Chance the Rapper is Hosting a Free Rooftop Concert in Chicago to Get Out the Vote
Chance the Rapper wants to remind you to not throw your vote away by not voting. He’s passionate enough about it to be hosting a Monday late afternoon “get out the vote” concert on the roof of a Chicago hotel… which happens to be free. According to a press release, the performers will include Chicago acts like Chance’s brother and rapper Taylor Bennett, Twin Peaks, Malcolm London, and more. The concert is co-sponsored by Virgin Hotels Chicago and Chance’s own nonprofit SocialWorks.
SocialWorks members will be leading concertgoers to a local polling station throughout the show, in a so-called “Parade to the Polls”
If you’re in Chicago, and want to attend the show and polling party: It’s at Virgin Hotels Chicago at 203 N. Wabash Ave., 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Monday, November 7 . Chance is scheduled to arrive at 5.
