Barack Rock in Brooklyn

Add Andrew Bird, Les Savy Fav (playing an "acoustic spectacular,") The Fiery Furnace and Special Guests (aka Franz Ferdinand) to the list of indie rockers for Obama. While not as stunning as the poster we saw last week for the upcoming National/Breeders Obama show in Cincinnati, it's still works for me, considering how many acts that they had to fit in there.

It's more than just rock, though, as there's also comedian (and indie rock groupie) Eugene Mirman. And how cool would it be to see home run hitter Josh Hamilton doing a reading George Saunders' New Yorker piece on Sarah Palin? We'll have to settle for the actor Josh Hamilton instead.

Meanwhile, The Boss and The Piano Man look to shore up the turnpike.
