Jim James, lead singer/songwriter for popular band My Morning Jacket will be joined by the band's guitarist & multi-instrumentalist Carl Broemel in a visit to Keene, New Hampshire for a rare solo performance on behalf of the Obama campaign on Monday, October 1, 2012. The concert will take place at the Colonial Theater, with doors opening at 7:00pm. Opening for Jim James and Carl Broemel will be Craig Finn of The Hold Steady. The concert will help raise awareness about what's at stake this election for young Americans.
On his support for the President's reelection campaign, Jim James says, "It is so crucial for us all to work together to help build on and continue the progress we have been making under President Obama's leadership - to get America to be a land that takes care of its own and provides equal opportunity to all - regardless of gender, race, or creed. I believe in President Obama's vision for America - at home and as a better friend to the world - and want to help raise awareness of the importance of a person's right to vote."
