the south representing just a taste of what’s to come.”

More than two dozen musicians and poets from across the South will perform, including Nashville’s Nicole Atkins and Devon Gilfillian, Big Sam’s Funky Nation and SaxKixAve from New Orleans, and Austin’s Tiarra Girls, Jackie Venson, and Riders Against The Storm. Many of The Suffers’ fellow Houston artists are also on the lineup, including Elliot Franshaw, Madeline Edwards, and Uncle Tino.

HeadCount will provide resources for viewers to check their voter registration status and polling locations, and a portion of proceeds will be donated to Raices Texas and Shape Community Center. Read more and RSVP for free here.
