This past week I got to attend the DNC Convention and take in some of the music on Thursday. So here are a few clips which include:
Chuck D (with intro from Jim Hightower and an interview with Chuck D himself)
Yonder Mountain String Band
(Sorry I could not include Stevie Wonder’s ‘Signed Sealed and Delivered’ – too busy singing and dancing)
And, some highlights of Al Gore and of Barack Obama speaking…
In this segment at the SEIU Healthcare rally, Jim Hightower has a quote about the Bush administration
If ignorance ever goes to $100 a barrel, you want to drill on George Bush’s head
If you get a chance check out Chuck D’s radio show ‘On the Real
(btw- when rappers and cowboys unite, you know a change is coming)
Next up: Yonder Mountain String Band – from Nederland, Colorado
Yes, they started the party up!
Next up Sheryl Crow – Yes a change will do us good…
Here is AL Gore
Finally: Barack Obama (with Biden intro)
By this point the crowd was all in to it, as you will see in the “Wave” going through the crowd – better than most football waves. This Wave lasted much, much longer than the clip shows. Also, notice how long it took for Obama just to be able to speak – due to the chanting crowd.
I had to stop filming at that point, basically because i was just too darn excited at that point – too much yelling for Obama.
