joan-baezTonight, folk legend and lifelong civil rights activist Joan Baez lends her voice in support of Green Party candidate Reverend Billy Talen’s mayoral bid. Also featuring the Rev’s Life After Shopping Gospel Choir among others, the Elect-a-lujah benefit concert costs just $15 and starts at 7 PM in the Highline Ballroom. Of course, if you prefer your mayoral candidate’s music off-key, head to Times Square to check out the Naked Cowboy, who doesn’t even live in New York City.
