Tenacious D rocking the vote.

The voting booth is over there!

I’m going to have to have some words with my friend Kate, who goes to Kent State.  Apparently Jack Black and Kyle Gass (the duo that makes up Tenacious D) bought a tour bus, took it to Kent State, and have been carting students back and forth to vote early for Obama while rocking.

Jack Black and Kyle Gass — the comedians, actors and musicians behind Tenacious D — are coming to Kent State University Friday to get out the vote for President Barack Obama.

Tenacious D is expected to arrive at the Kent State M.A.C. Center around 11:30 a.m. The band will meet and greet students at the Kent Student Center, and then join students as they ride a bus to the Portage County Board of Elections to cast ballots until it closes.

And here I am in St. Louis.  Damn the luck!

    From what I heard they did a performance and took the first bus but had to leave to catch a plane after that. I didn’t get to go because I had to work.
