Sing Out the Vote, Octber 22

This note was sent to me by my friend Babette Gorman. Please note that my sister in law, Sally Fingerett of the Four Bitchin Babes was not included on the poster, but will definitively be a part of this - charlie

Dear Charlie,

Please help us Sing Out the Vote this Wednesday, October 22, at 7 PM, at the
Unitarian Church, 93 W. Weisheimer Rd in Clintonville.

Organizer Holly Near says, "A little tour has become a traveling music
festival for change, dedicated to serving the brave people of Ohio. 8 cities
and 18 singers will weave in and out as schedule allows. Singing Out the
Vote in Columbus are some of our country's finest social change artists.
Come get renewed, refueled, and inspired so we all go full tilt to election
day. Add your voice to the choir!"

Holly has info on the other Ohio stops on her website:

Global Gallery has an additional location and they will have advance ticket
sales as well:
3535 North High Street, Clintonville. 614/262-5535.

The flyer is attached but all the text is quoted below, just in case you
have a problem with the attachment. I have added website information for
each of the artists so you can research them if you like.
