J Lo, Rage, Fall Out Boy come out for Obama
A string of stars have descended on Denver, CO for the National Democratic Convention, which kicked off today (August 25).

Fall Out Boy, Pharrell Williams and Jakob Dylan are all expected at tonight’s Rock The Vote ‘Ballot Bash’, while tomorrow Moby will DJ the ‘Do Something’ party.

Jennifer Lopez will show her support at an event at the Denver Art Museum on Wednesday, while Rage Against The Machine will perform at the Denver Coliseum hoping to pressure the party into making a statement against the Iraq war.

Other acts performing in support of Barack Obama over the coming week include Black Eyes Peas, Silversun Pickups, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, Nada Surf and Cold War Kids.

Meanwhile, Barack Obama on Saturday announced Joe Biden as his running mate in the US general election. Republican candidate John McCain has yet to unveil his choice of Vice President.
