Morning Jacket mainman Jim James will be joined by the band’s guitarist &
multi-instrumentalist Carl Broemel in a visit to Keene, New Hampshire
for a rare solo performance on behalf of the Obama campaign on Monday, October
1st, 2012.  The concert will take place at the Colonial Theater, with
doors opening at 7:00pm.  Opening for Jim James and Carl Broemel will be
Craig Finn of The Hold Steady.  The concert will help raise awareness
about what’s at stake this election for young Americans.

On his support for the President’s reelection campaign, Jim James says,
“It is so crucial for us all to work together to help build on and
continue the progress we have been making under President Obama’s leadership –
to get America to be a land that takes care of its own and provides equal
opportunity to all – regardless of gender, race, or creed. I believe in
President Obama’s vision for America
– at home and as a better friend to the world – and want to help raise
awareness of the importance of a person’s right to vote.”

According to the James camp, “The complimentary concert is part of the
campaign’s “For All” initiative, whose mission is to engage and maximize
participation from young Americans. “For All” illustrates the shared values of
the President and young Americans across the country: that if we work together,
we can continue to move this country forward.

“The collective voices of young people drive this campaign through student to
student, peer to peer and neighbor to neighbor outreach, organization and
communication about the issues they care about.  From expanding access to
affordable, quality health care, to ensuring more students can attend college,
to standing up for our country’s servicemen and women, to advancing equal
rights, President Obama has proven time and again that he is committed to issues
important to young Americans.”
