CANCELED: Jim James & An Evening for Barack Obama

On Oct. 16thBackseat Sandbar is proud to help present Jim James of My Morning Jacket who will be performing an intimate solo acoustic set at the Louisville Water Tower to raise money for the Barack Obama “Victory Fund”. At a recent performance at the Waterfront on August 16th, Jim stated “This year is a turning point for humanity” and we all knew what he meant.  Now, as the election draws nearer, Jim is coming home with a cause.

Seating is limited, and a minimum donation of $150 is required to attend. Doors open at 7pm and will feature guest speakers Louisville Mayor Jerry Abramson, Attorney General Jack Conway, Congressman John Yarmuth and Matthew Barzun (Chairman of the Obama Victory Fund), followed by a performance by Jim James.

All proceeds of this event will benefit the Barack Obama Victory Fund.  To make a donation and attend this event, please visit

UPDATE: Jim James was injured last night in Iowa and was been hospitalized and treated for his injuries.  At the request of his doctor, he is laying off for the next several weeks, which unfortunately means the cancelation of the remaining portions of his US tour.

  2. i love my morning jacket they are an up coming great… but music and polotics do not mix… and god came down from heaven to injure jim james so he didnt support the biggest idiot of our times!(barrack obama)
