Hip-Hop Early Voting Party and Second Line 

Why vote early? Because you can, says Q-93 FM personality Wild Wayne and local entertainment lawyer Andy Bizer, who have teamed up with hip-hop community nexus Nuthin But Fire Records to host this funky party with a purpose. Early voting for the presidential election is possible from 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Oct. 21-Oct. 25 and Oct. 27-Oct. 28. Bizer, Wayne and Nuthin But Fire hope to encourage New Orleans voters to cast their ballots. The party starts at One Eyed Jacks with host Wayne and performances from local rappers Sess 4-5, Young Sino, All Night Shawty, Dee-1, Mista Matthew, Black Attack and Talent, J-Goddi and king of bounce DJ Jubilee (pictured). At 3 p.m., a second-line parade departs the club and proceeds to the Orleans Parish Registrar of Voters Office at City Hall. Bring a valid photo ID or other proof of residency, such as a utility bill, if you plan to vote. Free admission. — Alison Fensterstock
