Win Butler can talk the talk, and now he and several of his Arcade Fire bandmates are prepared to walk the walk in support of Barack Obama’s bid for the Democratic Party’s presidential nomination.
With several major primaries going down this coming Tuesday (March 4) that could decide the contest once and for all, Butler, Regine Chassagne, Jeremy Gara, and Sarah Neufeld will hit Ohio on Sunday and Monday to drum up support for Obama.
On Sunday March 2, they will play a show at Stuart’s Opera House in Nelsonville. Then on Monday, March 3, they’ll play at the Beachland Ballroom in Cleveland. Start lining up now, because the shows are free and first come, first serve. Colin Stetson will open.
Since this is first-come, first-server for tickets I’m wondering what the odds are that I could show up around 6ish for the Nelsonville performance and still get in?
