Warren Haynes and Tea Leaf Green Help HeadCount at Randalls Island
If you’re at Dave Matthews Band Randall’s Island festival this Saturday, don’t do a double-take if you see Warren Haynes or members of Tea Leaf Green in the crowd with clipboards. They’ll be stopping by the HeadCount booth to assist with the group’s nationwide voter registration drive. Teal Leaf Green will come by at 2:50, while Haynes will be at the booth at 7:45 EST. Nearly all the artists scheduled to perform at Randalls Island are affiliated with HeadCount, including Gov’t Mule, Tea Leaf Green, Bela Fleck, Yonder Mountain String Band and Dave Matthews Band. The two-day festival is part of the HeadCount ‘Midterms Matter’ tour, a nationwide effort to register voters and raise awareness of the upcoming election in November.
Of course, Jambands.com/Relix will be onsite as well, bringing you the festivals official daily newspaper, the Randalls Island Satellite. In addition, Relixs Cold Turkey will be offering online commentary and music from Randalls Island beginning tonight (Thanks to the wonders of modern technology, the CT team will be at Lollapalooza throughout the weekend as well).
