Sheryl Crow rocks the vote

The performers at the "Get Out and Vote" concert at the Richmond Coliseum on Tuesday night expressed a desire for change and peace in America after the coming election. Between songs, The Beastie Boys, Sheryl Crow, Jack Johnson, Norah Jones and Santogold all encouraged the people in the audience to take advantage of their right to vote on Election Day. "I believe that we have the opportunity to change the course of our nation," Crow said. The tour, which played in cities in swing states, was sponsored by Rock the Vote, a non-partisan organization aimed at encouraging youths involvement in politics. Santogold, who amplified her electronic sound with metallic-clad back-up dancers, opened the show with her new-age techno hits, such as "The Creator" and "Shuv It." She said the lyrics of "Shuv It" were especially poignant because they were about speaking up and causing change. "We got some serious fixing up to do," Santogold said.
