Yesterday afternoon Joe Uehlein, leader of the roots-rock group The U-Liners and an Obama supporter, sent out word announcing the band's "Election Victory Celebration" concert at Iota on Saturday night.
Does that seem a bit, uh, premature?
Actually it was waaaay premature. "I'm hopeful enough that I picked that Saturday and booked the Iota club a long time ago --- like in May," Uehlein explains.
But the show will go on regardless of today's election outcome, he promises. The party kicks off at 9 p.m. with opening act Memphis 59, and the cover is $12.
"If worst comes to worst and we don't win," Uehlein says, "we're going to play anyway under the banner of 'The revolution starts now.'"
