Protest Concert at Democratic National Convention by DLOOS

On August 27th (Wednesday) a protest concert was staged outside the D.N.C. in support of Iraq Veterans Against the War. It started as a 2-mile march across Denver to the Pepsi Center. A mass of what was said to be between 4,500 to 6,000 people gathered outside the Pepsi Center, and refused to stand in what was designated as the protest zone, dubbed the Freedom Cage. Most of the protesters just relaxed, smoking weed and playing dice. Performers included Flobots, The Coup and Rage Against the Machine, who for the first time in their career, played a show which didn’t involve the audience going into a violent frenzy. Among the highlights of the day were RATM breaking into their MC5 cover “Kick Out the Jams” with assistance from MC5 guitarist himself, Wayne Kramer, dressed in all white with an American Flag painted guitar.

Moving towards the Unknown, and away from the Unacceptable! by isodope

“America, we cannot turn back. Not with so much work to be done. Not with so many children to educate, and so many veterans to care for. Not with an economy to fix and cities to rebuild and farms to save. Not with so many families to protect and so many lives to mend. America, we cannot turn back. We cannot walk alone. At this moment, in this election, we must pledge once more to march into the future. Let us keep that promise – that American promise – and in the words of Scripture hold firmly, without wavering, to the hope that we confess.  Thank you, God Bless you, and and God Bless the United States of America.”

                                                                   —Barack Obama

 

        Not to be corny, not to be cliche, and not to be cool:  Senator Barack Obama’s speech was more than a mere oratory.  It was a symbol of hope, a symphony of change, it was a call to action.  It was a helping hand to those in need, and a threat to McCain and Republicans.  When Senator Obama took the stage, the crowd erupted.  However, Obama quieted them down and got down to business.  

 

 It is [The American] promise that has always set this country apart – that through hard work and sacrifice, each of us can pursue our individual dreams but still come together as one American family, to ensure that the next generation can pursue their dreams as well.”

Pre-Obama Post by isodope

Ok So I’m gonna try to get everything out before Obama speaks. Bill Richardson did a great job warming up the crowd, and rousing up latinos all around the country. Stevie Wonder came out, and he wasn’t exactly on point. However, When he broke out in to “Sign, Sealed, Delivered, I’m Yours” My confidence in his long-lasting swag…was completely restored. “Livin’ For The City” would be a great theme for this campaign, so why not play that while Democrat-ing.

Anyways, Gore is speaking as I type. So let me get at that right quick. I will post again after Obama’s speech.

 

“McCain and Bush: Same old policies. I’m in to recycling…But this is ridiculous”

–Al Gore (paraphrased)

Murs Show – 16+ by DLOOS

Murs

The eccentric political rapper, is touring to showcase his new album Murs For President. The tracks I have heard from it so far are some of the most original music I have heard released in the last couple years, then again Murs is one of the most original rappers out right now.

The first hit track from the new album is called “Better Than The Best” and uses a sample from the famous Motown group, The Temptations’ famous track “Sugar Pie, Honey Bunch”. You can get the track here. Until the new record releases you can check out his 2006 record with 9th Wonder called Murray’s Revenge.

In any case Murs will be hitting New York City’s Bowery Ballroom at 156 Ludlow Street on October 29. The downside is it is 16+ but I don’t think they can card you as a minor so all you little kids can probably get in anyway. Tickets are running about $18 and it is definitely not sold out so get tickets while you can. Buy your tickets here.
