While Mitt Romney may have Kid Rock, Rodney Atkins and, uh, Meat Loaf (!) in his corner, El Presidente has Ryan Adams in his, and, well, musically, that's pretty much a trump card if ever there was one. Adams is throwing his muscle behind the Obama/Biden campaign this evening by playing a free acoustic show at the Boulder Theater. We can't imagine there's any way that tickets for this aren't already spoken for, but it's certainly worth a try; you can RSVP directly at the Gotta Vote page on MyBarackObama.com.
