By now some of you have heard about the free concert given by Cincinnati's own - and my second favorite band - The National on Thursday in support of the next President of the United States. The National and Dayton's own The Breeders will be playing from 5-8pm on Fountain Square.
We need a LARGE turnout here to show SW Ohio that we are serious about change. And even if you want more of the same, come by and listen to two awesome bands (one more awesomer than the other) (yes, I know awesomer isn't a word) play live FOR FREE in Cincy.
My god, do I love this band. They're like the Second Coming of Bono. Seriously, seriously, seriously, if you want change, send this info and kidnap all of your friends and take them to Fountain Square on Thursday. Seriously, because like, seriously, you could support a candidate, but if you don't lift a finger for your candidate, he might lose. Also, HAVE YOU VOTED YET? Do it. But also inform your friends, family, enemies, coworkers, bartenders, and neighbors about this event. Seriously.
My bet is they save Mr. November for last. Barack won't fuck us over, he's Mr. November.
My other bet is that they are trying their best to get Barack on the stage on Thursday. He will be, after all, debating in Toledo Wednesday night.
Seriously, come. If you are between Sidney and Cincy, I will personally come to your house with my car whose muffler seems to be falling off even though it's a 2002 model and drive you in my unairconditioned car all the way to Cincinnati although you have to find your own way back unless you live between Springboro and Cincy. (Story not interesting.)
If you are coming, let's hook up for a beer or ten.
