Krist Novoselic, rockin' with The Presidents of the United States of America at The Croc in September.
... Krist Novoselic weighs in with his 2009 election recap. He made the following comments about the music community's role in the election:
Last September, Seattle's music establishment came out in support of the individual campaigns of Dow Constantine, Mike McGinn, and Peter Holmes. It's a sweep of wins. Having a politically active music/entertainment community goes back many years, and has produced officials like bandleader Vic Meyers, who served at different times as Lieutenant Governor and Secretary of State.
The Crocodile hosted various events during election season that not only raised thousands of dollars, but also got good coverage and brought glam to campaigns. These kinds of events will now be a must-do for candidates seeking office locally and beyond.
