    The day the music did not die 

    Ohio isn't first or No. 1 in much these days (did you catch the Buckeyes' loss to Northwestern? no national championship this season), but this weekend no place in America was more rockin' than swing state Ohio, home to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. The shows that went off around the state Saturday were, in the words of Plain Dealer reporter Scott Hiaasen, a ``rekindling (of) the spirit of the 1960s anti-war movement and the `No Nukes' benefits a decade later. Check out Hiaasen and others on the PD Web site and the Akron Beacon Journal's own Malcom X Abram on Bruce Springsteen, R.E.M, the Dixie Chicks (the president's favorite group) and James Taylor at Gund Arena; The Columbus Dispatch (it is a pay-to-read site) on John Mellencamp at PromoWest Pavilion; the Blade on Pearl Jam's visit to Toledo, and the Dayton Daily News on the Dave Matthews Band and other musicians in Fairborn. In all, there were six Vote for Change concerts in five Ohio cities (two in Cleveland). Proceeds went to American Coming Together, which is opposing President Bush, and because of this ticket-buyers had to be registered voters and acknowledge they were contributing to a grassroots political organization.
