Hella Bus Blog
There's one person who makes sure the Bus runs smoothly, on time, and under budget. If there is anyone at the Bus who is shovel-ready, it is the one and only Sarah Nason (that's her on the right). And today is her birthday. Happy birthday Sarah/disco chimp!
The stage is set - and Trick or Vote is nearly upon us! You've got your costume all set to go, your team is all ready to rock, and the only thing you're still wondering is who exactly you're going to get to rock out to at the Trick or Vote afterparty.
Wonder no more: we're lifting the veil of secrecy.
For your Trick or Voting pleasure, we're proud to have three of Seattle's finest crews providing the good musics for your ear.
Helladope: Taking Seattle by storm with their future-groove hip hop stylings, Helladope has become one of the most critically acclaimed acts in the bubbling local scene. Helmed by producer/emcee Tay Sean and legendary emcee Jerm, Helladope is the creme de la creme in Seattle.
Hi Life Sound System: What does every party need? That's right: a party starter. Hi Life Sound System - the supergroup consisting of emcees Khingz and B Flat, and producer Crispy - have a bachelors degree in good vibes, a masters in energy, and a phd in getting it cracking. Their inaugural release is on the verge of release, and already Hi Life have established themselves as one of Seattle's finest at party rocking.
Selector Tang: The goal of every DJ should be quality selections and an ear for the finest in musics. Selector Tang owns both those categories. Representing the Last Night's Mixtape family, Tang brings the best of the global best, from dancehall to dubstep to straight up hip hop.
Trick or Vote: get out that vote AND the party of the year!
Each and every year, the Bus asks you one all-important, vital-to-the-good-of-society question: do you like candy? And the answer is, of course, yes. You love candy. You also love getting it for free... and also getting thousands of young people to vote.
All this can add up to only one thing: Trick or Vote is lurking just around the corner!
'Tis true. The biggest non-partisan costumed get-out-the-vote canvass/candy party in Washington is back in action! This year is going to be the biggest, best, and all-around spookiest (here we go with Halloween puns, yes, already) Trick or Vote Washington has ever seen - no matter where you live in Washington, you're near a Trick or Vote! Spokane? Hell yeah. Vancouver? Believe it. Seattle? Trick or Voting like a boss.
That means you and this year, you've got tons of options! Want to find the nearest Trick or Vote to you? Just go here and enter your zip code - you can RSVP right then and there. Want to be a Trick or Vote Captain or a Trick or Trainer? Most excellent! We want you too! RSVP just the same, and we'll get you going from there!
As always, Trick or Vote is ALL AGES, and is going down on October 31st. Because we love parties, we're throwing parties (see how that works?) after the Trick or Voting has gone down. Keep your eyes peeled for the performers and venues to be announced!
Halloween: not just for kids anymore, amirite??? RSVP today!
