Hype the hope and
fight the fear, yo.

 

By Blurt Staff

 

Andrew Bird, Les Savy Fav, Eugene Mirman, Guster, the Fiery
Furnaces, Heather Lawless, Alina Simone, BLURT blogger Martin Bisi, John
Roberts, Adira Amran, Kumail Nanjiani, Lizz Winstead and unspecified “Special
Secret Musical Guests” (rumored to be Franz Ferdinand) will all converge
on Brooklyn’s Music Hall of Williamsburg next week, on Oct. 7, to play a special
Obama fundraiser. One additional special guest of note: Josh Hamilton, billed
as “reading George Saunders on Palin.” (That should be fun!)

 

Tickets to “Barack Rock” will be $40, and the show will also
have television screens set up so attendees can watch that night’s debate between
Obama and McCain in Nashville.
