Rolling Stones, Eagles concerts: jamming and fundraising


Rolling Stones tines: good check-writing soundtrack? (Bizuayehu Tesfaye - AP)
Members of Congress have a few age-appropriate musical fundraisers on the books: Rep. Linda Sanchez (D-Calif.) might be giving her donors a little “Satisfaction” next week at a Rolling Stones concert

And on July 22, Sen. John Thune (R-S.D.) probably won’t have to go all “Desperado” to get folks to write checks at his Eagles concert/fundraiser.

Classic rock seems about right for their likely donor demographics (unlike, say, Rep. John Shimkus, who we’ve noted planned to raise money at the New Kids on the Block show tonight and a Beyonce concerts later this summer).

The Stones and Eagles performances are at the Verizon Center, a popular venue for lawmakers looking to make a few bucks to a live-music soundtrack.

Bring your earplugs and, the hosts would say, your checkbook.
