The campaign of Barack Obama took a chance that indie rock fans would rise before noon in effort to promote North Carolina’s One-Stop Early Voting program. The program, which allows voters to both register and vote at the same time, began April 17 and will run through May 3. As incentive, Obama’s campaign gave out free tickets in Forsythe, Guilford, Randolph, Almanace, Orange, Durham, and Wake Counties during the early hours of April 24.
The Change Rocks shows will take place on May 1 and May 2 and will feature Canada’s the Arcade Fire and Superchunk, who call North Carolina home. And no, the shows will not be early too. [Merge]
