Arcade Fire To Play Gigs Supporting Obama

Now you may ask yourself why would a Canadian band be playing in support of Barack Obama? But if you dig deeper you will find out that Arcade Fire frontman Win Butler was born and raised in Texas as was his brother Will. Régine Chassagne holds dual US-Canadian citizenship and her father fought in Vietnam. ONly four members of the band will be playing at the two gigs. Win & Will Butler, Régine Chassagne and Jeremy Gara. The first concert will take place this Sunday March 2 at Stuart’s Opera House in Nelsonville, Ohio, it is free of charge and has no age limit. THe show is at 7 p.m. and is first come first serve. The second show will also be free and will be at at the Beachland Ballroom in Cleveland the following day on March 3 at 7 p.m. but will be only 18 & over allowed and first come first serve. I envy those of you who live in Ohio and even better if you support Barack Obama.
