Free Wilco Song!

Last night, Geoffrey Velvet (aka Jeff Tweedy) & Co were on the Colbert Report rockin' for the cause to vote. While Wilco is a long-time Obama supporter, their message is a bi-partisan effort to encourage people to get out and vote next Tuesday.

So by going to, anyone who plans on voting (or anyone who wishes to fib) can make their solemn promise to Wilco to vote in the presidential election and, in exchange, will receive a free live recording of Wilco and the Fleet Foxes covering Dylan.

Pretty sweet.

In case you missed 'em, here's the interview:

... and the performance of "Wilco The Song:"

Side note: has anyone else found this year's voter encouragement efforts as far more digestible than 2004's "Vote Or Die" campaign?


  1. Vote or die...ha.
    I don't feel like it was it was more digestible necessarily, just that the candidates were easier to feel passionately about. People cared this year, and it made all the difference in the world.

  2. I really did care about the election, but now i'm just really sad I missed out on that song!!
