QUEENSRŸCHE To Perform At Seattle Festival/Political Fundraiser

QUEENSRŸCHE and PEARL JAM are among the acts confirmed to perform at No Vote Left Behind, a festival/political fundraiser to be held Sept. 23-26 at a variety of Seattle venues, according to Billboard.com. The full lineup is still being finalized; tickets go on-sale Sept. 10.

Proceeds from No Vote Left Behind will fund donations to the Democratic National Committee, progressive candidates in congressional races and like-minded political action groups.

"There are a lot of other great organizations that are using music to increase voter turn-out and register voters," said NVLB's Chris Olson. "We want to use music more directly as a fundraising tool. We really want to be a partisan voice in the music community working for regime change."
