The concert, billed as #GetOutToVoteMN, will feature eleven performances from some of Twin Cities' top hip-hop artists.

In addition to a full set with Brother Ali, #GetOutToVoteMN will include performances by Slug of Atmosphere, Dessa, I Self Devine, Sims, Los Nativos, Mally, Face the Vote, Green Team, Plain Ole Bill, and Kevin Beacham.

Tickets on sale exclusively at Fifth Element, 2411 Hennepin Avenue South, Minneapolis, MN 55405, from 5:00-7:00 pm.

Community organizers from the Ellison Campaign had a large presence at Fifth Element on Monday, October 15th when tickets went on sale. They spoke with ticket buyers about what's at stake this election, got them registered to vote, and made sure they pledge to vote no on the voter restriction and anti-marriage amendments.

Tickets for the event are only $5 (limit of two tickets per person). #GetOutToVoteMN is an 18+ event.
