Going to see Martin O'Malley this evening! O'Malley's March is playing in DC!

http://birdhousestudio9.wix.com/omalleysmarch

If I get a chance, I will ask him if he is thinking about a run in the primaries!

Either way, he's a pretty good musician!

2. I believe he will throw his hat in the ring, but either way, I love good celtic bands!

I will report back!

It's interesting in that this is not really publicized at all… not even at the centers website… http://www.washingtonparks.net/parks_center


I happened to find it while doing some research for this thread: http://www.democraticunderground.com/10026374118

This was the governor before he began his first set of music tonite. I am not good at video's, so I apologize for the quality.

I hope he runs!

8. I liked him a lot.

He's not playing around.

Having said that, I am biased — I like a man who is a good musician and can lead a band.

7. So, this was an interesting evening.

you can see upthread I posted links to a few videos that me and my husband took, We made them available to the public so everyone can see them (I will try to see if I can do the youtube thing if that is better in the future)

We got there, and realized that it wasn't just a gig. Immediately we saw the Banners and new this was a fundraiser — totally fine to me.

We go in, and see that there is a list of guests. We told the people at the door that we showed up because we saw he had a gig from his band website (see the OP) they told us to go to the other room. We explained again and it turns out this was a fundraiser for the young professional democrats in DC — or something like that. Basically we crashed a party, a really awesome one at that.


They said it was 40 dollars a person. I was ready to pay, but they looked at us and said 40 bucks for the two of you is fine, We are happy to have you here!


Food and open bar. SWEET — even though Bob and I were pretty much the oldest people there, with the exception of the band…


I want to say this, Mr. O'Malley will have my support at this point should he run. I want a primary. I will vote for whoever wins the nomination, but this man, coupled will all of his accomplishments as governor, has what it takes should he want to run.

And, I can tell you, Mr O'Malley does like Guinness!

12. Now THAT is how you send a message.

 



I'm pretty sure he announced his candidacy in verse 3. The fourth verse was great as well!

I don't want to spoil it for anyone else, but

This land is your land, Raise the minimum wage, this land is my land

14. Yes, I heard that too!

 

I was trying not to spoil it for anyone who hasn't listened to it yet, but it's probably better to get that out there, too. Maybe that will entice more to listen to his message.
