MADISON — Tammy Baldwin and Eau Claire-based band Bon Iver today announced BON IVER x BALDWIN — an early vote rally and concert on October 20 at The Sylvee in Madison to promote early voting across Wisconsin.
“Voting matters, and voting for Tammy Baldwin keeps it that way,” Bon Iver said in a statement. “We are thrilled to support Sen. Baldwin in encouraging early voting in Wisconsin with a rally and concert at Madison’s brand new venue The Sylvee on Oct. 20.”
“I’m excited to be joined by Bon Iver to help spread the word and celebrate early voting here in Wisconsin,” said U.S. Senator Tammy Baldwin. “Bon Iver has brought Wisconsinites together for years through their music, and this concert is a great opportunity to share with people the importance of getting involved and making your voice heard.”
Formed and still based in Eau Claire, Wisconsin, Bon Iver has achieved worldwide acclaim since the release of its 2007 debut album For Emma, Forever Ago. Such acclaim has led to multiple Grammy Awards, gold and platinum selling albums, international tours and collaborations with a wide range of notable artists, from Kanye West to Bruce Hornsby.
The Sylvee is Madison’s newest live music venue located just east of downtown Madison.
