The power of music is strong, and the will for change is burning.

With Canada's election looming and a large portion of the country fed up with the government's bs (limiting the media’s access to information, removing important environmental protection laws to name a couple), Feist, Dan Mangan, and the Sadies have teamed up for a series of anti-conservative concerts across the country with the goal of shaking off Prime Minister Stephen Harper's conservative chokehold on the nation.

Taking on the title #imagineOct20th, the rebellious concert series will hit Winnipeg, Toronto, and Vancouver with four dates spread across September and October.

#imagineOct20th's website gives a concise summary of the multi-day event's mission:

"We want to encourage Canadians to finally oust the Conservative Government, and to encourage young people to vote in general. In a country where the majority of voters did not vote for the current government, the Conservatives can only benefit from electoral apathy."
