The Jon Stewart-Stephen Colbert rallies in Washington DC are starting to pick up musical artists.
I’m told that the rallies, set for October 30th, have already booked Jeff Tweedy of Wilco.
More names are coming. But the organizers also have asked for Cat Stevens, aka Yusuf Islam. The famed 70s pop singer is deciding whether or not to accept the invitation.
Toby Keith and the magnificent Mavis Staples are also said to be on the list for both rallies, which will be on the Mall in Washington DC and are semi serious send ups of the idiotic Sarah Palin-Glenn Beck rally of a few weeks ago.
