Headliner: Barack Obama

In Portland, Oregon this May Sen. Obama got a record crowd of 75,000.  What the media didn't tell you was that a popular Portland-based band, the Decemberists, was the free opening act. 

Well, history has repeated itself today in Berlin (emphasis in the original):

++ Pop Concert for Obama Fans ++

6:33 p.m.: The tens of thousands of Obama fans are being entertained as they await the senator. The reggae musician Patrice kicked things off, followed by the rock band Reamonn.

I have no idea how popular these bands are, since it's German crap, but it's kind of interesting that when Our Lord and Savior has a record crowd, there always seems to be free crap right beforehand.
