Nick Hexum is one of my “look up to’s” – glad to hear he is for Kerry – and they are covering some Beatle tunes to boot! – Nice~!
Nick Hexum and his brother, singer/songwriter Zack Hexum, have just announced their upcoming mini-tour throughout the swing states to raise awareness of the coming presidential election. Nick said, “It hit me like a ton of bricks that I wasn’t doing enough to help spread the word about the most important election of our lifetimes. I decided I couldn’t live with myself if I didn’t do everything in my power to help educate voters on what I believe are terrible missteps by the Bush administration and to help inform people about Kerry’s clear and concise plan for our country. So I’m going on the road to play some music and spread the word.” He added, “We’ll be playing intimate club-sized venues and we’re keeping the ticket prices really low. It’s going to be a great experience. We’ll play some 311 songs, some songs from Zack â€˜s debut album â€œThe Story So farâ€¦â€? and covers from The Beatles, Radiohead, The Pixies, Billy Joel, Bob Marley &The Clash – and we’ll be talking about the election and the need for a regime change in this country. We hit the trail on October 20th.”
