Benyaro Get Out The Vote Fall Tour Comes To Clyde's On Main Sept. 24

Tuesday, August 23, 2016

Benyaro - Wyoming’s indie roots and rock artist – will be performing select dates across the USA for their Get Out The Vote fall tour, partnering with HeadCount and Rock the Vote to encourage registration and voting in November's elections. They kicked off the tour on Aug. 14 with a 'Rock the Vote' show at Q Roadhouse in their adopted hometown of Jackson Hole. They will be in Chattanooga at Clyde's on Main Sept. 24. 

Review for Benyaro:

Of the civically minded tour, frontman Ben Musser states, “Voting is very important, no matter the choices. It may sound hyperbolic, but people die every day fighting to have that right. Many Americans take it for granted. I hope to encourage folks across the USA to shed cynicism, use your best judgement, and vote practically on Nov. 8." 

This election season is particularly one of interest for Ben Musser who attended The Hill School alongside Donald Trump, Jr. Despite those school boy ties, Musser is actively campaigning against his former classmate’s father. 

In conjunction with their tour, Benyaro will release the first new material from their sessions with Danny Kadar (The Avett Brothers, My Morning Jacket), recorded at Echo Mountain Studios in Asheville, NC. The politically inspired song "Too Many Men" will be released as a single to college and AAA radio on Aug. 30.

Roy Exum: Why CNN Is Gonna Croak

I believe CNN (Cable News Network) has become one of the most disappointing news sources America has ever known in the last five years. The bastions of sound journalism no longer exist as the once-great organization has gone the way of liberal loathing. Its new basis-of-fact cannot be trusted and the overwhelming bias against conservatives in our nation is as morbid as it is frightening. ... (click for more)
