This looks excellent!

I'd be willing to pay forty dollars for those acts regardless, having the proceeds be for a great cause only encourages me more!

Looking forward to the Nugent/RIIICCEE benefit for McCain.

Will Andrew Bird play a full set?

With all due respect, does Obama's campaign really need help raising $$$?

What, his $400 million dollar campaign bucket isn't enough?

i am guessing that bird won't play a full set as his 2nd hiro ballroom show is the same night.

I'm "guessing" that nobody will play a full set...

woah. guster is playing? i thought they weren't doing any shows this year. this looks great for $40. obama may already have a lot of money but he could use all the help he can get. you checked the polls recently? things aren't looking great for him.

Why would bands who aren't American be shilling for Barack? You don't see American bands going to the UK and playing benefit gigs for Labour Party MPs...
