VOTE NO Concert on 10/23, two songs from the new album, more updates

Busiest month of my life. A few important updates:

1. First of all, this is coming up on Tuesday, 10/23 at the Varsity Theater in MPLS. Click the image to go to the Facebook event page:
It's going be a very special show. A genuinely diverse lineup featuring artists from a whole bunch of different communities and styles, all coming together to encourage people to VOTE NO on both the marriage amendment and the photo ID amendment. Here's a video PSA I shot with my thoughts on why I'm voting no on both.

2. If you missed it, you can pre-order the new Guante & Big Cats album, YOU BETTER WEAPONIZE, exclusively through Strange Famous Records (home of Sage Francis, B.Dolan, 2mex and many more). You'll get your choice of a signed CD or a signed CD bundled with the album instrumentals and a bunch of my spoken-word poems. Also, here's the first single from the album, available now as a free download:

Plus FIVE REASONS YOU SHOULD COME TO OUR CD release party (11/9 at Hell's Kitchen in MPLS) can be found here.

3. Local cool-kids radio station 89.3 The Current leaked another new song from the album too. It's called "Lightning" and features the always-incredible Chastity Brown. Listen to it here.

4. In case you haven't noticed, we've been posting beautiful, brand-new videos of many of my best poems. Patrick Pegg with Unique Techniques shot and edited them. There are more to come, but we've made three available already. They're the first three listed here.

5. As always, please share (over Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr or real life) whatever you like, whether that's the link to the pre-sale, one of the new songs, info on the Vote No show, one of the new poem videos, or just this whole page. It all makes a difference. Thanks!
