Thanks Ang. I'm signed on as an Iclips user in anticipation. I wonder who Kreutzman is supporting! They could have gotten more than $35 for tix, sold out BTW.

I got shut out, missed the onsale time by 20 minutes or so. I did see the Phil & Friends Mardi Gras show this past Saturday and it was outstanding. The band's come a long way since the show I saw at the Greek this past summer.

How is supporting a compassionate and intelligent canidate politcal debauchery? Obama is a very viable canidate whose fierce intellect should not be overlooked. People are entitled to support causes they believe in, Phil, Bob and the rest are doing just that. It is neither politically debaucherous nor irresponsible, rather it shows that they care about the outcome of this election and the future of this nation.

The real news is that Phil, Bob & Mickey are playing together for the first time in a long while. Even if it's a one off, it's still good that they are trying to mend fences. Kreutzman lives in Hawaii, so it's not surprising he's not listed to play, on such short notice. Who knows, maybe he'll show also?

I donít know about anyone else, but when I spend my hard earned $$ for a show, no matter who is playing, the last thing I want to hear is the band spew their political crap to me. I go for the music not to hear them tell me who to vote for. I remember after the last Presidential election, the media researched the entertainers that were out there hawking a candidate. The majority of them werenít even registered and the ones that were didnít bother to vote. Kind of sad isn't it?

IMHO, any show you see is going to have some political innuenda included. In fact some of the bands featured in this site have very strong political views and they are not so subtle in their lyrics.

Good post. Too many Hollywood blowhards with agendas.

Sometimes some of the best political info comes from the mouths of nobodies that sit in the early mornings at the corner cafe.

What I would like to see in American politics is accountability.

If you make a promise during your campaign to get elected and then renege on it: you loose three months of your term. Example: 'In my first year I will provide health insurance for all,' 'I'll get us out of Iraq,' 'I'll provide a fair minimum wage.'...

I'm tired of promises made during an election year that become 'blah-blah-blah' after the person wins the election. Would you stay with a cable company or cell phone provider that blows smoke up your....? Bush would've served 90 days under this rule!

Accountability. A new word in American politics that maybe only one President understood----Enjoy safe food? Enjoyed a National Park adventure on land that oil companies covet? Monopolies busted? Pride in your country not based on some mumbo-jumbo, first African-American ever invited to eat a meal as a guest at the White House although it cost the President greatly? American military might paraded throughout the world, a canal built.

I could go on and on.

Remember TR for all of those things. FDA didn't exist, National Parks were a hodge podge of tiny areas, railroads ruled, Booker T Washington not worthy, W.W.I, Panama.

We need another TR. Obama is not TR. He has great handlers and a face meant for radio.

'Don't piss on my back and tell me its raining'---Outlaw Josey Wales

(just my opinion folks, no greater than each one of yours. Vote wise and be connected with your community, pass it on to your kids)

Anybody who would vote for any candidate just because (fill in the blank) a musician, athlete, actor, etc. endorses them is a moron anyway, and probably mentally underqualified to utilize their vote to begin with.

wanna say something "write a song" about it... I don't care how much I liked a performer or band...I sure am not gonna be kewl with kicking back and listening to someone rant about political view or opinion when I payed to hear tunes. This is never acceptable in my book, even if I agree with what they are saying.

Do you know how many impressionable (and usually very young) voters there are out there who NEVER pick up a newpaper or watch a newscast? Celebrity endorsements are used to sell every product out there - from beer and soft drinks to automobies and political candidates. Blind faith is more than the name of a 60's rock band!

I think most people vote for a face or a personality anyway. The media itself plays a sometimes irresponsible role. Many outlets seem to be snubbing Hillary Clinton in favor of Obama - without ever really listening Obama's credentials or qualifications. The funny thing so far in this election has been how far off all the polls have been so far.

It's all calculated. All marketing and they know the web is the most powerful tool. The webcast is calculated just for that reason. Just as getting John McCain to say "Gentlemen start your engines" at the Daytona 500, which is in the works. Like Rusty said, Blind Faith. I read an article not too long ago, that said the majority of people on public assistance (welfare) who vote, vote republican. Go figure?

Exactly!

I don't mind Obama, he will get my vote if my hopeful doesn't make the cut.

I don't like musicians publicly making a stand on a certain political figure. It is sick. The Political system is so corrupt, and out of touch with the citizens, it is sad to see a popular group of folks with ties to not being the status quo assert their "Yuppie-hood" towards a political agenda or party or person.

"hey look at us, surviving members of the Grateful Dead! We are gonna vote for Obama, and if you are cool and like our concerts, you should too!"
I don't care who they vote for. When and why did "WHO YA VOTING FOR?" become the standard political discussion talk?

It doesn't matter how you support, or who they support, if it gets into a debate with others, you are gonna have those who are against your viewpoint....a viewpoint that doesn't matter anyway because of the corrupt system.
What they should be doing is sticking their necks out and help america find a third party to compete with the two that have all the smiles but no **** ing answers.


....
and for the record, Carter was a horrible president, only 1 upped by the current moron, and the ABB was high on Cocaine, Fame and money and supported him for his Georgia ties.

We Canít Make It Here by James McMurtry
(for Luke)

Thereís a Vietnam Vet with a cardboard sign
Sitting there by the left turn line
Flag on his wheelchair flapping in the breeze
One leg missing and both hands free
No oneís paying much mind to him
The V.A. budgetís just stretched so thin
And now thereís more coming back from the Mideast war
We canít make it here anymore


That big olí building was the textile mill that fed our kids and it paid our bills
But they turned us out and they closed the doors
We canít make it here anymore


See those pallets piled up on the loading dock
Theyíre just gonna sit there Ďtil they rot
ĎCause thereís nothing to ship, nothing to pack
Just busted concrete and rusted tracks
Empty storefronts around the square
Thereís a needle in the gutter and glass everywhere
You donít come down here unless youíre looking to score
We canít make it here anymore

The barís still open but man itís slow
The tip jarís light and the registerís low
The bartender donít have much to say
The regular crowd gets thinner each day
Some have maxed out all their credit cards
Some are working two jobs and living in cars
Minimum wage wonít pay for a roof, wonít pay for a drink
If you gotta have proof just try it yourself Mr. CEO
See how far $5.15 an hour will go
Take a part time job at one your stores
Bet you canít make it here anymore

Thereís a high school girl with a bourgeois dream
Just like the pictures in the magazine
She found on the floor of the laundromatA woman with kids can forget all that
If she comes up pregnant whatíll she do
Forget the career, forget about school
Can she live on faith? Live on hope?
High on Jesus or hooked on dope
When itís way too late to just say no
You canít make it here anymore

Now Iím stocking shirts in the Wal-Mart store
Just like the ones we made before
Ď Cept this one came from Singapore
I guess we canít make it here anymore

Should I hate a people for the shade of their skin
Or the shape of their eyes or the shape Iím in
Should I hate Ďem for having our jobs today
No I hate the men sent the jobs away
I can see them all now, they haunt my dreams
All lily white and squeaky clean
Theyíve never known want, theyíll never know need
Their **** donít stink and their kids wonít bleed
Their kids wonít bleed in their damn little war
And we canít make it here anymore

Will work for food will die for oil
Will kill for power and to us the spoils
The billionaires get to pay less tax
The working poor get to fall through the cracks
So let Ďem eat jellybeans let Ďem eat cake
Let Ďem eat **** , whatever it takes
They can join the Air Force, or join the Corps
If they canít make it here anymore

So thatís how it is, thatís what we got
If the president wants to admit it or not
You can read it in the paper, read it on the wall
Hear it on the wind if youíre listening at all
Get out of that limo, look us in the eye
Call us on the cell phone tell us all why

In Dayton Ohio or Portland Maine
Or a cotton gin out on the great high plains
Thatís done closed down along with the school
And the hospital and the swimming pool
Dust devils dance in the noonday heat
Thereís rats in the alley and trash in the street
Gang graffiti on a boxcar door
We canít make it here anymore

I don't think that's true. I assume you are referring to Mule since I don't think the ABB or DTB have particulalry political songs. I would say of the songs Mule plays perhaps ten percent at most could EVER be construed as political and that includes covers. Of those, the overwhelming majority are what I would call social protest songs and certainly do not attack any particular party or figure. Mule has a few songs like Unring the Bell that are overtly political but most are not. I know Warren's politics are quite different from mine. I have seen him perform many many times and have NEVER felt like our disagreements make it difficult to enjoy or appreciate his music. Roger Waters, on the other hand, I came close to walking out of. There is a VERY big difference. That said, this particular show, you know what you are going to get going in, a campaign rally for Barak Obama.

Doug

Isn't there a clear difference here, though? Calling it "Dead Heads For Obama" gives you a pretty clear heads-up that it's a politically-oriented evening, which is quite different than "unsolicited" political statements from a performer.
