"Constantine gets endorsement during Pearl Jam show"

Strange Bedfellows (seattlepi.com):
Dow Constantine got some high-profile help in his bid for County Executive during Monday night's Pearl Jam concert at KeyArena.

Seattlepi.com reporter Casey McNerthney was at the show and says during the band's second encore lead singer Eddie Vedder told the crowd that Krist Novoselic, the former Nirvana bassist and Constantine supporter, called him and urged him to vote for Constantine rather than Susan Hutchison in November.

Constantine, the County Council chairman, has the support of many people in Seattle's music scene. He was a DJ at KCMU when he attended the University of Washington and got to know people like Novoselic.
