Rock the Conservation Vote

Posted By on Mon, Oct 19, 2009 at 2:58 PM

Conservation Voters for Idaho is taking inspiration from an old MTV standby this season.

While the conservation PAC won’t be airing bad reality programming geared toward the still-need-a-fake-ID crowd, it is trying to rally the apathetic Boise masses through a Rock the Vote event.

Boise musician—and CVI board member—Bill Coffey will be performing along with an array of local musicians to raise money to support Conservation Voters, which will, in turn, support pro-conservation political candidates.

Conservation Voters has already handed out its endorsements for this election cycle, tapping Boise City Council incumbents Maryanne Jordan and Vern Bisterfeldt, as well as political newcomer TJ Thomson for the three City Council seats up for grabs this year.

The musical line-up is an impressive list of who’s-who in the Boise music scene, including: David Andrews, Amuma Says No, Audio Moonshine, Belle of Les Bois, Belinda Bowler, Andy Byron, Billy G. Camp, Dan Costello, Ned Evett, Steve Fulton, The Heaters, Jeremiah James, Kill Uncle, Thomas Paul, Bernie Reilly, Rebecca Scott, Sherpa, Curtis Stigers, Travis Ward and Tim Willis.

Tim Johnstone, from 94.9 The River, will host the musical/political event (a muspo if you will), on Tuesday, Oct. 27 at the Visual Arts Collective, 3638 Osage St., in Garden City. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. with the show at 7:30 p.m. Admission is $10 at the door for those aged 21 and older. A $20 bill will get you in and give you a one-year membership to CVI.
