The urgency of current events after the demoralizing 2016 election gave Mac, Laura, Jim, and Jon of Superchunk the momentum to make something new sooner than later. "It would be strange to be in a band, at least our band, and make a record that completely ignored the surrounding circumstances that we live in and that our kids are going to grow up in." Enter What a Time to Be Alive, Superchunk's first album in over four years. The songs on What a Time to Be Alive meet rage and anxiety head-on with the catharsis and exhilaration of loud punk fire and vulnerable pop energy. Like 2013's I Hate Music, which focused on death, loss, and the role of music in an aging life, What a Time to Be Alive brings spirit to the frontlines of pain—it's as defiant as it is despairing, as much a call to arms as a throwing up of hands.
#iVoted is a new initiative founded by entrepreneur Emily White, Mike Luba of Madison House and Pat Sansone of Wilco / The Autumn Defense. The concept is to let fans into venues on November 6th, 2018 (the United States' next national election), who show a photo of themselves outside of their polling place.
Our mission is to increase voter turnout in 2018 and beyond.
Tickets are free with an RSVP online. See our site for more details. Please respect all signs and placards that restrict the use of cell phones in and around polling places.
