The Fiery Furnaces like Obama. They like Obama so much that, in an attempt to build awareness and support for the President's health care reform initiative, the bro-and-sis team are converting upcoming shows into mini-rallies, a plan made clear by two posts on their MySpace.
Why not have some information at your merch table, letting people know how they can support health care reform? Why not put someone on your guest list who can talk to people about how they can support health care reform? Why not mention that sort of thing from the stage, in the midst of one of your charming in-between-song monologues?
