Barack the Vote: 4/17/2008 (w Arrested Development; and Abigail Washburn, Ben Sollee, and Bela Fleck)

BarackTheVote2008

One of the cool things about living in Asheville is that it boasts a truly eclectic music scene. That is evidenced by the mix of music at this fundraiser concert for Barack Obama. We had hip hop combined with acoustic music that included the great Bela Fleck on banjo. Those two styles are about as far apart on the spectrum as they come, but somehow, it all seemed to fit together well.

There was a diverse group of people at this show, individuals of all ages, races, and orientations. And for me, that was the coolest thing about this concert. I remember everybody dancing together, a total blending of individuals. It made me feel really happy to live in this community.

I don’t have much more to share about this concert. Honestly, I was mainly focused on the social aspects, and really, that is one of the great things about live music. It is a social experience.
