Ok, doing my part to fight the Death Star, and with apologies for another last-minute plug, Charles is playing a solo show along with the Console War for a Barack Obama fundraiser tonight, Thursday, 9/4/08 in Washington D.C.

The event itself runs 6:00pm – 9:00pm w/ music starting around 7:00 and is at:

Darlington House

1610 20TH ST NW (right off dupont metro north)

Washington, D.C.

Please come by if you are free tonight. Although the suggested donation is $150 (it’s very ‘Beltway’) the organizers stress they want people to come to enjoy the party and contributing any amount helps.

Here’s their official invite/description:


...time is running out....

Please join us for a night of excellent live music with shows from Console War and Charles Bissell.

Downstairs, there'll be delicious munchies and big-screen TVs for Redskins watching...

....and, as always, there will be fantastic company and lively conversation. We're encouraging donations, of course, to attend, but all are welcome. Please click here now to donate.

For those who can't make it, please help us raise funds for the Obama campaign by contributing now!

(Those of our dear friends who are lobbyists, we understand, and yes, please come without donating. Yes, special treatment, yet again....)
