About the event:
The debut appearance of “The Proxy” at The Fox Theatre on Monday, October 22nd is being presented by Proxy.Vote—A new, more democratic way to express the will of the people, powered by social and legislative technology that enables voters to organize and tell their elected representatives how to vote in real-time. By proxy, this show is also highlighting the congressional campaign of Nick Thomas because of his pledge to use the Proxy.Vote platform. Colorado Rising is also in support of the show because of the unified commitment between the performing artists and the independent candidate to Vote Yes on Proposition 112. Proposition 112 is a statewide ballot initiative to protect public health and safety from fracking by establishing 2,500-foot buffer zones between oil and gas operations and occupied buildings such as homes, schools and other vulnerable areas such as water sources and playgrounds. Nick Thomas is the only congressional candidate in Colorado to endorse Proposition 112. Last but not least, this one of a kind performance is also being presented by Westword and Twist & Shout Records.
About the music:
The night will begin with Jules Schroeder of Unconventional Life, whose original songs and vocal prowess walk the line somewhere between Adele, Little Feat, and Abstract Soul. Alex Ebert and Nico Aglietti of Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros will follow with a duo performance to close out the first set of music.
The second set will begin with members of Elephant Revival, led by Bonnie Paine, playing a diverse mix from deep within the band’s repertoire and will end with Jules, Alex, and Nico returning to stage to transform the performance into round robin affair of fan favorites from each bands’ respective catalogues.
