Jampaign 2016 VII: A Playlist For Your Democratic Debate Pregame

By Mandy Freebairn, Highlighter staff columnist

Campaign officials announced yesterday that there will be a democratic debate held next Thursday, April 14, right here in New York. The debate, which will take place in Brooklyn, comes just before the New York State primary on April 19th. In honor of Bernie and Hillary facing off right here in our backyard, here’s a playlist that will pair well with the $11 bottle of wine you’ll inevitably drink while watching. In homage to our two candidates, this playlist features a delicate balance of girl-power pop hits and lesser-known indie bands. Some titles may seem on the nose, but don’t read too deeply. Just sit back, crack open a bottle (or box), and don’t forget to vote! Without further adieu, here’s your official democratic debate playlist:
