Deadheads For Obama ’08

Lesh was behind the sold out “Deadheads For Obama ‘08″ rally at the Warfield Theater. His eighteen-year-old son Brian has been working as an Obama volunteer and Lesh described seeing Obama speak at a rally last fall in Brooklyn as “one of the most electrifying experiences in my life.” The Obama campaign contacted him about putting together a get-out-the-vote concert.
“The first thing I thought of was to talk to these two guys and say ‘Hey, are you with me on this?’ ” said Lesh. “Not only am I with you on this,” said Hart, “I was just about to call you up for the very same reason.” Obama, who has never attended a Dead concert but is said to have Dead music on his iPod, filmed a special video message for the Deadheads at last night’s concert.

    Steve Lipski NJ pisses on Deadheads for Obama

    JERSEY CITY, N.J. (AP) – A Jersey City councilman has reportedly been arrested for urinating on a crowd of concertgoers from the balcony of a Washington D.C. nightclub.
    The New York Daily News reports in Sunday’s editions that two-term Jersey City councilman Steve Lipski has been charged with simple assault.
    The newspaper says 44-year-old Lipski was removed from a place called the Nightclub 9:30 on Friday night.

    That’s after club staffers saw him relieve himself onto the crowd from a second floor balcony during a concert by a Grateful Dead tribute ban.

    Messages left at Lipski’s council office, and a Jersey City listing under his name were not immediately returned.
