The Roots, Sheryl Crow, Mavis Staples to perform at Jon Stewart D.C. rally
Stewart, who is hosting the rally with Stephen Colbert, has been in Washington all week with "The Daily Show"; you might have missed his prickly interview with Barack Obama Wednesday night.
The Roots are scheduled for a pre-show performance, and Staples and Tweedy will go on for ten minutes at 1:40 p.m. Crow would follow later at 2:15 p.m. The entire show is scheduled to last nearly four hours.
The permit also allows that more musical guests may be added.
The rally is expected to be massive - a Huffington Post founder is even sponsoring 200 buses, and several side rallies are planned. Midnight Sun won't be there - there's too much Halloween in Baltimore this weekend - are any readers going?
