Since all politics is theater anyway, The Stranger is teaming up with Washington Bus—a group of organizers dedicated to turning out the youth vote, which we need need need to show up in all elections forever—to put on the best goddamn show you've ever seen. Seattle drag legend Cookie Couture will host the fifteen million 14 Seattle City Council candidates who pass through the primary election on August 6. After the candidates pitch their policies, they'll face off in a talent show in an effort to be crowned the next member of Seattle City Council. The talent show will likely get wild. Remember last time, when State Sen. Bob Hasegawa played a vape flute? And when Nikkita Oliver rapped? And when Durkan threw tequila into an all-ages crowd? Expect a lot of that, except maybe not so much that last one. "Think a CNN Town Hall mixed with a vogue battle on Pose," says The Stranger's Chase Burns. by Rich Smith
