    Default Sheryl Crow, Beastie Boys, and Jack Johnson just came to my college.

    They told us to vote in the upcoming election.

    Basically, they all did a gig in a big park on my campus. It was for this "Rock the Vote" tour that they are all doing to inform people about voting. It all started around 1:30 in the afternoon.

    Now I really don't much interest in any artist mentioned except the Beastie Boys. But this was a free show, and it is always cool to see huge artists in such an open and relaxed setting.

    They were introduced by surprise guest Santogold, who made herself look like a complete idiot:

    Santogold: "You can register to vote and to have a voice in this election!"

    A few people in crowd: "But, it's too late to register for this one..."

    Santogold: "Oh yeah haha. Well then you can vote in next year's election!"

    Crowd: "but the next election is in 4 years..."

    Santogold: "Oh yeah haha well then you can vote in that one!"


    So yeah, that was exciting. First up was Sheryl Crow, who played two songs. I don't know the name of the first one, but the 2nd one was "Everyday is a winding road" - we all know the tune. It basically bore everyone, all of whom were there mostly for Jack Johnson and the Beasties.

    After she went off, the Beastie Boys came onstage and, instead of playing songs, just tell people how important it is to vote. Adam mentioned that he was voting for Obama, which drew alot of cheers from the audience, but when they said "and next up is Jack Johnson everyone, enjoy!" without playing any songs, we were very disappointed. The BBs introducing Jack Johnson? Shouldn't it be the other way around? This discussion seems very familiar, I wonder why!

    So Jack Johnson came on and played 2 songs. They were ok. Too cheesy and a bit cliche for my liking - they both sounded the same. The crowd loved him though. After he went off, a couple of local bands came on next, and the crowd pretty much dispersed.

    Not bad I guess for something free, but i'm pissed that the Beasties didn't play a song or two. That would have been cool. But they're all doing a gig tonight (probably finished by now) at the Richmond Coliseum.

    Here are some pics:

    The crowd. not a bad size.

    Good boy re: not walking out when JJ was introduced/played. It's just meant for you to see him live this year. You gotta love those conflicts at festivals, Matt.

    It really is. thats what at least half the crowd was hoping for.

    the other people just wanted to see Jack Johnson.

    I don't think anyone really cared about Sheryl Crow.

    I guess I see your point. You are the BB authority here so you know best. But it would have been entertaining to see them work something out I guess.

    well except for the occasional butt pee talk, neither do i. and it really dosent matter at all, just curious from that statement.

    i too am always shocked when a poster turns out to be a female.

    missingperson would be a fine example of that.

    Beastie would have been sick, stupid Santogold, that would have been sick if that happened at my college, but then again nothing cool goes on there, usually...

    I didn't see this anywhere on the board and didn't want to create a new thread for it.
    iTunes is offering a Sheryl Crow video for free and I snagged it.
    during the vid, I noticed that at 2:05 into it, there are a few shots of Coachella in it.
    the theme of the vid is all types of people throwin' up peace signs.
