The National to Open Campaign Rally for President Obama


Brooklyn’s The National have always been fans of President Obama.  They played a bunch of events for him in 2008 and lended their song “Fake Empire” to his campaign that year.  Well, in this rediclous election cycle, The National are behind him again, opening a rally in Iowa on September 1st.  We don’t talk politics really here at DDR, as I am anti everyone.  But it is pretty cool when an indie band is asked by POTUS to open a rally.  The question is, will they play “Mr. November”?  Check out said song below.  Will he or will he won’t fuck us over?
