GILFILLIAN REVISITS GAYE FOR ELECTION

Devon Gilfillian and Friends Jason Isbell, The Lone Bellow and The War and Treaty among them—will perform a livestream concert, There’s An Election Going On, on 10/1 in partnership with The Equity Alliance, Nugs.net and HeadCount.org.

The artists will perform Marvin Gaye’s classic album, What’s Going On, live as well as songs of protest, freedom and community. Other performers will include Aaron Lee Tasjan, Drew Holcomb, Emoni Wilkins, Grace Potter, Jason Eskridge, Joy Oladokun, Katie Pruitt, Kyshona Armstrong, Lera Lynn, Local Natives and Nickie Conley.

“I don’t have much political power, but I do have the power of music,” Gilfillian says. “I decided I wanted to learn the entirety of Marvin Gaye’s album, What’s Going On, and use that music to raise money to fight voter suppression, bring people together, and share the message that Marvin was trying to get across. Marvin simply wanted this country to have a conversation, an informed conversation, on the injustice and pain that people are facing. To simply look at ‘what’s going on.’ Almost 50 years ago, this album came out, and every word still rings with such relevance.”

An auction will take place in conjunction with the event. Proceeds from the event and auction will benefit Nashville-based grassroots non-profit The Equity Alliance.
