Arcade Fire & Superchunk Rock For Obama In North Carolina

We already knew Win was all about Obama, but now Merge house band Superchunk’s also thrown their Barack support into the ring (sorry Britt, maybe Mac will run for office next time). The two groups are in the midst of performing a pair of afternoon all-ages shows in NC, hoping to inspire folks to vote for their candidate. One took place yesterday at the Greensboro Coliseum Complex Pavilion Parking Lot and there’s another today at the Carrboro Town Commons. (If you’re in NC, hurry up: Gates open at 1PM and the show starts at 2PM. Tickets are free, but you need ‘em to get in — last-minute info here.) Can’t make it and missed yesterday? No worries, the message translates OK via video.

“Keep the Car Running”

“Wake Up”

“Heroes” (Bowie)

“Power Out”

Then some Superchunk.


“Driveway To Driveway”

We’re hoping for “Slack Motherfucker,” of course. Also, there’s this snippet of “Rebellion (Lies),” but nothing substantial. Notice that if you press pause at the beginning of a couple of the videos, you’ll get the AF setlist.
