Power to the Freaks!

Colorado’s acoustic jam scene will have a massive audience tonight as Yonder Mountain String Band takes the stage at Mile High Stadium just prior to Barack Obama’s acceptance speech.


Also scheduled to perform at the event are: will.i.am, Stevie Wonder and Dave Matthews Band.

The convention anticipates 75,000 people in attendance, and a huge international and national media audience, for the acceptance event. 

This 2008 Democratic National Convention is the first convention to be held in Denver in one hundred years.

I hope the band plays “Two Hits and the Joint Turned Brown.” Although “Finally Saw the Light” would also do nicely.
