Rocktober: Get Out And Vote!

Steve Kimock - Steve Kimock Band, KVHW, Zero, Praang

Is this election different than past elections, why or why not?

Steve Kimock
Yeah, it's different. We are at a tipping point. Between the war for profit crowd and the "rather have a couple extra quintillion dollars today than a biosphere in a couple of generation folks," we are not going to have a recognizable United States of America soon or a habitable planet later. We got to get rid of those people before it's too late.

What is the relationship between music and politics - and how, if at all, has this relationship affected your music?

There's not a very big or direct relationship between politics and anything but business, in my honest opinion. The current state of affairs isn't helping the music any but it's not telling me where to put my fingers, if you know what I mean.

If you could speak directly to all American voters, what would you say?

Want to fix the economy? Legalize pot.

Steve Kimock's next show is on December 5 in Colorado with Praang (Kimock, Janover, Travis & Hann). Keep up to date on all things Kimock here.
