The Only Way To Go
as you may know, Superchunk is playing a couple shows for Barack Obama with a fresh young Canadian outfit called Arcade Fire this Thursday and Friday in Greensboro and Carrboro, NC -- there are still plenty of free tickets for the Greensboro show, though Carrboro is sold out and will be nuts (and fun). we went to see the man himself last night in Chapel Hill at the cavernous Smith Center, and while everyone was pretty beat and running out of steam by the time Obama got there (Sam "Big Smooth" Perkins' inspirational message can only keep you going for so long), he was great and it was worth hearing the man speak in person. he appeared a bit tired himself, and how can he not be? but still, glad we got to see him.
May 6 is the primary here in NC and it's obviously a huge one. Vote early and often! actually i think that's illegal, so just vote early!
