The latest on Krist Novoselic's political activities: "Grunge-rock pioneer Krist Novoselic has decided against running for lieutenant governor, saying he wants to stay involved in progressive politics but 'the whole thing about running a campaign and being a public servant isn't the way to do it.' Instead, one of the founding members of Nirvana will concentrate on his work with Music for America, a group working to boost voter participation among young people. He also will keep up his efforts for election reform." Story courtesy of The Seattle Times. Read the complete article here.
The Washington newspaper Chinook Observer recently did a lengthy interview with Krist Novoselic, talking about music, politics and everything in between.
"The former bassist from Nirvana, Krist Novoselic, will be present at a free concert in Longview next Friday that aims to get young people registered to vote. 'I think Democracy is everybody's business,' said Novoselic, who grew up near Aberdeen and lives on the Southwest Washington coast. 'It's such an exciting year, and there's so much going on in our nation, in our world, and in our state.' The event, which will be held at the former Boardroom skate park on Commerce Avenue is part of 'Music for America.' It's a series of shows and voter registration drives that will be held across the country this spring and summer. The goal is to get 1 million people between the ages of 18 and 35 registered to vote by Oct. 14. U.S. Rep. Brian Baird, D-Vancouver, also is expected to attend the Longview event, which will be held the day before the Washington caucus. Novoselic, 38, said he started getting involved with voter registration drives 10 years ago. He came to Longview for a similar concert in 1998. He said he was disappointed in low voter turnout in the 2003 elections. Although registered voters in Washington typically have a higher participation rate than the national average, fewer than half of them voted less fall." Story courtesy of The Daily News. The event takes place at 8.30 PM this Friday on 1433 Commerce Ave. in Longview, WA. And, please, for the love of God - VOTE if you can! I don't live in the US but I think it's a disgrace to the democratic system that the voter turnout was so low in the last US Presidential elections. It's bad enough that Bush stole the election. VOTE!
