Willie Nelson is cordially inviting his fans to join in a celebration for his birthday tonight (April 29th) at 4:20 PM CST, or 10:20pm UK time. Tickets are $10 and proceeds will be donated to the Cannabis Voter Project, an organization that informs, registers and turns out voters who are interested in cannabis policy.
The broadcast will feature a conversation between journalist Patrick Doyle and the patron saint of weed himself, as well as Nathanial Rateliff’s rendition of ‘Happy Birthday.’ And there’ll be musical performances from a pretty impressive range of artists including The Flaming Lips, Aaron Lee Tasjan, Marcus King, Billy Strings, Parker Millsap, and Los Coast. Additionally, James Beard winner Mason Hereford (Turkey and the Wolf) will give a cooking tutorial and Micah Nelson (Particle Kid) will give an at-home demo all about hempcrete. And there’ll be a special surprise birthday message from Jay and Silent Bob. And hey, you can stop your blood pressure going through the roof by avoiding Question Time. Win win!
