Don't know if anyone made it to the Michael Franti Spearhead
concert last night in Royal Oak last night but that was one Obama celebration if there ever was one. He jammed for two and a half hours to a crowd of young and old, black and white and all people in between. With reference after reference to the new administration and at the end he closed it out with a great song dedicated to Obama.

What a great show, what a great performer and writer, just outstanding. If you're not familiar with Franti he's a progressive hip hop performer who largely ignored by the traditional mainstream TV and radio channels of promotion, has gained a passionate worldwide audience through extensive touring and appearances in alternative media like Mother Jones Magazine and Democracy Now.

Check him out http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michael_Franti and if you're a fan of justice and music I urge you to see him next time he comes around.
